The two victims traveling in the car and who have yet to be identified were taken to Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, PA. The latest updates indicate that one of them succumbed to their injuries.

Laurence Banville, an experienced truck accident attorney, shared the following information for victims of truck crashes who are considering all of their legal options:

“While vehicular collisions occur every single day across the country, it has been widely noted that those involving truck, semi-trucks, or even tractor-trailers are often the most lethal.

This may not be surprising when one considers how massive these trucks tend to be, and how they’re made even more dangerous by the heavy payloads they carry.

Victims of truck accidents can suffer severe injuries, and this is in the instances when they’re lucky to survive the incident. Types of injuries can include head trauma, spinal injuries, nerve damage, fractures and worse.

Unfortunately, these types of injuries are usually life-altering, changing the lives of victims and their family members forever. The treatments can be extremely costly, especially when one considers that medical care will have to be ongoing through their life, and therapy may even last for years.

The average American family simply does not possess the means to cover these costs. This is why the law provides another path for them: a truck accident lawsuit.

By filing a truck accident lawsuit, victims have the possibility of obtaining a compensation that takes into account past, current, and future medical expenses resulting from the accident. In some cases, it can also cover lost wages or even funeral/burial costs if a victim was killed by the accident.

All cases are different, as is the compensation that can be achieved, which is why victims who suffered injuries in truck crashes should contact an experienced legal counsel who may explain all of their options in detail and then fight aggressively to get justice.”
