Laurence Banville of BanvilleLaw.com is an experienced truck accident attorney who has dedicated his life to fighting for victim’s rights. He understands exactly how traumatizing it can be when a loved one is injured or killed in an incident involving a truck:
“Most people understand that car accidents are something that occurs every day in the United States. Unfortunately, drivers and passengers don’t often walk away from these incidents without some type of injury. When a crash involves a tractor-trailer or semi-truck, the resulting damages are generally much more severe.
Some of the types of injuries suffered by victims of truck accidents can include broken bones, nerve damage, spinal trauma, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and burns, among others. By themselves, each of these can entail years of treatment and millions in bills.
Insurance policies can often cover some of these damages, but all policies have a limit and when it is met, victims stop receiving payments whether they were made whole or not. This is why, in a lot of cases, the only way for victims and their loved ones to achieve the compensation they need to recover fully is through a truck accident lawsuit. Via a lawsuit, victims can receive a payout that covers past and future medical costs as well as other damages that can include loss of income and loss of companionship.
Victims and loved ones of victims of these tragic accidents who are considering their legal options should discuss their circumstances with an experienced truck accident lawyer who will be able to explain the legal process in detail.”
