Truck Accident Personal Injury Cases
Commercial trucks pose more risk of serious damage to you and your vehicle in an accident. And unlike typical car accidents, truck accidents get complex quickly. Who’s at fault? The driver? The employer? The trucking company?
How is a trucking accident different than a car accident?
With a truck accident, there can be more complicated procedures of assigning blame and collecting from the driver, trucking company, and multiple insurance companies. Their goal is often to minimize the amount they pay to you so that more money stays in their pockets.
What are my options?
Commercial trucking is one of the most highly regulated industries in the United States. Truck drivers are held to rigorous rules about training, work scheduling, and following traffic laws. On the scene of a trucking accident, you need to treat it more like a police investigation.
