Attorney Contributor Speaks About Legal Rights Of Truck Accident Victims

Laurence Banville of Banville Law is an attorney contributor at the Legal Herald. He has provided information on the legal rights of truck accident victims who have been injured in a crash.

"There is no denying that when someone has been seriously injured in a truck accident their world is forever changed. Serious injuries commonly include:

  • traumatic brain injury
  • spinal damage
  • broken bones
  • amputations
  • nerve damage
  • burns

Each of these injuries can cost an enormous amout of money to treat and that's without the potential complications that frequently occur. Auto insurance may help to pay for some of the treatments but make no mistake, insurance companies stop paying for claims as soon as the policy limits run out.

A truck accident lawsuit, filed against the negligent party, is a way for accident victims to fight for the compensation that they deserve, the compensation that could keep them from financial ruin.

If a victim dies from the injuries sustained in the accident, their loved ones can file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf. Compensation can't bring back a loved one but it can help to sooth the financial losses a family has as a result.

If you or a loved one were recently hurt in a truck accident, contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible."
