Accidents that involve semi-trucks are scary. Just last week, we discussed how serious jackknife accidents can be. If you think about those accidents and the considerations we discussed, you can see why they would be frightening. The initial shock of the accident is only one thing that you will have to deal with if you are struck by a semi-truck. We know that you might have a hard time thinking past the horror of the accident.
The emotional and mental trauma of being hit by a semi-truck is life-altering for some people. You might think that it is only a matter of time before you will be able to get your life back to normal. Sadly, some people who are struck by semi-trucks never get to that point. Instead, they live their life in fear that they will be hit again. This can make it difficult, if not impossible, to travel on roadways because semi-trucks are present on almost all roadways.
If you were struck by a semi-truck, you probably suffered from physical injuries. Those injuries will require medical care. Your emotional and mental injuries also need care, so you might have to enlist help from a mental health professional.
All of the care you need will come at a cost. When you opt to seek compensation, you are looking to get the money back that you had to spend on medical and mental health care. We don’t look for only the money you have already spent. If you will require care or therapy in the future, we must think about getting you the funds to pay for what you need in the future.
