Although all motor vehicle accidents can lead to serious harm, collisions with 18-wheelers disproportionally result in catastrophic and fatal personal injuries. Indeed, collisions with any type of large truck can cause life-changing or life-threatening injuries, leaving victims and their families facing high medical bills, significant lost wages, and extreme pain and suffering.

And it doesn’t take a high-speed accident to cause such harm, either. Due to a truck’s significant weight, even at low speeds a truck will generate significant enough momentum and force to cause serious bodily injuries.

However, the most serious types of 18-wheeler accidents are those caused on faster moving highways, thruways, and interstates. Not only is the force of impact magnified on these fast-moving roadways, but the excessive force could also cause fires, leading to burns or smoke inhalation.

Fortunately, the law allows victims and families who were hit by an 18-wheeler to recover compensation for their damages. This includes compensation for:

  • Past pain and suffering,
  • Future pain and suffering,
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • And Other damages that Daggett Shuler can recover for you after being hit by an 18-wheeler.
