October 1st, 2018| Even the largest passenger vehicles are no match for commercial semi trucks during accidents. That’s because big pickup trucks and SUVs weigh around 6,000 pounds, while fully loaded tractor trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. The massive difference in size and weight between big trucks and passenger vehicles means that occupants of the latter are significantly more likely to suffer disabling and even life-threatening injuries during accidents involving the two types of vehicles. At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California truck accident attorneys are dedicated to helping innocent victims get compensation after being hurt in big truck crashes. Truck accident claims are complicated, and pursuing damages on your own can be difficult. Choosing us to fight for you after a truck accident can improve your chances of getting a favorable outcome for three reasons:
- We can prove you weren’t at fault—The stakes are higher in big truck accident claims, and that means insurance companies are often more aggressive in protecting their clients and their profits. We’ll collect evidence that leaves no doubt about who was at fault.
- We can prove who was at fault—It’s not enough to prove you didn’t cause the crash. We’ll also determine which parties are liable, including the truck driver, truck company, and truck owner.
- We can negotiate to get you full compensation—Even if the insurance company agrees to pay a settlement, it will try to pay you as little as possible. We’ll negotiate to make sure you’re fairly compensated.
