Personal injury damages are important for victims who have been injured in a car or other type of accident to be familiar with. Different damages may be available to victims depending on the circumstances but are generally intended to help them with the losses and damages they have suffered as a result of a car accident.
Distractions on the road cause many accidents in the United States. There has been a surge in deadly crashes in the last few years, and many people point to smartphones as the reason why. While other dangers have traditionally trended downward -- like drunk driving -- distractions have only become more common as the smartphone influence has spread.
Truck accidents can be devastating for victims simply because of the size of trucks alone and the damages they can cause. This is because, when fully loaded, commercial trucks can weight as much as 80,000 pounds. Many passenger vehicles weigh around 4,000 pounds which means that a collision with a semi-truck can cause catastrophic harm to victims.
