Large Truck Accidents Require Skilled Legal Assistance
Large truck accidents are nothing like a typical car accident. In a car accident between two drivers, drivers exchange information, file a report and contact their insurance companies. Injuries sustained aren’t typically as severe. Large truck-passenger vehicle accidents are more complicated because of federal regulations and laws and determining liability. And, the injuries sustained are often more severe and possibly fatal.
Large truck drivers have to follow federal regulations governing the industry to avoid causing an accident. A skilled personal injury attorney in Boulder will know how to wade through those regulations to determine if the truck driver violated any of them.
You or a family has been injured in large truck crash. You know it was the truck driver’s fault. However, there’s the possibility other parties are responsible too such as:
• The owner of the trailer or truck
• Company or person who leased the trailer or truck from the owner
• The truck manufacturer
• The loader or shipper of the truck’s cargo
• Maintenance companies
• Local, state or federal government entities
Skilled Legal Assistance is Necessary to Receive the Compensation You Deserve
Large truck accident claims are complex because majority of the parties possibly liable for the crash have deep pockets. They use their extra money and legal resources to avoid paying a plaintiff injured through no fault of his own.
One tactic used is to keep shifting the blame from party to party. For example, the cause of the collision was the large truck’s faulty brakes. The manufacturer of the defective brakes may try to blame the driver or leasing company claiming the parties failed to maintain the brakes properly.
If one or more of the negligent parties offers compensation, referred to as a settlement, it may be a low figure. Unfortunately, those injured in an accident won’t know this if they try to settle the claim without a personal injury attorney in Boulder.
