Each year, a surprising number of people are involved in accidents involving a large truck. In Houston, Texas, and around the country, these crashes may result in a myriad of hardships for those involved, such as loss of life, serious injuries and emotional trauma. However, the financial ramifications of a truck accident can be overwhelming and at Grimes & Fertitta, P.C., we support truck accident victims who are having difficulty paying their bills.
After a truck accident, victims may encounter many challenges and have no idea of what to do next. After all, negative emotions such as depression or anger, physical pain and dealing with an insurance company are just a few examples of hardships people in this position frequently endure. Unfortunately, people sometimes experience financial problems that make daily life even more complicated. After a truck crash, victims may be unable to cover hospital bills or the cost of physical therapy. Additionally, some are not able to work and end up losing wages they were counting on to pay their mortgage, rent, phone bill or any other expense. Whenever a truck accident victim experiences these challenges, they should immediately try to determine whether or not they can gain access to benefits that will help them.
If you were hurt in a truck accident that has caused financial devastation, it is essential to understand your options and attempt to recover physically, emotionally and financially. If a negligent truck driver caused the crash, you may want to think about taking legal action. On our auto accidents page, you can read more on moving forward from a truck crash.
