If you have been hurt in a crash involving a truck, you can recover money for your losses from the at-fault driver and their insurer. But if the crash is particularly complex, or you have sustained serious injuries, a lawyer could help level the playing field and get you the compensation you deserve.

The money you receive from your settlement will be based on the financial strain your injuries caused and may include things like medical expenses, physical therapy and lost wages.
