Recently, this blog discussed how semi-trucks need additional distance to come to a safe stop when compared to the stopping distances of passenger vehicles. This distance can be affected by a number of factors, including driver attentiveness and sobriety. Far too often, though, truckers are distracted, fatigued, intoxicated or otherwise negligent while behind the wheel. Even truck companies oftentimes fail to properly maintain their trucks and train their employees. Any one of these factors could cause a devastating truck accident that leaves a victim with serious injuries.
Recovering from these injuries can be trying, too. Physical pain can be a difficult thing to cope with, and a victim's finances can take a significant hit on account of unexpected medical expenses and lost wages suffered from being unable to work. The stress of the entire situation can leave a victim completely overwhelmed and concerned for his or her future.
This is understandable, but these victims don't need to be afraid. Instead, they need to feel empowered to take legal action on the rights afforded to them by the law. Under the law, individuals who are injured by the negligence of others may be able to recover compensation for their damages.
