Injuries from motorcycle accidents tend to be catastrophic and may cause scarring, disfigurement, and temporary or permanent disability. In the most severe accidents, the injuries may be fatal. After a serious accident, it is critical that you receive adequate compensation to cover medical costs and other expenses.
Motorcycle accident victims may suffer broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, burn injuries, back and neck injuries, or spinal cord injuries. The severity of these types of injuries means that long-term care may be necessary. This can include multiple surgeries and cosmetic procedures, physical rehabilitation, psychotherapy, occupational rehabilitation and pain management.
Accidents that involve large commercial trucks often lead to catastrophic injuries or death. With the weight and size of large trucks in relation to passenger cars, the impact is often very severe.
Truck accidents can be caused by a wide range of issues, including:
- Truck drivers who are under the influence of drugs / alcohol
- Failure to brake correctly
- Driving too fast for conditions
- Truck driver fatigue
- Refusal to allow other vehicles to merge
- Turning too wide when making turns
Truck drivers often work illegally long shifts and are given unrealistic schedules that they must meet, which can result in severe accidents and catastrophic injuries. Although truck drivers are often the liable party in trucking accidents, accidents can also be caused by the trucking company through failure to provide adequate training, improper maintenance, failure to properly inspect tires, and use of defective or poorly maintained big rigs.
Anyone involved in a serious truck accident should not delay in obtaining medical attention and legal representation. We can use a variety of experts to help you build your case and develop a powerful injury claim. Our firm is committed to achieving the optimal result for each of our clients, especially as they suffer physical and emotional pain caused by the accident. Fighting against commercial trucking insurance companies is no easy task, which is why we can help you through the process.
