Commercial Carriers And Insurance
When a semi-truck is involved in a collision, the damage is often catastrophic. Truck crashes are more likely to cause serious injury due to the difference in size of the vehicles and the mass of the tractor-trailer. Serious injuries lead to larger medical bills, more time spent out of work and generally a larger need for compensation to help the victim moving forward. Commercial truck operators are required to carry larger insurance policies than ordinary drivers. The larger policies mean that the insurance company on the hook for your injuries is highly motivated to avoid paying proper compensation. Trucking companies and their insurers are notorious for making things difficult on the people injured in truck accidents.
Trucking Company Regulations
In addition to carrying more insurance, there are a number of factors that make truck accidents different from other motor vehicle accidents. Commercial carriers are subject to state and federal regulations regarding driver working conditions and training, truck maintenance, record keeping and more. Negligence in a truck accident is different from other types of personal injury. It is important to find an attorney with experience not just in personal injury law, but it trucking accidents specifically. These cases are more complicated and require a knowledgeable lawyer to handle them correctly.
