Any type of motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious injuries. However, when a passenger vehicle is involved in an accident with a large truck, such as a semi-truck, the injuries for the driver and any passengers in the smaller vehicle could be devastating, while the occupants of the large truck may walk away from the accident without a scratch.
When Southern California residents are involved in truck accidents, they may have legal options.
Personal injury lawsuits are intended to help accident victims hold negligent parties accountable, as well as to attempt to recover financial compensation. The compensation is often used to cover medical expenses that occur in the aftermath of a serious accident, which can be significant. But, financial compensation can also be sought for pain and suffering and lost wages as well, among other potential damages.
The extent of the damages and injuries caused by a truck accident are significant parts of any given personal injury case. In many of these cases, victims suffer head injuries, brain injuries and spine injuries or there may even be fatalities involved. The more extensive the injuries, the higher the amount of the financial compensation the victim is likely to seek.
