Truck Accidents Lawyer
Not surprisingly, accidents involving tractor-trailers and other large trucks tend to cause the most catastrophic accidents. As with car accidents, distracted driving, speeding and failing to obey traffic signals may all play a role in causing a truck driver to collide with another vehicle. In addition, driver fatigue, improper vehicle maintenance and travelling with illegal oversized loads may also cause on accident.
Regardless of what actually caused the accident and who was to blame, you can be sure that the trucking company and their insurance company will do everything in their power to minimize their exposure from the outset. Because of their propensity to cause serious damage, tractor-trailers often carry the largest insurance policies, sometimes worth millions of dollars. Thus, an insurance company has a lot to lose for a serious accident that is the fault of one of its drivers. Insurance companies will often hire engineers and accident reconstructionists to rebut the fact that their truck driver was at fault and try to pin blame on the injured party. They may also hire their own doctors to evaluate the injured party to try to show that the injuries are not that serious.
