Truck accidents can result in catastrophic injury, permanent disability or even death. Due to the large size of semi-trucks, victims in cars or smaller vehicles are at risk for severe injuries when involved in an accident because of the weight of the truck and tremendous impact. Victims could require extensive rehabilitation for their injuries that extend over many months or even years. Furthermore, truck accident cases tend to be more complex than other auto accidents because of the number of third parties involved. For example, the semi-truck cab and the truck trailer could easily have separate owners which results in different legal responsibilities and insurance companies.
