Nearly 4,000 people are killed by large trucks on U.S. roadways each year and well over 100,000 are injured, according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) – that's almost 12 people every hour. Accidents with big trucks – the kind that pull heavy trailers behind them – cause hundreds of millions of dollars in injuries annually, and because of the mass of these giant vehicles, the severity of injuries can be especially severe.
What's more, recovering damages from a truck accident – from medical costs to lost wages to pain and suffering – can be especially difficult. Why? Because most of these trucks are operated by large companies with ample legal representation dedicated to keeping claims costs as low as possible, so making sure your side is fairly heard is difficult, if not impossible. That's why having your own legal representation to protect your rights is so critical in accidents involving large trucks, or any type of commercial vehicle.
Truck accident claims depend on a comprehensive investigation of the facts surrounding the accident in order to be successful. Working with truck accident attorneys in Columbia from the start is the best way to ensure your rights are completely protected and you receive the compensation you deserve for your medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Because many injuries can cause long-term effects, having an attorney experienced in truck injuries is critical to making sure your costs are covered now and in the future.
