Automobile accidents can change lives for the worst. The physical, psychological, and financial toll of enduring such an event may push people to the absolute limit. Luckily, they don’t have to do it alone.
Learning more about the specific types of accidents is essential to help set your expectations for different lawsuits. While no one enjoys any accident, few can argue that 18-wheeler accidents are especially devastating.
What Is an 18-Wheeler Accident?
As the name suggests, 18-wheeler accidents are those that involve 18-wheelers and an impacted party. These large commercial vehicles have a tractor and large trailer, often used for shipping large quantities of products to stores and warehouses.
Why Are 18-Wheeler Accidents so Dangerous?
The design of 18-wheelers makes them more dangerous than accidents with smaller vehicles. They are much larger than the average car and can really make more than a dent.
Additionally, the vehicle’s design makes them difficult to control, increasing drivers’ chances of being responsible for the accidents. In addition to reduced control, they also give drivers a big blind spot, and typically house drivers whose job it is to drive around are exhausted 24/7.
Can You Really Receive so Much?
Many people are afraid to pursue lawsuits after 18-wheeler accidents because they believe they do not have the resources. Some think it is a lost cause that will only cause more stress in their lives than anything else.
We are here to tell you that this is not the case at all. When working with experienced lawyers with many cases under their belt, it’s possible to get victims the compensation they truly deserve.
Just recently, our team member, Sara Williams, helped a client recover half a million dollars in a settlement following an 18-wheeler accident.
