Why are trucking accidents more complex than other types of crashes?
The trucking industry is subject to rules and regulations that do not apply in car accidents that involve only smaller passenger vehicles. If a trucking company or truck driver violated a rule or regulation, that should be taken into account in your personal injury case. Uncovering a violation typically requires a thorough investigation. Additionally, trucking accidents often involve extensive damage and injuries due to the size and weight of large commercial vehicles, and it helps to have an experienced truck accident attorney on your side when calculating the full cost of a trucking accident.
Who can be held liable for a trucking accident?
Multiple parties may be potentially liable for a truck accident. Those parties may include the trucking company, the truck driver, the vehicle manufacturer, the party responsible for loading the truck, and any of these parties’ insurance providers. A thorough investigation is typically necessary to determine all possibly liable parties. At the Law Offices of Eugene I. Glazer, we explore every legal avenue for helping you recover compensation and hold the liable parties accountable.
Should I accept the insurance company’s initial settlement offer after a truck accident?
No, not before you talk to us. Insurance companies routinely make settlement offers that fail to account for the full cost of a trucking accident. Insurance companies make these kinds of “lowball” offers in the hope that you will accept the settlement and save the insurance company some money. At the Law Offices of Eugene I. Glazer, we can review your specific situation, assess the full cost of your injuries and negotiate for the maximum available compensation from the insurance company.
