How to Receive Compensation After an 18 Wheeler Accident

18 Wheeler CrashEvery year, there are estimated to be more than a quarter of a million large truck accidents throughout the country, including 18 wheelers. This estimation puts your chances of being injured in an 18 wheeler accident as quite high, whether as a passenger or a driver in another vehicle. Eighteen wheeler truck drivers are constantly under pressure to reach their destination without any delays so they may not take the required rest times while on the way. This means they can be a danger if they lose concentration due to fatigue or exceeding the speed limit in their rush to meet deadlines.

Fortunately, anyone who is injured in an accident with an 18 wheeler can file a personal injury claim against the person responsible for the injuries.
