Exploring legal options for truck accident victims

An unexpected truck accident can devastate the lives of the victims. Because truck accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and damages to truck accident victims, it is important for truck accident victims and their families to be familiar with the legal protections available to them when they have been harmed because a truck driver or trucking company was negligent and a truck was not properly handled or maintained.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that during 2011 alone 3,757 victims were killed and 88,000 victims were injured in large truck accidents. During the same year, 287,000 large trucks were involved in truck accidents throughout the U.S. In Colorado, most people are no strangers to sharing the roadways with large trucks. Because of their size, especially when compared to the average motor vehicle they share the roadway with, truck accidents can result in serious harm to victims.

When a truck driver or trucking company has been negligent and caused an accident, they may be liable to compensate the victim for damages. Damages can include medical expenses, lost wages and other damages as well, depending on the circumstances. At times, a personal injury claim for damages following a truck accident can be complex and it is important for victims to be able to identify all of the parties that may be liable for the harm they suffered and to know how to work with insurance companies who are commonly involved in the process of compensating victims.

Because of how important a claim for damages can be to truck accident victims facing medical expenses, lost wages and the emotional harm associated with a truck accident, getting the right information through the process can be valuable.
