Although they may seem similar to car accidents, truck accidents belong in a category all by themselves. That’s because the likelihood of being severely injured in a truck accident is much, much higher than it is in an accident involving only passenger vehicles. The simplest explanation for that is physics: trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, while even oversized SUVs and pickup trucks top out around 5,000 pounds.

When victims’ injuries are more severe, their payouts are often much greater. That’s why many truck accident claims are settled for significantly more money than car accident claims. In addition, more than one party may be at fault for a truck accident rather than just the driver, which is typically the case in car accidents.

For example, the truck driver may have been speeding before a crash, and his ability to slow down or avoid a collision may have been impaired because his truck was overloaded. To make matters worse, the truck he was driving may not have been serviced on a regular schedule and its brake were worn, making it even more difficult for him to avoid the crash. In crashes like these, victims may be able to sue three or more parties—the driver, the people who loaded the cargo, and the company that owns the truck—and get compensation from each.

    Due to a personal injury accident, not my fault, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my case. I chose Ponce Law due to TV advertising and proximity to my home. Throughout the process they were helpful explaining steps being taken. They were helpful in reducing some of the subrogation expenses which ultimately put more of the settlement in my pocket. Thank you to David Wyatt & Taylor Desmet for their assistance throughout this process.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
