Big Rig Accident Lawyers

Large trucks are often referred to as “big-rigs,” and when you are involved in an accident with a commercial trailer tractor, you will probably suffer physical injuries as well as emotional harm. Due to their size and caliber, big-rigs can cause catastrophic harm to your body as well as your vehicle.

Because these trucks transport products across the country every day, they are likely loaded with about 80,000 pounds. In the case that they hit your much smaller vehicle, you will likely be hurt and suffer damages as a result.

Causes of Big-Rig Accidents

Traffic accidents are caused by many factors, including things like poor road maintenance or inclement weather. However, when your smaller vehicle is hit by a big-rig truck, it might be because of the other driver’s negligence. Truck drivers work long hours and are often exhausted or distracted. As a result of their negligence, you might become catastrophically hurt and injured. Many big-rig truck accidents have been caused by:

  • Pure negligence or irresponsibility
  • Distractions like radio, cell phones, or other digital devices
  • Exhaustion after a long period of driving on the driver’s part

Injuries and Complications You May Acquire After the Accident

No matter how you were hurt or injured, the fact of the matter is you deserve to fight for your rights. After an accident, you will have to deal with many consequences, and most of them are physical injuries that can include:

  • Broken bones or limb puncture
  • Burn injuries
  • Catastrophic damage to your brain, spine, heart, and other vital organs
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful deaths
  • Bruises and lacerations

On top of the physical injuries sustained in a big-rig accident, you will likely accumulate emotional trauma and pain. You might find it difficult to return to work. Driving will become a dreaded task. Other smaller activities in life that were once enjoyable to you will no longer be so. A big-rig accident can affect you in many ways than just physical damage, and you will still have to deal with:

  • Medical bills
  • Communication with insurance
  • Hospital expenses
  • Funeral preparations
  • Loss of wages
  • Inability to work
  • Other bills
