The Difficulties of a Trucking Accident Claim

by Staff Blogger | May 29th, 2017

Big trucks are the lions of the road. Considering the damage they can inflict, no other vehicle on the road even comes close. Tractor-trailer rigs can weigh up to 80,000 lbs. In comparison, the average car is only 4,000 lbs. Given that discrepancy, it’s pretty easy to figure out who would win in a crash. Many times, the driver of the tractor-trailer comes out unharmed while the folks in the car aren’t so lucky. If you or someone you love has been injured in a big truck accident, the first thing you need to focus on is getting better. You can’t do that without extensive medical treatment. That medical treatment is going to cost money. Unless you have tens of thousands of dollars in savings to pay for it, you need the insurance company to step up to the plate and fulfill their responsibilities. Unfortunately, getting the insurance company to play fair can be difficult, especially in a trucking accident. In a regular car accident claim, you only have to deal with the insurance company of the at-fault driver. But in a trucking accident, you have to deal with the trucking company and their teams of lawyers. Getting what you deserve can be an uphill battle if you don’t have sound legal counsel on your side to even the playing field. That’s why you should give us a call before signing anything from the insurance company. Our experienced San Francisco truck accident attorneys will stand up for your rights by going after the maximum compensation for your injuries. You deserve to be treated fairly, and we’ll do everything within our power to make sure you are.
