Injured in a Trucking Accident? We Have the Aggressive Representation You Deserve
There are thousands of large trucks on the road each day. Our entire economy relies on the ability to get goods quickly from place to place around the country thanks to those trucks, but they can create some serious accidents too. The sheer size of 18 wheelers means a collision with a passenger car or motorcycle is always highly dangerous. When you are involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle, 18-wheeler, or semi, the impact on you may be devastating.
The Problem With Trucks
Trucks are a great way to move product across the country, but their size and weight makes them tough to handle. These factors also make it easy to lose control, causing deadly accidents. Excessive damage is almost always the result.
Commercial drivers are just as prone to distracted driving as anyone else might be. They could be tired, texting, talking on the phone, or even speeding. It’s possible they’re driving aggressively or dealing with rough weather conditions. There are dozens of causes of accidents with trucks, but it can be tough to prove who was at fault. Our team can help. With a solid understanding of what evidence to collect and how to document all of your injuries, even the emotional damage, we can fight to protect you.
Large trucks have to be operated with a level of care, and with 10,900,000 trucks on the road today, the possibilities for a crash are immense. Across the nation, nearly 800 such accidents are reported every single day. On an annual basis, almost 5,000 trucking accidents result in fatalities. In fact, one in every eight of these accidents is fatal.
The number of trucks on the road today is increasing exponentially. Revenue for trucking companies is expected to double by 2015. That can only mean one thing for drivers like you – additional opportunities for accidents.
Recovering damages from the trucking company or insurance carrier can be tough once you’ve been hurt. Trucking companies have a responsibility to put well-trained drivers and well-maintained vehicles on the road today. There are lots of ways drivers can prevent accidents, but often they don’t. The insurance companies aren’t likely to admit that though, even if you were seriously injured. Instead, it takes persistence from the right legal team to fight for your rights.
