Have you been seriously injured in a trucking accident? You need the experience and knowledge of a personal injury attorney because these types of accident injury claims can be very complex. They may involve large businesses and insurance companies who have legal teams dedicated to reducing the liability of their clients.
Accident Liability Can Be Complex
More than one party can be held responsible in a trucking accident including:
- The driver of the truck
- The owner of the truck or trailer
- The person or company that leased the truck from the owner
- The manufacturer of truck, tires, or parts that may have contributed to the accident
- The shipper or loader if the cargo was improperly loaded and/or secured & contributed to the accident
Semi tractor-trailers, tankers and other commercial carriers can weigh more than 25 times the weight of an average car or truck, between 12,100 and 80,000 pounds. Driving at highway speeds with their size and mass, they can cause catastrophic injury in a trucking accident with a car or passenger truck. Serious injuries can result in massive medical bills, loss of income, loss of enjoyment of life, and much more.
If you or a family member has suffered serious injuries in a trucking accident, you will need the help of a personal injury attorney
to make sure your rights are protected and that you will receive full and fair compensation for current and future needs.
Not sure what to do? Don’t accept the initial offer of settlement from the insurance company without first getting advice from a personal injury attorney. Call for a free initial consultation and learn what Joel can do for you. Most personal injury claims are taken on a contingency
