We’ve all been there. Driving down the freeway on the way to work or to visit friends, and you see a huge commercial truck or semi-truck driving way too fast for the conditions or straddling lanes creating a dangerous situation. It’s really scary.
Unfortunately, every year in California, more than 300 people are killed and over 4,000 are injured in truck accidents or semi-truck accidents involving big rigs and 18 wheelers. As a regional hub and major transportation corridor, we have more than our share of truck accidents. Due to the mismatch in weight, collisions with commercial trucks routinely cause severe injuries or death to those in the smaller vehicle.
When a trucking accident or semi-truck accident occurs, the trucking company will likely send their own representatives to the scene of the accident immediately, to talk to the victims when they are at their most vulnerable. Their objective in a nutshell, is to severely limit their liability by taking statements that may be later used against you to mitigate your claim.
This is much different than a typical car accident. As a matter of fact, trucking accidents are an entirely different ballgame altogether. That’s why it is crucial that victims hire specialized trucking accident lawyers like Phillips and Pelly, to ensure the best chance at proper and just compensation for their injuries.
No, it is not. First, the physical consequences of an error made on the part of the truck driver are much more severe due to the sheer size of their vehicle. More times than not, the truck driver walks away unharmed, while occupants in the opposing car are left either seriously injured or dead.
Unleash the lawyers. Commercial trucks are likely owned by big companies with a team of lawyers in place, ready to defend their drivers at a moment’s notice. Imagine that you are severely injured, still shaken over the incident, and now have a team of highly experienced defense attorneys from the trucking company coming at you from every angle, to prevent paying you a settlement?
Although there are a number of state and federal trucking regulations designed to keep us safe, trucking companies and their drivers regularly violate these regulations, putting us all at risk of injury or even death. If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, consider hiring your own team of trucking accident injury attorneys to go toe to toe with the trucking company, holding them responsible.
