The number of people that are injured or killed in large truck accidents continues to rise across the United States. There are approximately 125,000 accidents per year that involved big rigs with about 50,000 involving injuries, including approximately 5000 deaths per year. Truck accident attorneys are involved in many of these cases as getting fair compensation from the trucking corporations can be a difficult process.

Issues to Consider

The main issue of importance for truck accident attorneys is the damage that is often done in these types of crashes. Since the trucks are so big and heavy they are much more likely to cause significant injuries and death to passenger vehicle drivers and passengers.

All truckers are regulated by the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration that oversees everything from mandatory pre-trip inspections of rigs to accurate logging of how long they are on the road. Accidents often occur due to violation of these regulations.

In most accidents involving trucks one of the major issues for the truck accident attorneys will be determining fault and ensuring that all parties that are liable for the accident are listed on the lawsuit. This typically includes both the trucker as well as the trucking company and, in the event of a defect in the truck, it may also involve the truck manufacturer.

Complex Issues

Often when people are in accidents involving big rigs and seek the help of truck accident attorneys they have extensive medical issues. These can include lifelong issues with back and neck issues, paralysis, and even traumatic brain injury.

Not only do specialized truck accident lawyers understand the regulations that the truckers must follow, but they also understand the long term medical care that may be required for those injured through no fault of their own.

Your truck accident attorneys will work closely with you and your medical team to ensure that you are compensated for your current injuries as well as your care and medical expenses in the future. In the case of a fatality in the accident the attorney will also work with the surviving family to ensure a fair settlement and financial compensation for their loss.
