Comprehensive List of Truck Accident Resources

truck accident resources

Everything you need for physical, emotional, and financial security following a truck accident

Need a support group? Want to talk with others who’ve experienced a traumatic injury like yours? Looking to connect with disabled people in your local community? Interested in cutting-edge medical technology and treatment for your injury? Searching for a job that works for you with a disability? Here’s how to find all of that and more.

A truck accident is often more serious than one between passenger cars. You’re more likely to suffer severe injuries and require long-term treatment.

It can be hard to know where to turn after a truck accident. Your lawyer will be looking at the legal aspects to your case—like who’s at fault, who the parties are in a truck accident, how the accident happened, and how much your case is worth.

The first task is to get your physical recovery underway. Fortunately, there are a lot of organizations that can help provide resources and support for your injuries. While you might be able to find more resources in your local community or state, below we’ve provided a list of national organizations that are ready to help.

Traumatic brain injury resources

If your accident resulted in a traumatic brain injury (TBI), or if you’re a caregiver for someone with a TBI, you’re not alone. Learning from others, taking the advice of professionals, and seeking comfort and support from others who’ve been through similar experiences can be very valuable. Start with these resources:

Spinal cord injury resources

If you suffered a spinal cord injury, there are a variety of resources available. Each of the organizations listed below includes local chapter contact information, support suggestions or groups, tips for living with a spinal cord injury, and information to learn more about your injury and potential treatments and services.

Financial resources for people with disabilities

“Disability” can mean a lot of different things, and you might require resources for anything from acquiring a service animal to modifying your vehicle to accommodate your transportation needs.

One of the most daunting aspects to a newly acquired disability is determining how to cover the costs associated with the disability, and how you’re going to make ends meet financially.

Your best resource for solving financial challenges after a truck accident is your personal injury lawyer. But if you want to do some research on your own, here’s a good way to begin:

Finding a truck accident lawyer

Although Social Security and other disability benefits might be a big help following a truck accident, they might not be enough to fully secure your financial future. Those benefits might cover the basics of your day-to-day life, but they won’t help you to replace everything you’ve lost.

For example, any government benefits you receive will never compensate you for pain and suffering associated with the kind of severe injuries that you might have from a truck accident, or the kind of pain and suffering you experience from the loss of a loved one.

Enjuris tip: A truck accident is different from a car accident. Commercial trucks are subject to regulations and rules that are specific to their weight, cargo loads, and other factors. Drivers need to have a special license, and trucking companies have requirements that need to be met every time a truck goes on the road.

Most people can’t navigate the intricacies of a truck accident because there are so many companies involved and unfamiliar laws and regulations. But it’s your personal injury lawyer’s job to understand those aspects to a case and make sure that everyone’s participating who needs to be.

To learn about what you really deserve after a serious truck accident, you need to consult with a personal injury lawyer. The Enjuris Personal Injury Law Firm Directory is where you can find a lawyer in your state who’s experienced, compassionate, and ready to take on your case.
