Getting into an accident with a commercial semi-truck can be devastating. This is because the size of a semi-truck likely dwarfs your car, since they are almost consistently the largest vehicles on the road. Because of the size of the car and severity of the impact, you may be left facing some permanent issues.

Potential physical issues are one of the first concerns that you might have. If you have been in a severe accident with a semi-truck, then you may also be facing severe damage. Physical damage from accidents can include things like broken or shattered bones, torn ligaments, and punctured organs. In more severe cases, it can include permanent disabilities. You may be facing a lifetime of limited mobility, or debilitating and painful injuries that will never fully heal.

If you are facing something like that, you will also be facing a hefty medical cost. You may not be able to cover these costs yourself, especially if you have needed to take time off of work in order to recover. This is why you may wish to file a lawsuit against the trucking company. If you are able to prove the trucking company at fault for your accident, you will be able to pursue medical compensation which may help you foot any bills you may have for medicines, surgeries and so on.
