What commercial truck accident victims need to do after a serious or fatal collision in Louisville

As the highways and roads of Louisville get more crowded with commercial traffic, the number of trucking accidents increases. Trucking crashes typically result in very serious or fatal injuries to victims who have no chance against a truck's size and weight.

After a truck accident, it is crucial for the victim to quickly learn about their rights and options, as they move toward recovery and must deal with medical bills, lost wages, and potentially permanent injuries. Commercial trucking accidents are complicated and need to be investigated immediately, before vehicles are repaired, and evidence and witnesses disappear. When a crash is fatal, family members must get information on insurance claims, to begin the healing process.
