The front of Richardson’s truck was crushed, and he would ultimately have to be extricated by emergency personnel who responded to the accident.

Can I Sue For Being in a Truck Accident?

Bobby Thompson, an experienced truck accident attorney, has dedicated his professional career to fighting for injury victim’s rights. He understands how traumatizing it can be when a loved one is injured or killed in an automotive accident involving a truck. In researching this news event, I reached out to him for comment on how victims can seek compensation.

Mr. Thompson explained, “Most people understand that car accidents occur 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 to property as well as the physical injuries can be much more severe.”

He continued, “Insurance policies can often cover some of the damages suffered by victims, but all policies have a limit and when this limit 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.”
