Commercial vehicle wrecks are one of the most common causes of death in the United States and our State of Arkansas. When I talk to members of my community, people are astonished to find out that many of the wrecks our clients are involved in happen right here in Northwest Arkansas. The fact is that around 415,000 large truck wrecks occurred in one year in the most recent statistics produced by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This false sense of security; this feeling of, “That could never happen to me.” leaves a huge hole in people’s plans of action.
What would you do if you were hit by an 18-wheeler? Who would you call? Who would you talk to? How would you handle phone calls from insurance companies while you’re still trying to get better? How would you handle phone calls and postcards from lawyers promising quick cash?
This book is intended to not only answer all of those questions, but to also be a step-by-step guide for people who have been hit by a commercial vehicle. Without knowing what to do, you leave yourself open to being taken advantage of. Take the advice provided in this book, and formulate your own plan of action to protect your rights.
