People who have never been in an accident with a large truck, tractor-trailer, or 18-wheeler may not really be able to understand the type of life-changing devastation that can occur in just a few seconds of time. Life-changing injuries and even death can easily occur because of a truck driver’s negligence. Furthermore, the pressures on truckers are immense. The tight deadlines and trucking schedules push them to drive when they should not, increasing the chances of accidents, and putting other drivers at risk. Despite that, if you are injured by a negligent or reckless truck driver, their insurers can often make you feel like you are being greedy if you want them to pay for your medical expenses, lost wages, and to help you make adjustments for any changes in your quality of life.
You may also be getting pressure from family members who just want you to return to normal as soon as possible after an accident. If they have not been injured, they may not understand that you may have to struggle to define a new normal. Depression, anxiety, pain, physical therapy, and lifelong injuries are all common results of a major accident with a truck, and it can take time and significant medical intervention to heal from those injuries, the visible ones and the invisible ones.
Unfortunately, if you are an accident victim, time may be one thing you do not feel like you have. While you are trying to heal, you may also be struggling to deal with a legal process that seems unfamiliar and complicated to you. You may not even understand the full extent of any injuries that you suffered, much less the lifelong financial impact that those injuries will have on you and your family, yet you may feel pressured to take a settlement because of mounting medical bills and lost wages. It does not take very long away from work for the average American to be faced with serious financial distress.
