Any motor vehicle accident could result in a wrongful death. But motor vehicle accidents involving large commercial vehicles like big rigs, tankers, semi-tractor trailers, and other 18 wheelers are often more likely to be fatal because of the sheer size and weight of these box trucks and tankers, which generate significantly more momentum and force in an impact.
Unlike other motor vehicle collisions, individuals injured in 18-wheeler collisions involving a big rig or tractor-trailer need to take a very different approach to protect their rights to compensation. The first steps you take after a collision could be critical to protect your rights to compensation under the law.
After a motor vehicle accident, many victims ask whether they can handle the claim by themselves or if they should hire a lawyer.

Unfortunately, in today’s world, distracted driving tends to be the norm rather than the exception. And it only takes a second for a driver to not be paying full attention for something horrible and unintended to happen.
The law also allows you to recover non-economic damages for an accident. You likely suffered physical pain and mental anguish because of your injuries, and you are entitled to money to make up for that suffering. You can also get money for physical disfigurement you’ve suffered, like scars and burns, and for physical impairment, such as the loss of your ability to perform certain activities. Certain close family members like spouses can even recover money for their personal emotional suffering when a loved one is injured.
