According to the Eberstein & Witherite truck wreck attorneys serious accidents like Morgan’s happen to thousands of innocent people on the nation’s highways each year. Many victims are left with serious injuries that require weeks, months, or years, of medical treatment and rehabilitative care for recovery. Morgan was recently released from a rehab facility, where he spent a month getting treatment for the injuries he sustained in the accident.

The ABC News report also says that the complaint Morgan filed alleges the driver of the Walmart truck that hit him had not slept in over 24 hours leading up to the accident, and fell asleep while driving. When truck drivers commit these types of negligent acts, and it results in an accident, it is unfortunately often innocent victims who are impacted the most, say Eberstein & Witherite attorneys.
According to the truck wreck lawyers of the law firm of Eberstein & Witherite, Morgan’s case helps illustrate the legal options available for those who suffer serious injuries in a truck accident. It is important that truck accident victims hire a good law firm to investigate cases like this right away. Says attorney Amy Witherite, “A big retail chain like Walmart would have the resources to send a team out to investigate the crash site immediately. People who have been injured by the negligent acts of truckers need their own team of investigators who will also go to the site, inspect the 18 wheeler involved, and review log books and all electronic data pertaining to a case.”
Promptly filing a truck wreck lawsuit against truck drivers or the companies they work for can help one get the compensation they are due for any damages they are left with, including costs for medical care and rehabilitative treatment. Expenses in these cases are typically excessive and far beyond the scope of what victims can pay for out of pocket.
