Common Outcomes of 18-Wheeler Accidents

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Wrecks involving 18-wheelers are much different than run-of-the-mill car accidents. This fact should come as no surprise, considering a typical 18-wheeler weighs 80,000 pounds, which is behemoth when considering the average car only weighs about 5,000 pounds.

Because of the sheer force of the weight behind these trucks, damage can be catastrophic and prosecuting the legal cases is much more complicated. Hiring an experienced attorney will give you the best chance of receiving adequate financial compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, and most importantly, injuries. Fatalities are not uncommon, and families are left behind in financial ruin, having to prosecute for wrongful death. The whole experience can be overwhelming.

Greater Devastation Leads to Bigger Settlements

Accidents involving cars and small trucks happen more often, but 18-wheeler wrecks are much more lethal. If there is a silver lining, payouts are usually commensurate with the damage done. While money is a very small consolation when you are seriously hurt or you are grieving the loss of a loved one, knowing that the at-fault party will substantially pay for their negligence can be heartening and protect the next innocent driver from the careless trucker.

Often your lawyer will be suing a company instead of an individual driver, and those payouts can be substantial. Consider that in May 2019, a jury in Texas awarded $80 million in damages to a truck driver who proved that the company that employed him forced him to change his logbook and work overtime, exceeding the federal limit for hours of service rules.

Lauro Lozano wound up falling asleep while driving and crashed into another big rig, crushing his pelvis and suffering trauma to his abdomen. Excessive medical expenses for such catastrophic injuries are just one reason settlements can balloon into the millions of dollars. Unfortunately, there are many other reasons as well.
Inability to Work and Loss of Income

Eighteen-wheeler accidents may result in permanent disability or a prolonged time away from the workplace. It is possible that the victim is completely unable to return to their previous profession. The inability to carry on with a chosen career often results in a larger settlement, including not only financial loss, but also mental anguish and sorrow at the loss of a beloved career.

More Property Damage

When colliding with these super-sized 18-wheelers, a regular car or truck is usually a total loss. That means the driver is often entitled to the entire Blue Book value of the vehicle.

Pain and Suffering

The insurmountable fear of being run off the road or getting into a collision with a huge truck can lead to unspeakable physical as well as emotional distress, including post-traumatic stress disorder. The judge will take into account the impact on daily life activities when calculating the amount to be paid.

Extensive injuries are almost always the outcome of large vehicle wrecks:

Traumatic brain injury
Wrongful death
Internal bleeding
Loss of limbs or amputation
Herniated disc
Severe lacerations
Blunt force trauma

If 18-wheeler accidents sound like your worst nightmare, you're not alone. Every day, we see victims that feel hopeless and helpless when confronting the large insurance companies hired by trucking companies. But don't be bullied.

Understanding and applying the law to these complex cases is what a truck accident law firm specializes in. In many cases, with time and patience and the right legal counsel, complete resolution and satisfactory financial recoveries are achieved. Tragic 18-wheeler accidents can, and often do, result in positive outcomes.

Could rabbit meat become acceptable as alternative to pork, chicken and beef?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Is eating rabbit like eating your dog? Both of them our currently mostly our households pets. There are not too many breeders that raise them like chickens...yet. Should we eat alternative food like, fish, soya and others instead of rabbit? Or is it time for the Philippines to grow their rabbitry business?

It's still a long way to go for the Philippines. Should the government consider cultivating the rabbit meat industry?

Rabbit meat is one of the healthiest, leanest, and most environmentally friendly meats you can eat. Compared to beef, pork, lamb, turkey, veal, and chicken, a rabbit has the highest percentage of protein, the lowest percentage of fat, and the fewest calories per pound. The Italians and French eat rabbit the way Americans eat chicken, which is to say, quite often. Rabbit meat is tender, lean, delicious and as versatile as chicken, to which it can also be compared in taste.

They are far less fragile than pigs, and their numbers can grow fast, hence the expressions multiply like rabbits, and f**k like bunnies. It may be expensive NOW but with wide acceptance and an increased supply, the price will eventually drop to a reasonable level.

Government support is vital for this industry to take off. the rabbit's great potential to feed us is drowned by abounding misconceptions among the masses.

It is viable as rabbits multiply incredibly fast. You need a wider space for raising rabbits, though to accomodate their growing population. DA must provide training as rabbits tend to attract a variety of predators, and a host of other issues. In time, we shall see Filipinos eating rabbits. Hindi kelangan magmahal. Eh, lintek, pagkain lng ng mahihirap yan sa Europe at Australia.

At the moment rabbit is much expensive than pork. One small rabbit is sold 500-1k and not even reach 1kilo in weight. But hopefully soon it will become more affordable and competitive when acceptance and demand rise. It won't be pricey if there's enough to go around with. If They can breed chickens why not rabbits also but don't know if it's cost effective anti chicken. Better eat corrupt politicians! 100 % clean life style and eating the best feeds but not enough for the majority! Hahahaha Bon appetite.

It is a very common food in countries like Italy, tasty.. I don't understand the stigma for the rabbit here in the Philippines.
