Car and truck accidents come in a variety of forms. Typically, when we think of a wreck, we think of two or more vehicles colliding. While this is certainly the most common form of accident, it is not the only way that an injurious or fatal accident can occur. Pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents and even single-car crashes can prove devastating. In these instances, like in the aftermath of a wreck involving two or more vehicles, victims may be able to pursue a legal claim in hopes of recovering compensation for their damages.
