Recovering Compensation After Truck And SUV Accidents

On any given day, while traveling to work or school or running errands with your family, it is likely that you will see various types of motor vehicles — cars, pickup trucks, SUVs, 18-wheelers, motorcycles, campers, delivery vans and more. Some of these vehicles are larger than others. If you were injured by a larger vehicle, such as a truck, tractor-trailer or SUV, it is likely that you sustained serious injuries.
