Trucking Accidents

 

Accidents involving 18-wheelers, or even smaller commercial trucks, can be the most serious of all traffic accidents. Even at a relatively slow speed, a massive semi-truck can do a lot of damage to your car and to you. Trucking companies almost always have very large insurance policies, but this does not mean that they will pay out the money easily. A victim still has to prove the seriousness of his or her injuries and still has to prove that the truck driver was at fault. If multiple vehicles are involved in the crash, even a large insurance policy may not be enough to fairly compensate everyone, and you will need aggressive representation to keep too much of the money from being paid to other people. Truck drivers have many strict regulations they must follow, but they do not always follow them. You need an experienced lawyer to research these regulations and identify signs that they were not being followed.
