Getting You A Fair Settlement
Anytime someone is involved in an auto accident with a semi truck, delivery truck, garbage truck or another commercial vehicle, the result is often disastrous, due to their weight and size. It is not uncommon for the companies that own these vehicles to reach out to truck accident victims and offer them unrealistically low settlement offers. In most cases, the amount to which a victim is entitled far exceeds the initial settlement offer. Fortunately, our experienced team may be able to get you an offer that will far exceed the original one. We have the resources you will need to get the settlement you deserve.
How Is Liability Determined For A Truck Accident?
It is critical for truck drivers to conduct a series of safety regulations, called the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. These include truck maintenance, driver training and driver hours. When these regulations are not followed through, the risk of a collision rises. The factors for these collisions can include but are not limited to:
- Driver fatigue
- Inattention of driver
- Poor truck maintenance
- Overloaded truck
- Imbalanced or unsecured loads
- Improper turning and lane changes
- Equipment failure
Liability can fall upon:
- The driver
- The owner of the tractor
- The owner of the trailer
- The owner of the freight
- The truck’s manufacturer
- A third-party maintenance company
Having handled numerous complex personal injury claims, we know what to investigate and analyze to determine the potential sources of liability. Then, we will pursue all avenues for compensation.
