Car accidents between passenger vehicles are common, especially in rush hour traffic in Los Angeles. However, the relative frequency of these types of accidents should not overshadow how common it is for a large vehicle, like a semi-truck, to cause an accident. Like all accident victims, truck accident victims who have suffered injuries may have legal options.
However, despite the availability of potential legal options for these accident victims, it is important to move quickly after a truck accident. This is because the truck company will be moving fast on its own, doing its best to limit the company’s exposure to legal liability. In fact, the company’s strategy may even be to attempt to pin the blame for the accident on the driver of the passenger vehicle that was involved.
Even though pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against a truck driver and the trucking company may be a somewhat difficult process, it is often worth the effort for victims. These victims may be dealing with devastating injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and even spinal injuries. Catastrophic injuries like these all have one thing in common: they will cost the victim thousands of dollars in medical expenses.
It shouldn’t be the victims who need to worry about medical expenses for injuries that they suffered in a truck accident they didn’t cause.
