BIG TRUCKS VS PASSENGER VEHICLES
The average weight for a passenger vehicle is approximately 5,000 pounds. The average weight for a big truck is approximately 80,000 pounds. Due to the size of big trucks, they cause more damage in an accident than an automobile. Trucking accidents must be treated differently than an automobile accident. Trucking accidents are usually more complex and devastating. Federal regulations and state laws set rules and guidelines that govern the operation of big trucks on the highway. Despite the numerous laws that have been put into place, big truck accidents still occur, and catastrophic consequences follow.
Unlike in auto accidents, the responsible party in trucking accidents is often the employer of the truck driver and can potentially involve multiple parties. Our office is prepared to immediately begin investigating the cause of your accident and identify the parties responsible for your injuries. Keep in my mind that trucking companies and their insurance companies will go to great lengths to protect their own interest. You need a legal team that will protect the interest of you and your family. You may be entitled to medical bills, rehabilitation costs, long term care, home modifications due to injury, loss of wages/income, pain and suffering, and a diminished earning capacity.
