Trucking Accidents

Truck versus Car, Car Loses Again!

It is the same story, over and over again. Another huge eighteen wheeler that we share the road with daily has collided with a passenger car, resulting in catastrophic, if not deadly injuries to the car’s occupants.

Unfortunately, the size difference between cars and trucks cause devastating and often tragic consequences for the driver and passengers in the smaller vehicle.

WHAT NOT TO DO:

Please do not give any recorded statements or even discuss the facts surrounding the auto accident with the other driver’s insurance company. Certainly do not discuss your injuries, as the more serious injuries may not become apparent until several days or weeks after the original swelling, bruising and more obvious “surface symptoms” subside. A statement professing to “only be sore” will surely make your case more difficult and be used against you if a month, after the “soreness” doesn’t subside and you see a specialist. When the orthopedic surgeon advises you that you will require surgery to repair a herniated disc you incurred as a result of the collision!

Overworked and Fatigued Truckers:

Many truckers are overworked and battling fatigue and drowsiness while traveling our nation’s roadways. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board estimates that driver fatigue is the cause of up to 40% of all trucking accidents. Some trucking companies hire drivers who are unqualified or even unlicensed. Some fail to properly train drivers and even have drivers who have histories of drug and alcohol abuse or even driving drunk!

What the Insurance Company is Doing:

Immediately after any serious collision involving a commercial vehicle, the insurance companies have a team of experts move into action. They have well trained adjusters who are immediately investigating the accident in an effort to protect the insurance company and limit their exposure. The adjusters will be photographing the scene, interviewing witnesses, taking statements and possibly even contacting you in order to take your statement. If necessary, they will hire an accident Reconstructionist to help re-create the crash. The insurance companies do all this to protect their driver and the insurance company.
