Pedestrians and Cyclists Hit by Trucks

18-Wheeler Crash Lawyers Dedicated to Assisting Victims in Memphis

Any time that a pedestrian or cyclist is involved in a motor vehicle accident, the potential exists for the victim to sustain serious, life-altering injuries. This is especially true for the unfortunate pedestrian or cyclist who finds themselves the victim of a truck accident. Semi-trailers, also known as tractor-trailers or 18-wheelers, carry with them enough size and weight to seriously injure even other drivers, who at least have the protection of their vehicle and its various safety features. For pedestrians and cyclists hit by trucks, the results can be fairly catastrophic. In a larger city, the risk of being involved in a truck accident is too great to ignore. That is why our Memphis truck accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz are ready and willing to listen to the facts of your situation and help point you in the right direction. We are the largest personal injury law firm based in Tennessee, and we have been serving accident victims in Shelby County for over 30 years.

Asserting Your Rights After Being Hit by a Large Truck

When trucks collide with pedestrians and cyclists, it is very likely that serious injuries, like broken bones, head injuries, or some form of paralysis, will result. Where serious injuries occur, huge medical bills always follow. Depending on the type of injury you have suffered – be it broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, severe burns, amputations, etc. – there could also be permanent effects that will require continual care well into the future, causing you to incur even greater medical expenses over the following years for surgeries, home health care, and the like. Of course, pedestrians and cyclists hit by trucks will likely also have lost income from time missed at work, and the seriousness of those injuries may prevent you from being able to work in the future. Furthermore, it is common in cases involving serious, catastrophic injuries to see the extent of the injuries and required care take a toll on the family members of the injured person. This can lead to stressed relationships and lost companionship.

Fortunately for those pedestrians and cyclists who have been involved in truck accidents in Memphis, all of the above losses, and more, are elements of damages under Tennessee law. However, you will need the help of an attorney experienced in handling pedestrian and cyclist cases involving serious injury to ensure that you understand all of the forms of compensation to which you may be entitled. You will also need someone there who has the skill to argue on your behalf to maximize the amount of your compensation by satisfying the relevant burden of proof.
