Catastrophic Injuries Require A Knowledgeable Attorney
Many people who are harmed are fortunate to escape severe or long-term injuries, but, unfortunately, that is not the case for everyone. Some injuries involve significant internal and external physical trauma, and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are some of the most difficult to diagnose because of the complexity of the brain. Many lawyers do not understand the science and biology behind these types of injuries and the various factors that can go into aggravating these conditions. Because of this, many victims can struggle to find effective counsel to help them get the compensation that they are entitled to.

Severe Injuries Are Often Present In A Trucking Accident
There are many types of catastrophic injuries that can result from being involved in a severe accident. Whether you have been struck by an 18-wheeler, a semi truck, a box truck or a large commercial vehicle, the force of the impact can easily cause significant injuries such as a traumatic brain injury or severe damage to other parts of your body. No matter if it is a head-on collision or a sideswipe, truck crashes are some of the most dangerous – and, oftentimes, fatal – that occur on the road due to a negligent driver, faulty equipment or other factor.

Even in unfortunate cases of litigating for the losses of a loved ones, this evidence may prove crucial to identifying how they passed.
Fighting To Ensure Liability For Injuries
Assigning liability can be difficult with a catastrophic injury, especially in a trucking accident, because there are many factors that need to be reviewed in order to determine which parties are involved and how they are at fault. Trucking and insurance companies will often do everything they can to fight liability and avoid exposure for the wreck. They will employ many tactics, such as offering quick settlements for less then what you may be entitled to; and using expert witnesses to downplay injuries.
