North Carolina businesses and consumers count on semitrucks to bring in goods and to ship others out of the state. These large trucks are vital to the economy, but they can also be dangerous weapons when they aren’t driven in a safe manner. Innocent men, women and children can be injured or killed when a semitruck is involved in an accident.
We recognize that most truck drivers are safe, but there are sometimes other drivers on the road who aren’t. Unfortunately, the safe drivers aren’t able to control the others on the road. This is one of the reasons why crashes occur.
The victims of a semitruck crash might consider themselves lucky to have survived. It is imperative that if you are injured in a big rig crash that you don’t admit any type of fault in the accident. Don’t make claims that you are sorry for what happened. Instead, speak only factual statements about the crash that don’t assign any liability to you.
We know that getting medical care is likely a priority for you right now. This is understandable, but when you have that taken care of, it is time to turn your attention to the financial devastation that might be just around the corner.
The medical care you receive, the time you have to miss from work and the other things you have to manage because of the accident aren’t free. This is why you might want to seek compensation. The case could hold the liable party accountable for the monetary impact that these crashes have on innocent parties.
