Accidents involving commercial vehicles, specifically semitrailer trucks, frequently result in catastrophic injuries or death due to the size and weight of the vehicle involved.
Unfortunately, the victims in these collisions often face a lengthy rehabilitation or are left grieving the loss of a loved one. They also frequently must wrestle with insurance providers that refuse to pay the full amount necessary to cover medical costs — both short-term and long-term — as well as lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
These accidents can be devastating to families, yet the trucking companies often seem to have the advantage in settling any lawsuits because they have experienced lawyers who are adept at minimizing the amount paid to victims.
In fact, many trucking companies have insurance representatives respond to an accident scene immediately in order to begin building a case that will help them limit their liability.
