18-wheeler trucks and other heavy commercial vehicles are used by businesses to make money. That means the companies that own them want the trucks on the road so shipments can be delivered fast. Indeed, many trucking companies place more importance on speed than safety. This can expose other motorists to unnecessary dangers. When this negligence (or recklessness) results in an accident, trucking companies and their insurance carriers are quick to deny responsibility. As trial truck crash lawyers who handle these cases frequently, we often see these companies take immediate steps to minimize the value of claims submitted by injured parties and their families.
Experienced Trial Lawyers Who Put You On Even Footing With Large Companies
18-wheelers and other heavy commercial vehicles are undeniably massive. Thus, while any automobile accident could potentially lead to injuries, collisions with these rigs tend to be incredibly serious. Indeed, when a car and an 18-wheeler collide, the injuries can be disastrous and – in many cases – life changing for you and your family. In these situations, you will need an attorney who can quickly evaluate the facts of your case, establish the relative fault of the parties, uncover the full scope of your damages, and effectively communicate all of those facts to a jury.
