When smaller vehicles and large trucks are involved in roadway accidents, it is often the individuals in the smaller automobiles that suffer significant injuries and losses. New Jersey residents familiar with the Bravo show, “Blood, Sweat and Heels,” may remember star, Melyssa Ford and may be shocked to learn that she was recently involved in a dangerous crash with a semi.
Ford was traveling on a freeway when a semi merged into her lane. The semi hit one of the back wheels of her sport utility vehicle and caused her vehicle to lose control. As a result of the collision Ford’s vehicle rolled over and left her with significant physical harm.
As a result of her ordeal Ford suffered a fracture to her skull, bleeding of the brain and other bruising and cuts. She was taken to the hospital to receive treatment for her significant harm and her condition is not known. She had to undergo surgery to close a nearly foot-long laceration to her face.
There is no doubt that Ford will be forever changed by her involvement in this crash and the apparent negligence of the semi driver. As she recuperates she, like other victims of damaging truck accidents, may begin to consider her legal options for recovering her accident-relate damages.
Victims of truck accidents can pursue their losses through personal injury-based lawsuits and be able to seek compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. Readers who have suffered losses similar to those suffered by Ford may want to investigate their possible roads to the recovery of their damages with the help of personal injury attorneys in their communities.
