An experienced truck accident attorney and a regular contributor to Legal Herald, Brian Kent had the following information to share for individuals who may have been victims of injuries in truck collisions:
“In our country, there are millions of vehicles that take to the streets every day. And while cars are truly useful in helping us get around and trucks are helpful for the big tasks, tragic accidents are seemingly waiting around every corner.
Indeed, lives are greatly affected if not lost every day in motor vehicle accidents. Entire families can feel the repercussions of these incidents, and with the mounting financial burdens that a victim and their loved ones can face, it can be difficult if not impossible to recover.
On one hand, insurance policies can provide some relief, at least until they reach their limit. This is because insurance companies set a maximum amount to pay in benefits for each policy and, when this threshold is reached, victims stop receiving help whether they’ve gotten back on their feet or not.
For this reason, and even though it’s rarely their first choice, victims and their families have to resort to legal processes to achieve justice.
Through a truck accident lawsuit, victims can pursue compensation that covers all medical costs and funeral or burial expenses in the case of death, among other damages resulting from an accident.
To determine whether they may be able to file a lawsuit, victims of truck accidents should discuss their case with an experienced truck collision attorney who will be able to analyze the circumstances, lay out all the options, and then fight tirelessly in the pursuit of the victim’s compensation and justice.”
