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.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!
The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
Out of nowhere… Come a car and she hit us head-on. I thought for a moment that my wife was going to die, you know… But we’re all good! I just needed to find somebody that would have our back… I chose Michael because he’s going to be upfront with ya, he will definitely have your back!
