How Accidents Involving Commercial Trucks Are Different from Other Accident Claims

When you’re hurt in a car accident, you’re already facing challenges you shouldn’t have to go through, and the insurance companies may not be doing their part to ease your suffering. So what happens when the other driver is behind the wheel of a commercial truck? 

Accidents involving commercial vehicles can be more complex and difficult to handle alone. If you’re concerned about getting answers and recovering from the suffering you’ve experienced, reach out to the lawyers at Fischer Redavid PLLC. Our team is here to help you understand your claim and help you recover from the suffering you experienced. 

Insurance Companies and Employers

When huge commercial vehicles cause an accident, you’re not just dealing with the driver. You’re also dealing with the company they’re driving for, and the company’s insurance policy. These insurers will work hard to protect their clients and their interests. 

Injuries sustained in car accidents with big commercial vehicles are simply more serious than accidents with smaller vehicles. Because of this, you may have suffered more expensive damages. These are losses the insurance company may be unwilling to cover the costs of. 

When insurers fail to repay you, even with evidence that the truck driver was negligent, you may have a difficult path to recovery. An accident attorney can provide guidance during these difficult times, negotiating with the insurance company on your behalf or representing you in the courtroom. 

Commercial Trucks Can Cause More Damage

The size of these trucks as well as their weight are factors that make them more dangerous than other vehicles. It’s difficult to see and avoid them, and the weight of big trucks can cause serious damage.

The average cost of repairing a vehicle after a collision with a big truck can cost thousands of dollars, assuming your vehicle can be repaired. Sometimes cars that have collided with an 18-wheeler are declared a total loss because they’ve been pushed underneath and crushed.

An 18-wheeler driver employed by a trucking company may be carrying dangerous cargo like hazardous material or chemicals that can damage property and cause severe injury in a crash. Hazardous materials include substances that are toxic or flammable. These can cause explosions or fires and cause burns and disfigurement in accident victims.

If you’re involved in a car accident with an 18-wheeler carrying hazardous materials, certain federal laws may apply to your situation. An experienced car accident attorney can explain these transportation laws to you and offer solutions to your suffering.

Call Us for a Free Consultation

Many people don’t realize that they may have grounds for a lawsuit against the trucking company as well as the driver. Because truck accidents are so different, you may be struggling to get answers and overcome your suffering, too. Don’t let an unscrupulous corporation with unsafe practices get away with hurting you or someone you love.

When you’re hurt in a truck accident, you may need help taking the right steps toward recovery, which is where your lawyer can step in. The team at Fischer Redavid PLLC wants to see you recover from the suffering another person’s carelessness caused. To learn more through a free consultation, reach out to us.
