A 45-year-old man from Dudley is continuing to recover from injuries he sustained in a North Carolina Truck Accident that occurred more than three months ago.
According to a story from WRAL News, the crash happened on January 31 of this year, along a two-lane highway in rural Wayne County. The victim was clearing a fence line along his farm’s property when he suddenly heard the noise of a tractor-trailer’s breaking system. The truck veered off the road and the trailer fell on top of the victim, pinning him to the ground in a ditch.
Witnesses at the scene of the crash immediately began to try to assist the victim, as the collision had amputated the victim’s right leg, crushed his left leg, and left him with other serious injuries. He was rushed to a local hospital and, luckily, survived the incident, but not without struggle.
Since the incident occurred, the victim has been unable to run his general contracting business and medical bills from the incident continue to mount. He is still unable to put weight on his leg as well. Despite set backs, the victim has a positive outlook on life and says the incident makes him appreciate each day he is alive.
The North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers with HensonFuerst believe the man and his story to be an inspiration to all those who have been hurt in an accident. The firm would like to wish him a speedy recovery from his injuries.
