Getting the compensation you need to fix your car and, more importantly, pay your hospital bills, is never easy after a crash. It seems like the insurance company is always trying to shortchange you. And if you were injured in a crash with a commercial truck? That process just got much, much harder.
So why is that? For starters, the drivers actually involved
in the crash may not be the only people legally liable.
When you are hit by a commercial truck, you don’t just have to deal with another private citizen – you are dealing with an on-the-clock employee and their employer, and potentially several additional parties as well, including:

and why and under what circumstances they could be held responsible for your
injuries, download our free guide by clicking the image below.
You may think a truck accident is the same as a car accident, just on a larger scale, and they can be handled the same way. This isn’t true. Truck accidents need to be negotiated and litigated differently.
Firstly, there are numerous parties that may need to be held responsible for their part in contributing to your injuries.
Secondly, the process of proving fault is different, in part because the physics behind a truck crash are different. Trucks are harder to turn and harder to bring to a complete halt, and the distance needed to slow or stop a truck changes depending on how much cargo they are carrying.
Truck drivers and trucking companies are also held to their
own additional laws – including how much cargo they can carry, how long a
driver can drive in a single stretch, who can legally drive a commercial truck,
The last reason is potentially the most important to your case. Because truck accidents have the potential to cause so much more harm than an ordinary car crash, trucking companies are required to carry much higher insurance policies which pay out much higher settlements. But when you or a loved one have suffered severe, disabling, or even fatal injuries, you will need every penny of that or maybe even more to recover.
Insurance companies will be reluctant to pay. Only an
experienced truck accident attorney can negotiate a settlement that covers all
the expenses and pain and suffering you’ve faced and will likely continue to
face after a truck accident.
