The worst accidents are often the result of larger vehicles going the wrong way. Be it a train accident, a bus accident or a mishap caused by an 18-wheeler, the extent of inflicted physical damage is obviously greater than the one caused by smaller vehicles. This is why there is a strong and growing demand for lawyers who are competent in handling accident cases attributed to trucks, 18-wheelers, buses and so forth.

The attorneys well versed in personal injury cases are likely to sort out the issues dealing with another person’s negligence or mistake. Though there is little difference in the nature of physical injuries inflicted by a car, motorcycle, bus or truck accident, the ways of dealing with their compensation claims is quite different. For instance, the actual difference in the case of a general auto accident and the one caused by an 18-wheeler exists in the severity of injuries inflicted on the victims.

In most cases, general car accidents would result in neck or whiplash injuries that lead to severe soft tissue pain that may lessen with time. On the other hand, an 18-wheeler accident may cause grave damages to the victim’s vehicle along with inflicting severe physical injuries that may lead to closed head injuries, fractures, herniated discs, or untimely deaths. In other words, a typical car accident is unlikely to cause very serious injuries and thus has a lower insurance coverage than the claim possible for accidents caused by 18-wheelers or larger vehicles. This makes a lot of sense as the probability of death in case of accidents involving larger vehicles is much higher than that in case of smaller cars and motorcycles.




While a simple whiplash injury may render the involvement of an attorney fruitless, a more serious kind of injury would surely require the intervention of a lawyer for filing rightful claims with the concerned authorities. In case you have suffered injuries because of an accident linked to an 18-wheeler, it would be wise to get in touch with an experienced attorney who can handle your compensation claim to perfection.

These days, almost all reputed firms dealing with personal injury cases are known to take up 18-wheeler accident claims for injuries as well. Lawyers having adequate knowledge of this sub specialty field assess the severity of injuries before agreeing to take up the case. In general, reliable accident law firms readily accept cases that are a result of 18-wheelers buses, trucks and other large-sized vehicles.



In more fortunate cases, the victims are pleasantly surprised upon receiving deserving compensation from their insurance companies; however, such instances are not very common. The bill issued by the health insurance companies may be higher or lower than the settlement amount. If the amount is lower than the expected or real-time expenses of hospitalization and medical treatment, then further attempts for renegotiation can be made with the help of a dedicated 18-wheeler accident claim lawyer.


Are you ready to hire a good lawyer for your 18-wheeler accident case today?

Some lucky humans were blessed with the social confidence that others can only dream of. These divine individuals can text anyone--their crush, friend, boss, ex, you name it--without feeling nervous. How do these demigods face those three evil dots which signal an incoming response with such blatant disinterest? It's as if they know the response will be in their favor! Either that or they are so utterly courageous that even the possibility of rejection fails to strike fear into their hearts. Whatever magic these bold humans use, not everyone is as lucky. Here are some things that those without texting anxiety just won't understand:

1. Over analyzing punctuation and phrasing.

Via College Humor

I hear Ye Old Cafe has an awesome lunch menu!

2. Predicting a rejection and assuming the worst.

Via College Humor

Great, he hates me! He thinks I'm a total weirdo and is probably mocking my very existence right now.

3. Auto-correct embarrassment.

Via College Humor

Don't seem too eager... PLEASE LOVE ME! Dang, I think that was too eager...

4. Those three little dots of dread.



Via Jerk Magazine

Wow, your response time is impeccable... NOT! Just say what you need to say!

5. Assuming the worst when someone doesn't respond.

Via Tastefully Offensive

She has probably been attacked by zombies...and I was too slow to save her. Oh god! What if she's still being attacked? What do I do?

6. Feeling like a bother when you text first.

Via Pinterest

Hey! Oh dang, I'm probably annoying her...I take it back!

7. Trying to decipher the exact meaning of excess letters.


Via Confessions

"Funnyyy!" OK, three y's, that means he thinks I'm actually funny? No, he's definitely mocking me.

8. Deciding on a context appropriate emoji.

Via DailyMail

OK, to use the eggplant emoji or to not use the eggplant emoji...

9. Immediately regretting a text and wishing there was a way to undo it.

Via Pinterest

"LOL, you're sooooooo funny :)" OH GOD NO, that sounded way too eager! ABORT MISSION!

10. Wondering what you did wrong when someone is online but ignores your text.

Great, that status was probably about me...she could at least say it to my face!

11. The fear of misinterpreting a text.

Via Life Hack

He didn't use a smiley face...that means he's mad at me! Or is he just busy? Or maybe he just didn't see it...should I send it again?

Stressed about money? Tired of being told it's just coz you're a lazy millennial? Have no fear! Follow any one of these fifteen tips to be rolling in millions in no time.

1. Pick the right major.

If it's a field people want to go into, it's probably the wrong one. Don't you dare work with kids or old people or charities. Only science and math for you.

2. Invest early.

It's all about starting early. The difference between investing at 25 and at 30 is a million dollars. If you don't have the money to invest now--you'll be poor forever. But if you start when you're born you can be a millionaire by the time you graduate. Nothing to it.

3. Don't go into debt. 

https://www.facebook.com/juicymemeboys/photos/basw.Abq3ZHjuErhO93k205v

It doesn't matter that in the '70s a minimum wage summer job could pay for university and today Visa and McDonald's estimate that to afford to live on your own, all it takes is two full-time jobs and a willingness to not budget anything for health insurance, fuel or maintenance for your car, or groceries. NBD. All this whining about college tuition on top of living expenses? Everyone knows millennials are lazy. Just get a fourth job already for tuition. God gave everyone the same 24 hours.


4. Stop buying Starbucks. 

https://www.google.com/search?as_st=y&hl=en&tbs=sur%3Af&tbm=isc

The only obstacle between you and your six-figure-income is your $5 daily coffee habit. See, if you drink no Starbucks and commit to morning misery for the next sixty years, you can retire with a million dollars.

5. Get a side hustle. 

https://www.google.com/search?as_st=y&hl=en&tbs=sur%3Af&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=sPD

Work a side job for an extra 20 hrs/ week. Just think. If you work an extra 20 hours a week at $15/hr, ignore taxes, and only put 10hrs of your extra income towards all the bills your 40hr/week job doesn't cover, that leaves you $150 extra income a week. That's $7,800 a year. Make sure you don't get sick or buy a house or have your car break down and in 128 years you'll be a millionaire.

6. Just ask for it.

Like this guy.

7. Get a sugar daddy. 

https://www.facebook.com/773348686200763/photos/basw.AbqEBP_1W

This is easier than you'd think. I personally know several sugar babies, and according to the premiere site for sugar arrangements, there are handsome sugar daddies out there just aching to drip you in jewelry and pay you $2,800/month for tuition, compromising of morals encouraged but not required.

8. Marry rich!

https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS701US701&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=

Harder than finding a sugar daddy, but (presumably) more legal than some of the following options.

9. Commit check fraud.

it worked out for Frank. Till he went to jail.

10. Be an Uber driver in NYC. 

https://www.google.com/search?as_st=y&hl=en&tbs=sur%3Af&tbm=isch&sa=

All it takes is making sure you have $0.00 in expenses and in 10yrs you'll be a millionaire.

11. Rob banks. 

https://www.google.com/search?as_st=y&hl=en&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=ffX9W9G7N

Robin Hood had it easy. But thanks to all the films and TV series that showcase crime, we can all be experts at heists.

12. Have your child review toys on YouTube. 

https://www.google.com/search?as_st=y&hl=en&tbs=sur%3Af&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=

This kid made 11 million when he was 7. No kid? No problem. Find a baby daddy, have a cute kid, and put the kiddie's nose to the grindstone. Bam. 11million in under 8 years.

13. Sell your organs on the black market. 

https://www.facebook.com/1297809563661335/photos/bc.AbpCq3Xhu4rCmuMFy7XQ41SS36Xq5dRSbpVH8

Did you know that theoretically your body is worth up to $45 million? You have to sell every drop of it, but living in the lap of luxury till your body goes into renal failure is worth it. It's not a dumb way to die if you get buried in a gold casket, amiright?


14. Win the lottery. 

Your odds could be as close as 1 in 13,983,816. According to the National Weather Service, you're 20,000 times more likely to be hit by lightning than win the Mega Millions—if you bought a ticket each week, you could win once every 269,000 years. But someone's gotta win it. Might as well be you.

15. Overthrow the government and re-haul our failing economic system.

Good luck.
