Commentary on 18-wheeler Accident on US 23 in Livingston County
A common mistake I come across is folks see something they think is straight-forward and therefore assume it won't be too difficult getting folks the help they deserve. In reality, any crash involving a commercial truck is likely to involve inherent challenges the average person is not equipped to handle on their own. A big reason for this is that trucking companies go to great lengths to minimize their responsibility. Some of these tactics stoop to serious depths, which is why anticipating those challenges and having the tools and allies to overcome them is crucial for victims and families. I don't see why this crash would be an exception to that. I explain some of those potential challenges and how to approach them in the article below.
