Life Changes After a Semi Truck Accident

When it comes to vehicles, there are a lot of them on the road. With the shear volume of traffic that populates our streets and interstates, accidents do happen. This is not new news. More than likely, you or someone you know has been in some kind of accident.

It is not often though that when we turn on the news, they are covering an accident unless it is a trucking accident. With a truck accident, the damage is usually terrifying. We have all heard the news reporting multiple car pile-ups on the interstate, almost always involving a semi truck.

The Truck Accident is not Always the Trucker’s Fault
As reported on, we hear the story of Mitchell Peebles. As a trucker, Mitchell knew the risks of driving such a large truck, but he never expected the danger of being a pedestrian. Mitchell was hit by another trucker as he was inspecting his load.

Mitchell suffered much from the truck accident including: permanent brain damage, loss of sight in one eye, post traumatic stress disorder and many other bodily injuries. In 2005, Mitchell’s life changed forever.

Importance of a Truck Accident Lawyer
Mitchell was hospitalized for an extended period of time and went through many hardships. It goes without saying that he couldn’t return to work. For four years he went without knowing if he would ever be financially stable again.

In August 2009, Mitchell was awarded $5.5 million. How would anyone be able to wait for four years before receiving any monetary compensation? The final result may give hope to those injured in a semi truck accident, but one still has to wonder if life will ever be the same again after such a traumatic experience.

Understanding Car Insurance Costs

Before buying a new car, you may want to consider all costs of owning a vehicle not just your monthly car payment. One of the biggest expenses associated with owning or leasing a car, besides the monthly car payment, is insurance. In some cases, insurance can cost as much or even more than your car payment.
