18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles are massive. Some can weigh more than 80,000 pounds. Getting hit by even a smaller commercial vehicle can be devastating and cause serious damages. So who ends up paying up in these accidents? Is it the driver of the truck? Is it his employer? Someone has to be responsible! Who else is going to pay your medical bills? Well before you sue, finding out who responsible is an important first step.
Commercial truck accidents are often much more complicated than passenger car accidents. Most of the time, there are several parties who may be responsible for the accident. It could be the driver, but perhaps the company acted negligently in hiring that driver. Maybe the accident was caused because a repair shop that acted negligently. It all depends on the details. That’s where your attorney comes in. Your attorney will be a crucial part of finding out who the negligent party is.
Regardless of who’s at fault, you’ll have insurance companies hounding you. If you don’t have an attorney, this is where things can get messy. The goal of the negligent party is to pay you as little as possible. The insurance companies will turn a “How are you today?” into proof that you are perfectly fine. Don’t fall for it. Don’t be victimized twice. Call an experienced attorney to handle the situation, while you focus on healing.
