Why are Truck-Car Accidents So Devastating?

car and truck accident lawyer Munley LawAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 500,000 large trucks are involved in traffic accidents in the United States every year. Approximately 5,000 of these accidents involving tractor trailers result in fatalities. In fact, one of every eight traffic fatalities involves a collision with a large truck. Passengers in cars and smaller vehicles account for most of the deaths; truck drivers usually remain uninjured.

The average automobile weighs approximately 3,000 pounds, while a typical, fully-loaded large commercial truck can weigh 80,000 pounds or more. While statistics show that truck drivers are generally more careful on the road than other drivers, collisions caused by a trucker’s negligence can lead to the most catastrophic injuries on the road.

A truck-car accident can leave victims with long-term or even life-altering injuries. You may not be able to perform your job duties the way you used to. You may require months or years of medical treatment and therapy. A car-truck accident lawyer at Munley Law can help retrieve compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

What To Do If You Are In A Truck-Car Accident

If you have been in a car accident with a truck, follow these steps:

  • Do not sign anything given to you by an insurance company without consulting us, first. Insurance companies do not always represent your interests. Even if you’re badly injured, you may have to sue to obtain the money to which you are entitled.
  • Get appropriate medical treatment.  Take photographs of your visible injuries at the hospital, or when you get home.
  • Keep track of all expenses related to your injury, including prescription receipts, medical bills,  and therapy sessions.
  • Keep an ongoing, detailed list of all health care providers and facilities that you see to help you cope with your injuries.
  • Follow all treatment instructions and keep all scheduled appointments with your doctors and therapists to document your active cooperation with the healing and rehabilitation process.

Bobby Munley is an excellent attorney that does not let up in his fight in the courtroom. His knowledge was immeasurable. I went to him over an accident involving my vehicle where it was suspected it was my fault and in the end, he gave me freedom not only with a winning case, but also the freedom that came with knowing it was not my fault. He is fantastic! A Personal Injury Client

About 5 months ago, I had injured my back after lifting a heavy box at work. My employer refused to submit my claim even though the doctor had said the injury was caused by the action. I turned to Caroline Munley for help and I’m glad that I did. She walked me through filing my claim and helped me get the money to pay for my medical bills. I don’t know where I would be without her. Thank you, Ms. Munley! Lisa, a Workers’ Compensation Client
