Hire A Seasoned Truck Accident Attorney To Represent You
Per the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, 4,415 fatal large truck crashes occurred in 2018. That same year, 107,000 of large truck crashes resulted in injuries.
A trucking accident can lead to serious and disabling injuries that require expensive and lifelong medical treatments. They can frequently involve multiple vehicles and victims. Commercial trucks tend to cause more destructive damage because of their large size. If an accident involves a large truck and a passenger vehicle, those in passenger vehicles tend to experience the most serious injuries.
Truck accidents can be legally complicated because of industry regulations and the number of parties who are responsible for trucks, including truck drivers, owners, brokers, and insurance companies. Some common causes of trucking accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Aggressive driving
- Failure to maintain
- Texting drivers
- Tired drivers
- Tire blowout
- Unsecure cargo
- Unsafe lane changes
Do I Have A Case?
Commercial insurance companies usually send out their own accident investigation teams when serious injuries or fatalities have taken place. But it is important to remember that in any case, you should still take your own photos if possible. Take pictures of any damage done to your vehicle and the scene of the accident.
Additionally, you should obtain a copy of the police report. If a certified truck inspector comes to examine the vehicle, you should obtain a copy of that report as well.
These pieces of evidence can help your truck accident attorney give you the settlement you deserve. Call Pacin Levine at 1-800-24-7-CRASH (2727) for a free case evaluation.
