Due to the size and weight of an 18-wheeler, severe personal injury can be caused in an accident with a big rig. Injuries, treatments and recovery of the victims involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler can be extensive. Many times, the victims require immediate medical assistance which may include expensive assistance like paramedics and transportation via ambulance or helicopter. Often, this is only the first step in a long road to recovery, which may include follow-up surgeries, doctor visits, physical therapy and other rehabilitation treatments.
In addition to high medical costs, big rig collisions can also cause a great deal of property damage.
