Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accident Information
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a person is injured or killed in a truck accident every 16 minutes in the United States. Due to their immense size and speed, tractor-trailer trucks can cause significant damage to other vehicles in a crash. In a fatal truck accident, an occupant of a passenger vehicle is 50 times more likely to be killed than the driver of the semi truck.
Truck and commercial vehicle accidents typically cause very serious injuries, and the insurance carriers responsible for paying for victims' expenses and suffering always seek to avoid or minimize claim payments. Because these are large insurance policies with high liability coverage limits, the best adjusters are assigned in these cases and they will make every effort to control claim costs. Under agency law, the trucking company that employed the driver can be held responsible for paying medical expenses, lost wages and money for pain and suffering. Thus, there are often multiple defendants who must be located and brought into the case to ensure full payment on all claims. When serious injuries occur, insurance companies with high-coverage-limit commercial policies always act immediately to establish defenses and to minimize their payment obligations. Thus, you should proceed with great caution when dealing with the truck driver's insurance carriers.
