Truck accidents are a big deal for everyone involved—in many ways.
First, they’re more likely to result in serious injuries and death than other types of accidents. That’s because big trucks outweigh even the largest passenger vehicles 15 times over. When they collide, surviving or escaping severe injuries is often a matter of luck.
Second, there are more potentially liable parties in truck accidents. The truck driver, owner, and company all may be involved. In addition, other drivers can be liable if they caused a chain-reaction crash that involved a big truck.
Finally, big truck collisions often involve large settlements—and insurance companies are even more reluctant to pay those settlements than they are to pay settlements after crashes involving passenger vehicles. Because of that reluctance, they spend more time, energy, and resources on reducing or denying truck accident claims.
