Truck accidents are much different than regular traffic accidents. Not only can they be far more severe than a car accident or motorcycle accident, but a truck accident claim can be much more difficult because of all the different parties involved.
If you have been involved in an accident, there is a good chance that you have suffered serious injuries. Truck accidents are serious incidents, and often times they result in long lasting, severe medical problems or life changing injuries like brain injuries or spinal cord injuries.
How Are Truck Accident Lawsuits Different from Other Cases?
Commercial trucks are all over the road performing a variety of different tasks. Whether it is a smaller delivery truck or moving vehicle or a huge semi-truck, an accident involving a truck can be very dangerous because of the size of vehicle involved. Commercial trucks often weigh upwards of 70,000 pounds, in comparison to a normal car, which weighs about 3,000 pounds.
Additionally, accident claims are made very difficult because they usually include multiple parties and their insurance companies. Since commercial trucks often drive through many different states, you may need to file a claim against the trucking company, located in an entirely different state than the one in which the accident occurred.
