Tractor-Trailer Accidents in Jackson County
After a tractor-trailer accident, many victims face a long road to recovery. This includes rigorous physical rehabilitation and continuing medical treatments. Their medical bills will steadily grow, as will any associated damages like missed wages from being unable to work.
Regrettably, a lot of victims in this situation panic. They agree to the first settlement offer the insurance company proposes without considering their future. They don’t know the full scope of their medical expenses or even the full extent of their injuries. This leaves them to pay for everything else out of pocket.
