Truck Accident Aftermath

WHO’S RESPONSIBLE AND WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Truck accidents are very different from ordinary wrecks, and oftentimes injured individuals may be eligible from compensation from multiple parties. Not only may the driver of the truck be held accountable, the company that hired the driver and other parties may also be partially at fault for the injuries and financial burdens that you are now forced to deal with.

For many individuals, it quickly becomes clear that the entities they are fighting following a wreck have nearly unlimited resources and are not interested in their recovery or well-being. Instead, the major corporation and insurance company that you are facing is likely to pressure you into settling your case for far less than it is worth. This is the “game” that they play with injured individuals, and the attorneys at Williams Kherkher know all –too-well the tricks that they try to play. We will not stand for this treatment of our clients, and we are not afraid to take on major companies head-on.

We have nearly three-decades of trial experience against the biggest corporations and insurance companies. We have represented individuals with serious, life-altering injuries who have been offered pennies by the insurance company, and we have committed ourselves to pursuing justice for those who have been hurt. You should not have to shoulder the financial burden that this wreck has put upon you, and the responsible party should be held accountable for their actions.

Truck Accident FAQs

GET ANSWERS TO YOUR TRUCK ACCIDENT QUESTIONS.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident with a truck or 18-wheeler, you likely have many questions about your rights, who is responsible, and how to take care of your family during your time of recovery. Below are the answers to the questions we often hear from truck accident clients.

Due to their sheer size and weight, accidents involving commercial trucks are often much, much worse than those involving commuter vehicles. We have routinely seen accidents that leave individuals with catastrophic injuries or even death, and if the accident was caused by negligence on the part of the driver or the trucking company, you absolutely deserve compensation for your pain, suffering, and medical expenses.

Immediately following an accident, it is always essential to seek medical attention. If possible, document all of the details of the accident, contact law enforcement, and get witness statements. The more information you can gather about the wreck, the better. As soon as you are able, make sure to contact an attorney, because time is often limited to file a claim.

No, you do not have to accept the insurance company’s first offer, not matter how persistent they might be. The insurance company’s main goal is to get you to accept the smallest amount possible for your claim, not to compensate you fairly for your injuries. That’s why you need an attorney on your side that knows the “games” the insurance companies play and has the experience and knowledge to hold them accountable for the true amount you are owed.

It should surprise no one who has driven next to an 18-wheeler that the sheer size and weight of these vehicles make them incredibly dangerous on the road. A large truck can easily weigh 40 tons, which is 30 to 40 times the size of the average car. In addition, these large vehicles are hard to maneuver and have limited visibility in many important areas. When you add up all of these factors, you have a very dangerous vehicle that is often traveling at high speeds.

The true cause of an accident can only be determined after investigation, but in many cases, trucking companies may be at fault for the accident. This is because of the sheer number of vehicles on congested highways, long hours demanded of drivers, and the demand for more products to be moved with each shipment in order to increase revenue. These demands often create an atmosphere in which management may choose to ignore safety protocols related to their drivers and fleets, causing a dangerous situation that may result in a serious accident or death.

Our attorneys have seen it all, but the most common types of safety violations on the part of the trucking company include: excessive loads, use of wrong equipment or trailers, improper or inadequate maintenance of vehicles, improperly balanced loads, drivers who are expected to drive beyond the hour requirements or at restricted speeds.
