For the first nine months of 2015, there were 3,226 fatalities and 51,850 injuries due to large truck crashes in the U.S. (U.S. Dept. of Transportation). Big-rig accidents are particularly deadly due to the immense size and weight of these large trucks. If they survive, victims of these accidents typically suffer catastrophic injuries that will affect them — and their families — for a lifetime.
Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, ATV accidents, bus accidents and bicycle accidents claim tens of thousands of lives every year and injure hundreds of thousands more. The devastation these accidents can bring to the lives of the victims and their families is very real, and the effects can linger for decades. Having a trusted legal advocate involved in your accident case can make a big difference in your recovery, both physically and financially.
