When you or any family member has been hurt in an accident involving a semi-truck, it will turn your entire world upside-down. These incidents, though they comprise only 3% of the total vehicular accidents on the roads, deal catastrophic damage because of the sheer size and mass of the vehicles involved. Over 140,000 people every year suffer debilitating injuries or even die in such accidents annually, and they’re on the rise.
According to the NHTSA, 73% of those injured in truck accidents are the occupants of other passenger vehicles, and the IIHS says that 68% of all deaths in 2014 from fatal truck accidents were those in smaller vehicles.

Truck Accident Causes and Responsibility
One of the reasons that truck accidents are so hard to pursue is that there are a broad number of potential causes for such an accident and an equally broad number of potentially responsible parties. While a distracted, drunk, tired or inexperienced driver can make critical errors that cause an accident, the trucking company can also often be held responsible.
If the cargo is improperly secured, the loading company might hold some level of responsibility. If a mechanical failure causes the accident, it could be due to improper maintenance or faulty parts, holding either the maintenance crew or the parts manufacturer at fault.
Fighting the Good Fight
Unfortunately, nobody ever wants to take responsibility for the injuries you’ve suffered. Each of the potentially guilty parties will blame each other, and many might turn on you, claiming that you’re not that badly hurt, you’re faking your injury, or that you’re at fault for the accident entirely.

That’s where we come in. Our knowledgeable attorneys have seen it all, and we know just how to stop bullying insurance companies from trying to get out of paying your claim.
