Maryland Truck Accident Lawyer
You may try to get out of the way, but when an 18-wheeler crosses into your lane, runs a red light, or drives erratically, it may be impossible to avoid an accident. Trucks are generally larger and heavier than the vehicles they share the road with, our cars, minivans, and SUV’s. Sharing the road with large trucks places non-truck drivers at risk of serious injuries if they are involved in a truck accident. Unfortunately, as we are well aware, many people across Maryland are forced to deal with the consequences of truck accidents due to the negligent actions of truck drivers and trucking companies.
The good news is that, in many cases, these truck accident victims can get compensation to help them recover costs that the accident led to. This can help victims of such accidents get support they need and get their lives back.
Common outcomes of truck accidents include:
- Back injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Internal bleeding
- Bone fractures
- Facial lacerations and scarring
- Nerve damage
- Hand and wrist injuries
- Compression injuries.
With all these outcomes, the assistance of a dedicated attorney can greatly improve an accident victims’ ability to get the compensation they deserve.
