At Harrison Barnes, A Professional Law Corporation, our personal injury attorneys often witness the tragedies that result from a semi-truck crash with a car, truck, or sport utility vehicle. At higher speeds these collisions often cause serious bodily injury or death. Our attorneys are available to help victims of these collisions or family members of victims receive financial compensation for their injuries or for the loss of a loved one.
There are three parties that may be liable for a collision involving a car and a large truck: 1) the driver of the large truck, 2) the driver of the car, or 3) a third party. The passengers in the car may be entitled to financial compensation if the accident is caused by truck driver negligence, a problem with the truck, failure to properly maintain the truck, a defect in the roadway, or company negligence.
What are you entitled to as compensation? Financial compensation is awarded in the form of damages. As a victim in a personal injury claim, you may be awarded compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earnings, rehabilitation, emotional suffering, and other related expenses. As a client pursuing a wrongful death claim, you may be entitled to financial compensation for the loss of love, care, and companionship, medical expenses, anticipated future earnings, lost benefits, and funeral expenses.
When a large truck collides with a car, generally, the driver of the car is more seriously injured. Types of collisions between a truck and a car that result in a personal injury or wrongful death claim include a collision with a car and one of the following: a tractor-trailer, garbage truck, mail delivery truck, 18-wheeler, a semi-truck, a commercial truck, a truck carrying multiple cars, and a big-rig.
