Trucking crashes must be handled swiftly when there are injuries
Written By: Josh Lowell ~ 5/25/2018

When a semitruck slams into a passenger vehicle, the people in the vehicle will likely suffer from serious injuries. This is especially true if the accident occurs at interstate speeds. After the crash, anyone who was injured will need to seek medical care. This is important because victims need to ensure that any medical conditions for which they are being treated don't get worse.

There is another reason for seeking medical care right away — this can link the injuries that you suffered to the accident. Showing how the injuries, damages and crash are related is an important part of a personal injury claim that can arise from a semitruck crash.

We realize that this is a lot to think about when you are trying to recover from the injuries, but there are very strict time limits that come with these cases. While you don't have to get started the day after the crash, you should get your claim started quickly. The longer you wait, the longer it will be before you might be able to get financial relief.

There are many different things to think about when you are trying to determine the amount of your claim. Consider the past expenses that you've already covered, but look beyond that. You also have to look into what you might have to pay in the future. This is important because once you have a settlement or award, you can't come back and seek more money.

We can help you with every step of your case. From investigating why the trucker slammed into you up to ensuring that you have what is rightfully yours as part of the resolution, we will work with you.
