Maximize Compensation After A Truck Accident

Truck accidents differ from car accidents in several key ways:

  • A truck weighs much more than a smaller motor vehicle, such as a passenger car. For this reason, damage to a car that collides with a truck is often severe. Injuries are usually serious and even catastrophic or fatal.
  • Trucks must comply with state and federal regulations. Determining liability often means doing a detailed investigation to discover which regulations were disregarded.
  • Insurance issues can be complex, with potentially different insurers covering the driver, the truck cabin, the load end of the truck and whoever filled the truck with its contents. There are often enough funds available to compensate injured people, but getting to the financial resources may mean going through layers of insurers, each trying to pass responsibility to the others.

The most important thing to do after an 18-wheeler accident or any truck accident is to get legal representation as soon as possible.
