When you are hurt in an accident involving a semi-truck, you might decide to seek compensation for your injuries. Seeking compensation for a semi-truck accident means filing a civil lawsuit; however, many cases are settled before you end up having to go through a trial. Many truck accident cases are handled through structured settlements. If you're offered an initial settlement offer or a subsequent offer that involves a structured settlement, you should consider the pros and cons of this type of arrangement.
One of the primary concerns when you are injured in a car accident is seeking medical care. The medical care you need after an accident is often a huge expense. If your injury was severe, your medical care bills will likely be even higher than if the injury was minor. While you are healing from the accident, you shouldn't have to worry about the financial aspects of the accident. We can help you to ensure that you get a fair settlement after your accident.
When you are in a car accident that was someone else's fault, one of your primary concerns might be getting the other person's insurance to cover the damages associated with the accident. There are some instances in which you might find that the other person didn't have insurance that can cover the cost of your injuries. The person might be underinsured or just not insured at all. It is critical for all drivers to have sufficient insurance coverage, but some people don't.
Trucker fatigue is a factor that can lead to trucking accidents. In an effort to ensure that truckers are getting enough sleep, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has set forth Hours of Operation regulations that detail the off-duty requirements for the trucking industry.
Motor vehicle accidents can be very serious, but motorcycle accidents have some risks that aren't usually associated with other motor vehicle accidents. The risk of being slammed onto the ground in an accident, being crushed by a motorcycle and having a car plow right into your body without protection are some of the risks that motorcycle riders face. Those risks can lead to serious injuries, including hip fractures.
