Every year, large trucks in Kentucky and across the country are involved in hundreds of thousands of collisions. Data gathered from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that in 2012, large trucks were involved in 333,000 collisions. Over 3,900 people died in those collisions, and 88 fatal truck accidents occurred in Kentucky alone.
The ramifications of being injured in a truck accident may last long after you are released from the hospital. For many victims, it becomes impossible to work for some time, and the wages they lose are only made more of a serious issue by the fact that their medical bills continue to rise all the while. No matter what the circumstances of your truck accident injury were, legal action may be necessary to recoup its costs, and it is important to take the right approach when pursuing recompense.
