A previous post here discussed the prevalence and causes of semi-truck rollovers. These types of wrecks can be extremely dangerous for not only the trucker, but also motorists who happen to be in the vicinity at the time of the crash. The truth is that far too many North Carolina residents are hurt in truck accidents, some involving rollovers, and the damage that can be caused can be significant. Sure, a victim’s vehicle can be totaled, but an individual’s life can also be altered due to serious injuries.
If you have been hurt in a truck accident, then you know just how harmful they can be. You might have suffered a disabling or disfiguring injury, and the medical care associated with treating it might be more expensive than you can handle. Making matters worse, you might have been subjected to pain and suffering that continues to this day, and your injuries may have caused you to miss work and thereby lose wages.
Fortunately, if you are trying to cope with these damages, you may have legal options. A personal injury lawsuit against a negligent trucker, the truck company for which the driver works, or both, could lead to the recovery of compensation to cover your economic and non-economic losses. This includes medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. Winning a personal injury lawsuit may also help you find closure after such a terrible and life-altering accident. Yet, succeeding on a claim often requires the right legal approach.
At our law firm, we stand up to negligent truckers and their employers. We fight for the compensation our clients deserve. We strive to convince judges and juries of our clients’ injuries and their extent, as well as the fault of the defendants.
