Truck Accident Injuries Caused by Speeding in WV
Nearly 4,000 innocent lives are lost each year as a result of gruesome collisions involving massive commercial trucks barreling through traffic at a high rate of speed – and losing control. In almost all cases, the terrifying accidents involving these large commercial trucks versus passenger vehicles result in either significant injuries or death for those in the smaller automobile. With speeding or driving too fast for conditions added to the situation, injuries tend to be more severe and are often life-threatening. From severe head trauma, traumatic brain injury, blunt force trauma, crushed internal organs, and broken/splintered bones to paralysis and death, these injuries often cause accident survivors a lifetime of untold suffering and pain. If speeding was a factor in causing your injuries, Angotti & Straface will hold the tractor-trailer or commercial truck driver fully accountable for his role.
Unsafe Big Truck Braking Causes Serious Injury and Death
Huge commercial tractor trailers can require nearly 600 feet to come to a complete stop. This is almost 3 times the length required by a passenger car and longer than a standard football field. These big, heavy trucks have the potential to be the most dangerous vehicles on our highways and have been responsible for 72% of traffic fatalities. Although there are often several factors involved in causing auto accidents, a driver’s poor braking ability is a frequent cause of serious trucking accidents. When combined with tailgating, evasive steering overcompensation, poor mechanical condition, impaired driving, or fatigue, the consequences are all too often tragic.
Financial Compensation for Mental Devastation After Truck Accidents
Emotional recovery from a traumatic encounter with a speeding, out-of-control tractor-trailer and the consequences of reckless driving can take years. Some victims never recover. Aside from serious physical injuries and property damage, the psychological toll of a major accident with a commercial truck can be absolutely devastating. Many victims suffer from crippling nightmares, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Some are never able to get behind the wheel of a car again. From the impacts on family and social life to job loss and financial ruin, the emotional impact is real. At Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law, we fight for every penny you are entitled to receive for all of your losses, including financial losses, pain, suffering, and emotional devastation. In cases involving particularly aggressive road rage or other malicious intent with disregard for human life, recovery of additional damages may be possible. Depending on the exact circumstances of the accident, punitive damages may be awarded in addition to other compensation.
We Hold All Liable Parties Accountable for Reckless Driving
While financial recovery for losses from accidents involving passenger vehicles can be complicated, recovery involving reckless drivers of commercial trucks can rapidly become immensely complex. When you are injured in an accident involving reckless driving, the driver, his trucking company, the vehicle manufacturer (in cases involving defective parts), and loaders, as well as attorneys and insurance companies for each party may be involved.
You deserve access to the maximum possible compensation for your injuries. Therefore you must choose an attorney with proven capability to identify and hold all liable parties accountable. Since 1952, Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law has worked to secure the maximum possible compensation allowed by law for our clients’ personal injury claims throughout West Virginia. There are no attorney fees for personal injury cases unless we secure compensation on your behalf. Call now to request your free initial consultation: 304-292-4381.
