The People Who Have A Stake In Your Truck Accident Claim

The average motor vehicle accident typically involve passenger vehicles that are not connected to an employer or a commercial enterprise. Truck and commercial vehicle accidents, however, involve more stakeholders. If you are involved in a truck accident, your claim could possibly involve dealing with:

  • A trucking company and its insurance provider
  • Government agencies that regulate the trucking industry
  • Independent commercial vehicle drivers and their insurance providers
  • Equipment maintenance workers
  • Trucking equipment manufacturers
  • Workers' compensation claims (if you were hurt while you were driving for work)

Navigating these variables in your truck accident case can be particularly difficult if you do not have an experienced attorney working for you. Our firm can help make sure your needs are met.

Kinds Of Injuries People Suffer After A Truck Accident

The injuries sustained in any motor vehicle crash can be very serious and long-lasting. Truck accidents, however, are more likely to involve catastrophic injuries because of the weight and size of the vehicles involved. Trucks may also be carrying hazardous materials or freight that can come loose in a collision and cause serious injury.

These hazards can add a layer of complexity to many truck cases because injury victims need a more in-depth analysis of their injuries. Catastrophic injuries like paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, scars and disfigurement or fatal injuries can lead to long-term compensation needs.
