Truck Accidents

Trucking companies put too much pressure on their drivers regarding their delivery schedules and their work hours. Unfortunately, other individuals suffer the consequences on the road. Accidents involving trucks, semi trucks, tractor trailers or 18 wheelers can leave the driver and passengers of the vehicle involved severely injured or killed.

Truck accidents can be caused by mechanical problems, like brake failures or over-weighted trucks. Other causes are driver error and driver fatigue. Usually, the negligent parties are unwilling to admit liability or to assume financial responsibility for the truck accident. The primary objective of the trucking company isn’t to protect you after a truck accident or to guarantee you and your family a fair compensation. Their main goal is to minimize the bill that they have to pay, no matter the magnitude of the injuries you may have suffered. At the same time, insurances companies working for the trucking companies will try to get preliminary statements from you to collect information that may be used against you at a later date in order to undermine the severity of your injuries and to obtain the lowest settlement possible.
