Truck accident cases are not like other auto accident cases.
While the sheer amount of damage a semi or commercial truck can do is monumental, a truck accident case can be equally involving.
Given the sheer size of commercial trucks, when they are involved in serious accidents the results are often catastrophic. Serious injury including paralysis, traumatic brain injury, amputations and even death are often the result of accidents involving semi-trucks.
Trucking companies and their insurance companies are prepared to go to court to avoid paying fair compensation, and as such you need an attorney who understands what is required to take on such a case.
More and more commercial trucks are on America's roads every year and some industry lobbyists are pushing to allow for much heavier loads to be carried on the highways than the current 80,000 lbs allowed. Heavy trucks reduce visibility of other drivers and make busy roads even more dangerous than they already are.
In fact, in 2012 alone there were 3,921 people killed and 104,000 people injured in truck accidents from both interstate and intrastate trucking. That's enough to populate a mid-sized city. However, drivers and trucking companies must follow strict guidelines when operating, and both the black box onboard the truck and the latest communication technology gives attorneys the tools to build an effective case against a negligent trucking company or driver.
Those who have been injured by a truck accident may have to deal with a new reality that includes: lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of employment and future income, years of therapy and in some cases coping with the loss of a loved one.
