TRACTOR TRAILER ACCIDENTS OFTEN RESULT IN SERIOUS AND COMPLEX CASES
By their very nature, Tractor Trailer and Semi-Truck collisions generally result in serious and complex cases. Tractor Trailers are huge vehicles, weighing as much as eighty thousand pounds - sharing the roadways with common automobiles. If you are involved in a tractor trailer accident, the results can be devastating. Regular automobiles are not designed to withstand the impact from a tractor trailer collision, and thus can prove very dangerous for the driver of the automobile in the accident. Tractor trailer accidents often result in totaled vehicles and serious injuries for the automobile drivers.
TRUCKING COMPANIES HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY TO OPERATE PERFECTLY
Trucking is a huge industry, and the companies that operate the tractor trailers are very much aware of the dangers presented by their vehicles. They know that unless they are operated PERFECTLY, they can be very dangerous on the roadways. Unfortunately in the interest of their bottom line, shortcuts are often taken that jeopardize the safety of the rest of us on the road. Whether it is overworking their drivers who in turn become tired, or skipping a safety inspection, or delaying routine maintenence on the tractor trailer, these shortcuts ultimately result in an unsafe environment for the rest of us.
INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL TRY TO PAY YOU AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE FOR YOUR INJURIES
Tractor Trailer companies are required by law to carry large insurance policies on their vehicles in order to compensate drivers for what are generally serious injuries that come from tractor trailer collisions. Because of this, their insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid making major payoffs to the injured parties. The lawyers for these insurance companies are incredibly skilled and experienced in minimizing your settlement in a tractor trailer collision.
