Commercial trucks are generally large, heavy vehicles that travel at a high rate of speed. In fact, because of the inherent dangers they pose to other motorists, they are governed by a very specific and complex set of federal regulations. These regulations are meant to provide automobile drivers with an added layer of protection from both driver negligence and trucking company negligence.
Many truck accidents are caused by either a blatant or inadvertent violation of these federal regulations. Poor maintenance, oversized loads, trucker fatigue and a lack of driver training or experience are just a few examples of violations that can lead to serious and potentially fatal truck accidents.
Unfortunately, it is also not uncommon for truck accidents to be caused by a drunk driver or one under the influence of drugs or medications.
Semi crash or truck accident injuries can be devastating and often result in fractures, brain injuries, spinal trauma, back and neck injuries, herniated discs, burns, lacerations, amputation, or other catastrophic injuries.
If the insurance company denies fault, we will retain experts to reconstruct the accident to demonstrate its cause by computer generation and through the use of biomechanics. We also frequently personally visit the scene of the accident to better evaluate all of the factors that go into the pursuit of a serious truck accident claim.
You should understand that the insurance adjuster, though friendly and congenial, does not have your best interests in mind. In fact, that is part of the philosophy of the insurance industry - to do as much as they can to prevent the injured individual from seeking legal help or to get them to accept a minimal settlement. No matter what the circumstances, please consult with an attorney prior to speaking with or accepting an offer from the insurance company.
