About Truck Accidents


Truck accidents are remarkably different from car accidents. If you are the victim of a truck accident, you must start your claim absolutely as soon as possible, because trucking companies are required by law to keep records for only a very short amount of time.
In that time, you may be recovering from your accident or grieving over the loss of a loved one, but the trucking company may be destroying evidence that needed to assert your claim—and doing it lawfully, too.
This is particularly important because the damages from truck accidents are much more serious than other types of personal injury cases:

  • Trucks are giant compared to cars or motorcycles, so physical healing is harder and more expensive.
  • Truckers are not individuals; they are employees and subject to commercial protection.
  • Truck companies and their insurers have lawyers that are ready to spring to action in their defense. Their lawyers WILL be on the scene while you are in an ambulance.

When injured in a truck accident, seeking legal counsel is very important. While you re recovering from you’re injures, you should contact an experienced truck accident lawyer as soon as possible.
