Trucking Accident Lawyer

Trucking accidents are more common than people realize. In fact, more than one in 10 accidents on highways are caused by semi trucks, and 88 percent are the result of negligence. Both fatal and non-fatal accidents can result in extremely high costs and long lasting emotional turmoil. So if you or a loved one have been involved in a trucking accident that was not your fault, it is highly important that you seek out the right legal assistance. Nobody should have to deal with this devastating situation all on their own, and you deserve compensation for what you have had to go through. Here’s what you need to know:

The Cost of a Trucking Accident

Any non-fatal trucking accident can result in thousands of dollars worth of damage to vehicles, and the cost can go up exponentially when medical costs (even for minor injuries) are factored in. Fatal accidents are naturally far more devastating, as there’s funerary costs in addition to vehicle damage and medical treatment, not to mention the severe emotional turmoil that stems from it. But because all accidents are different, costs are not all the same. This is a fact unfortunately overlooked by many insurance companies and basic claims courts, which is why it is important to understand exactly what kind of compensation you deserve. In fact, the average cost tends to go up with truck size. For example, an accident involving a regular truck with no trailer ends up costing around $100,000, whereas an accident involving a semi pulling a trailer can result in hundreds of thousands more. If a fatality results, the cost can top a whopping $7 million, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Unfortunately, most insurance policies, even those for large trucking companies, don’t even come close to providing coverage for that, leaving victims and their families stuck with unfair bills.

Why Getting the Right Legal Help is Important

If you want to get the compensation you deserve (and you should), it is imperative that you enlist the help of experienced legal counsel. Trucking accidents can be very traumatic and difficult to deal with, but you should not have to suffer further just because of extensive costs from the accident. A lawyer who is experienced with trucking and other vehicular accidents can help determine what exact costs should be covered by the party who is at fault, and they can help build your case and subsequently carry your lawsuit through until you get the full monetary compensation you deserve. Furthermore, pursuing your own rightful compensation for having been involved in a trucking accident helps to set a precedent of justice for others who have suffered similar situations. When you’re ready, it’s time to get the legal help you need.
