You have just spent a memorable week with the family on vacation, and on the long drive home, something goes terribly wrong. One swerve a little too far to the left from a tractor-trailer truck on the highway turns your summer memories into a nightmare. It happened in an instant, screeching tires, a crash, and then everything stopped.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, in 2017, over 3,200 people were killed in crashes involving large tractor-trailer trucks, accounting for nearly 69% of all motor related deaths.
Accidents with semi-trucks can be dangerous and life-changing. Coming back from an accident of that magnitude can be a slow, devastating process involving not only the healing of physical trauma but the mental and emotional trauma as well. If the truck driver was at fault, taking steps to ensure medical expenses and compensation are covered can be difficult, and the process can seem endless.
