Birmingham 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers
Drivers of 18-wheeler commercial trucks are held to a higher standard on the road than are drivers of passenger vehicles. Still, as anyone who has driven past a jackknifed tractor-trailer well knows, these vehicles still get in accidents that can cause enormous property or bodily damage, including spinal injuries, head injuries, accidental amputations or even death. If you’re a commercial driver who has been involved in an accident, your injuries may be substantial, even requiring you to step away from your job while you recover. You may be eligible to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, depending on the details of your accident. These benefits can pay, up to a certain limit, for accident-related expenses, including:
- Medical bills
- Temporary and permanent disability benefits
- Lost wages
- Job retraining (where necessary)
Furthermore, if a third party contributed to your accident — for example, another driver or faulty equipment on your truck — an attorney may be able to file a second lawsuit against the responsible party.
