What Makes Truck Accidents Different From Other Traffic Accidents
Truck accidents are notoriously dangerous and complex, often resulting in serious and catastrophic injuries to people in cars, on motorcycles, on bicycles, on foot and in other vehicles. The reasons are logical, as follows:
- Semi trucks, delivery trucks, utility trucks and other types of trucks typically outweigh other vehicles that they collide with.
- The momentum of a heavy truck is difficult or impossible to stop in time for many drivers to avoid accidents.
- Truck drivers often operate their trucks all day long as a full-time occupation. Truck driver distraction, inattentiveness and fatigue are common factors that contribute to crashes.
- Insurance issues are often complicated, since the driver, the dispatcher, the trucking company, loading dock personnel and others may all share some responsibility. Attempts by insurers to avoid liability are to be expected.
If we represent you after a truck accident, you can expect a thorough investigation, clear communication and persistence for your future’s sake.
