Commercial truck accidents can be devastating. Due to the large size of 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, delivery trucks and other commercial vehicles, people traveling in smaller vehicles often sustain serious injuries or fatalities in accidents involving large trucks. A driver or passenger in a smaller vehicle struck by a large truck often will be taken from the scene by ambulance, while the truck driver in many cases will walk away without a scratch.
Knowing what to do after a truck accident can be overwhelming. Whether you or a loved one was injured in a tractor-trailer crash on I-80, I-76, I-77 or another major highway in Ohio or western Pennsylvania, you will need to address your injury or wrongful death claim immediately. Understandably, you probably just want to focus on your physical recovery after your crash.
