Brain injuries as a result of commercial vehicle accidents

On Behalf of | Oct 16, 2016 | Commercial Vehicle Accidents, Firm News

Commercial vehicles are found on highways and roads alongside drivers every day. These vehicles might be involved in accidents that may result in serious injuries, such as head and brain injuries. Common commercial vehicles include delivery trucks and vans utilized for transport purposes.

Speeding commercial vehicles may endanger the lives of passengers as well as pedestrians. Certain injuries such as critical head injuries may result in pain and permanent disability. Even due to minor negligence on the part of the commercial vehicle driver, the victim may endure critical injuries that may affect cognitive abilities. It may also lead to loss of wages for the sick days taken by the victim to recover and heal.

A victim of a commercial vehicle accident might be able to receive compensation for the medical expenses and lost wages from the commercial vehicle’s owner. The injuries might be a result of bus or van driver fatigue or an inattentive driver. They may also be caused by faulty motor parts installed by a negligent company. While the compensation will not take away the pain and trauma caused by the accident, it might help you get back on your feet till you recover completely.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a negligent driver, then you may benefit by contacting a skilled attorney. A lawyer may be able to help you receive the proper compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. Commercial vehicle drivers are entrusted with the lives of passengers and should not be negligent while driving.
