What Legal Rights Do Bus And Truck Accident Victims Have?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has commented on the legal rights available to bus and truck accident victims:

“It’s no secret that buses and trucks are large, powerful vehicles that can cause a lot of damage when they crash. Those involved in these accidents frequently sustain serious injuries such as:

  • head trauma
  • spinal damage
  • amputation
  • broken bones
  • nerve damage
  • crush injuries

These injuries are very expensive to treat and auto insurance policies don’t always cover the full cost of treatment once the policy limits are met. So how do auto accident victims afford their medical care?

Bus and truck accident lawsuits are typically the only way to fully recover the necessary compensation that will pay for medical bills and lost wages. Additional compensation can be obtained to pay for non-monetary losses such as emotional suffering and physical pain.

Working with an experienced attorney is vitally important. Not every attorney practices auto accident law which can be complex. If you or a loved one have been hurt in a truck accident be sure to ask any potential legal team about their past successes and ask to speak with former clients who can provide a reference. ”
