Like car accidents, a trucking accident involves the negligence of a driver which causes injury to another person. The difference is that trucking accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries, due to the size and weight of the trucks. Those involved in trucking accidents are often left with long-term damage, including but not limited to, brain injuries, spinal cord damage, amputations and other permanent disabilities.
Also, unlike car accidents, truck accidents often involve multiple parties and can attack multiple parties to liabilities, including the truck driver, the truck owner, the truck manufacturer, and the owner of whatever load is being transported. Frequently, the truck driver’s employer, or other associated entities, are vicariously liable for their driver’s actions. For the victim of a truck accident, this provides a small silver lining for the injuries because likely, these larger entities are insured in the millions. Unlike a typical car which can carry the minimum of $15,000 in insurance, a truck is required to carry a minimum of $1,000,000 in insurance. Bigger vehicle, bigger damage, bigger insurance, and the bigger reason to seek out an expert attorney to obtain full justice.
