Over the course of 2014, more than 3,900 large trucks were involved in a fatal accident, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Even if a large truck accident does not result in the loss of your life, you may be seriously injured and face a long road to recovery which includes other challenges. In New London, and cities across Connecticut, a truck wreck may also cause emotional and financial suffering (such as funeral expenses) for your family. At Beebe and O'Neil, we know all too well how devastating these collisions can be and the multitude of hardships they often bring.
Truck accident injuries can lead to a wide variety of problems that interrupt your life in different ways. For example, an injury may prevent you from being able to fulfill your job responsibilities, resulting in lost wages. Other injury-related financial difficulties include rehabilitation, damage to your property and medical costs. In order to recover from the accident, you should focus on restoring a sense of financial normalcy and look into any benefits you may be entitled to.
Physically recovering from a crash may take months or even years and some people are never able to fully recover. If you are hit by a truck, you may have permanent mental trauma that affects your ability to drive. If you are dealing with any of these issues, it is crucial to do everything in your power to move forward from the accident that turned your life upside down.
