Protecting Victims of Truck Accidents in Central and Eastern Kentucky
18-wheelers and other large trucks may be essential to keeping our nation’s economy going, but they can be an intimidating presence on the road for drivers of smaller vehicles. Their momentum alone makes them very dangerous, but other factors are even more troubling. It’s no secret that some truck drivers habitually forgo food or sleep or use amphetamines in order to log more driving hours. This negligence can have catastrophic and even fatal consequences for other vehicle operators. If you have been seriously injured in an accident involving an 18-wheeler or other large truck, you should speak to a dedicated truck accident attorney to get help with filing a claim and protecting your rights.

Giving Victims of Truck Accidents a Fighting Chance
During the claims process, you can expect to demonstrate that a truck driver’s negligence or misconduct caused the accident in which you were injured. Even under the best of circumstances, this is not easy to do. You will need to collect evidence, talk to witnesses, solicit the aid of experts such as physicians and accident reconstructors and document everything according to the letter of the law in order to make your case. This can be a daunting task for someone who has never filed a personal injury claim. Fortunately, you don’t need to take on big trucking companies and their insurers on your own.
