Cars traveling on busy Orlando streets or highways run the risk of being side swiped by large semi-trucks. These accidents can occur when a semi truck driver drifts into the lane of a car or makes an improper turn cutting off the lane of a car.
This is often due to a lapse of attention, intoxication, or negligence in driving. Side swipe accidents can cause extensive damage to cars and property and can put cars in position to be in additional accidents. They can cause injuries to the neck, back, shoulders, limbs, knees, head and torso. If you are a passenger or driver of a car struck by a semi truck it is important that you seek medical attention immediately should any symptoms begin after such an accident.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a car accident, you may be eligible to recover damages including pain and suffering, mental anguish, medical bills, lost wages, and more.
