Legal Commentary

It is very unfortunate, and astonishing to believe that a driver operating such a large truck could be so careless as to leave an accident such as this one; uncertain of the injuries and damages the driver caused the victims. In this scenario, it is vital to report any and all information that the victims have of the semi truck who hit them. In addition to the misdemeanor charges the truck driver will face if caught, the victims should also pursue civil claims against the individual to cover the cost of damages to their vehicle, and to cover their medical bills, so that they are not burdened with out-of pockets expenses for an accident that they were not at fault for.
