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.

    Brian and Cheyenne made my first experience with an attorney's office a breeze. I'm thrilled with the outcome of my case—the settlement exceeded my expectations. A friend's mother recommended Ponce Law, and I'm so glad she did. The support I received was crucial, especially during the 2-3 weeks I was out of work. Thanks, Ponce Law, for delivering results beyond what I anticipated.

    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.
