Trucking Accidents


Roadway collisions involving commercial vehicles are unique automobile accident claims. Those big-rig trucks have many regulations that must be complied with by the business and its drivers in order to protect the public. It is often a failure to follow those regulations that results in a crash, and causes injuries to other motorists. Trucking accidents can be minor, catastrophic, or anywhere in between. They can involve:

  • One or more automobiles
  • Motorcycles
  • Bicycles
  • Pedestrians

What may seem like a simple fender bender can cause serious injuries, including whiplash and brain injury, which can be easily mismanaged without expert assistance. Significant crashes causing more serious injuries are likely to have even more financial implications.  After an accident with a commercial vehicle, there are many financial concerns, such as:

  • Lost wages
  • Massive medical expenses
  • Health insurance reimbursement obligations
  • Liability disputes
  • And so much more

The extent of damage to a body, a person’s life, and finances is often uncertain until many months have passed.  It is always wisest to anticipate the worst while hoping for the best.

Evidence in trucking accidents needs to be preserved, and the documentation can disappear or be destroyed much more quickly than you might realize. Take immediate action after a crash to seek medical attention and have your injuries evaluated. Seeking counsel from a qualified personal injury attorney should immediately follow, to ensure:

  • All evidence is preserved and investigation conducted
  • You are properly counseled when presenting insurance claims
  • Your interests are represented in the pursuit of fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries

All too often an individual attempts to manage these issues alone, only to find that they are misled, stressed and frustrated, under-compensated, and feel re-victimized by the system. Even if you’ve been attempting to manage the claim alone for months, you may find that you are no longer comfortable without assistance. It may not be too late, so don’t delay any longer.
