In practically all scenarios, it would make sense to give large vehicles a wide berth to avoid colliding with them. That said, people who are injured in accidents involving any type of vehicle are always advised to seek legal guidance. In incidents where negligence could be involved, victims may have the opportunity to file damage claims against liable parties.
