The Dangers of Trucking Accident Collisions

Automobile accidents and motor vehicle collisions are dangerous and can pose grave threats to one’s health, both physically and emotionally. The trauma upon impact can be fatal. This is especially true in accidents involving big rigs and large trucks. The weight and force of impact can be much greater than between two small compact cars.

In fact, accidents involving big trucks and rigs have a higher probability of flipping the other car or causing immediate damage and harm. Individual drivers and passengers have been known to sustain injuries ranging from burns, broken bones, amputation, paralysis, spinal cord damage and more. In the worst of cases, passengers and drivers of both vehicles may have been killed upon impact, giving rise to a potential wrongful death claim.

We provide funding and cash resources to our clients. We offer immediate review and analysis of your case to let you know if you qualify for pre-settlement lawsuit funding which is like a lawsuit loan but does not need to be repaid if the case loses.

Types of Injuries Covered by Cash Funding

High Rise Financial provides cash funding for your lawsuit or legal case which involves personal injuries such as brain injuries, broken bones, amputations, paralysis, burn injuries, spinal cord damage, back pain and more. Depending on the circumstance and scenario of your personal injury accident, and liability against the at-fault defendant, you may be eligible for cash pre-settlement funding. Such legal funding is similar to a lawsuit loan but it is distinct in that the cash advanced need only be repaid if your case settles and if you are successful.

You can continue to obtain medical treatment and necessary surgeries, pay for your living expenses and bills all while your attorney continues to prosecute your case on your behalf for the best possible financial settlement.

Can I Sue for Pain and Suffering?

A victim of any personal injury accident can generally sue for pain and suffering money damages. Of course, the amount that will be considered or awarded is directly dependent on the severity of their injuries and the significant of the incident. Someone that trips and scrapes their knee does not have the same allocation for pain and suffering as someone who suffered third degree burns as a result of a defective product which would fall under product liability.

These distinctions are key. Almost every type of case qualifies for pain and suffering, with one exception: that is worker’s compensation claims. If you were injured in an accident while at work for your employer- then you cannot sue your employer for pain, suffering or disability.

What types of Accidents and Injuries Qualify for Pain and Suffering Damages?

Car accidents, medical malpractice cases, pedestrian accidents, slip and falls, product liability, dog bites, construction accidents, nursing home negligence, defective medical devices and other similar cases qualifies for pain and suffering damages. Injuries that would have a high dollar or monetary value on it for pain and suffering would probably include burn injuries, orthopedic injuries, spinal cord injuries or severe injuries to the brain, any type of injury requiring surgery to recover, as well as broken bones and fractures, amputations, and paralysis (paraplegia and quadraplegia).

Minor or less severe injuries would still warrant some compensation for pain and suffering- because even if you did not fall through a skylight on a construction job- you still had some suffering as a result of that rear-ended car accident (even with minor property damage). Leave it to your attorney to fight for you to obtain as much of a recovery as possible for your injuries, treatment and the impact of the accident on your life and well-being.

Consequences of Trucking Accidents

Automobile collisions are bad enough between two regular sized vehicles, but when a bigger, heavier truck is involved, it could be so much worse. There is usually more physical injury as a result and significant vehicle damage. With it, comes time off work to receive treatment and re cover while the bills mount and need to be considered. Bills can include medical costs from injuries and regular things like water and power, which can go unpaid when the accident victim misses work and doesn’t have enough money to cover his or her expenses.

While legal accidents can lead to compensation, a settlement is usually not reached right away. Some people turn to a cash advance for lawsuit to meet their immediate needs.

Accident Statistics

With about 11 million big trucks and tractor trailers travelling millions of miles on U.S. roadways annually, accidents are bound to happen. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, of the roughly 45,000 annual traffic deaths, less than nine percent involve commercial vehicles. For 2015, that translated to 4,311 big trucks and buses involved in fatal traffic crashes, which is an increase over previous years. While this shows that the bulk of vehicle collisions don’t involve large trucks, it’s still a sobering statistic.

All those involved in these crashes still deal with the aftermath, physical injury, financial damages, lost wages, medical expenses and other issues. That is why lawsuit financing is so helpful. People don’t have to stress about not having the money to buy groceries or about the lights being turned off. What a lawsuit loan does is help people rehabilitate and recover from their accident injury, while maintaining their life’s financial responsibilities. In the meantime, their attorney seeks compensation from the defendant’s insurance company as a result of the trucking accident.
