Truck accident and 18-wheeler crash cases are different than car accident cases

If you were hurt in an 18-wheeler accident or truck crash, you are not alone. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in a recent year, more than 110,000 Americans were injured in traffic accidents involving larger vehicles.  These vehicles include 18-wheelers, tractor trailers, and heavy trucks. Around 4,000 fatalities resulted. Truck crashes are often the most destructive of all traffic accidents due to their size and weight.

The laws and regulations that apply to 18-wheelers, trucks, and other heavy vehicles are different for regular cars. Truck drivers and trucking companies must follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) safety regulations. These regulations are designed so that if every rule is followed by every company, your chances of being hurt or killed are very low. Every company is expected to have their own additional safety rules as well. Learn more about the FMCSA’s safety regulations.

Trucking Companies often choose productivity over safety

Safety rules are designed to keep us safe. However, some truckers and trucking companies don’t always follow them. We have investigated hundreds of wrecks and have found that when truckers break safety rules, it is often because the trucking company has encouraged them to do so. This is not at all uncommon. Many trucking companies are more concerned about making money than saving lives by following the rules. However, studies have shown that companies that follow safety regulations actually save money as lawsuits cost more in the long run.

Testimonials

Trucking companies have large insurance policies

Each state has minimum limits for the amount of insurance that must be carried by drivers of personal vehicles. The minimum amount of insurance for 18-wheelers and commercial vehicles is typically much higher than the insurance limits for personal vehicles. Because commercial vehicles and 18-wheelers are required to have higher insurance limits, the insurance adjusters and lawyers working on these claims tend to be more sophisticated. For example, when a crash happens involving an 18-wheeler truck, often the insurance adjusters and/or lawyers will go to the scene of the accident within hours to start their investigation. This gives them a huge head start in the legal process.

What is the statute of limitations for filing a truck accident lawsuit?

The deadline to file your truck accident claim varies from state to state. In Texas, 18-wheeler accident victims have two years to file a truck accident lawsuit. It is important to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident because the trucking company will get to work immediately to make your claim go away. They are counting on you to be uninformed about your legal rights. An experienced attorney will be able to force the trucking company to save every piece of evidence and bring in experts to conduct independent investigations. The longer you wait, the easier it is for the trucking company to make the evidence disappear.

How our experience as truck accident attorneys benefits you

When you hire our firm, the trucking company’s insurance adjusters and lawyers will know that you are serious about protecting your legal rights. They keep careful records of law firms they go against and know which to fear. When they evaluate how much money to pay in a settlement, they look for whether our law firm has a history of winning large settlements. We have a well-deserved reputation of winning these types of cases with large settlements, and when you hire us, you are getting our decades of experience on your side.

Waiting to hire a lawyer can hurt your case and your financial recovery

By hiring our law firm immediately, you can level the playing field. When you hire our law firm, we get to work immediately. We obtain the police report, we take witness statements, and we recreate the accident using scientific and engineering experts. We get to work before evidence is lost or witnesses disappear or forget what happened. By gathering evidence immediately, we are able to put your case on the fast track to a fair settlement. A settlement that is controlled and dictated by you, not by the insurance company.
