Complications In Truck Wreck Claims
Eighteen-wheeler wrecks tend to be much more complex than car wrecks or other personal injury claims. Complications include:
- Severe injuries: Because of the size and weight discrepancy between a car and an 18-wheeler, as well as the speed involved in a highway wreck, the injuries that result from a truck wreck can be severe.
- Aggressive defense: Because trucking companies are so financially invested in their businesses, they are well-insured. The trucking companies and their carriers are experienced and aggressive in defending against truck wreck claims.
- Causation: Because trucking companies and drivers make their profits based on how quickly they can deliver, there is significant pressure on drivers to drive faster and longer. Although there are strict laws regulating driving speeds and hours, many truckers drive way too fast and alter their driver logbooks to hide the fact that they are working too many hours at a time. Some even use drugs and alcohol to stay awake or handle the severe pressure they are under. All of these actions increase the risk to other drivers and the complications involved with truck wreck cases.
Attorney Stephen G. Nagle has extensive experience studying driver logbooks and other evidence to establish liability and build his clients’ cases. Stephen G. Nagle & Associates will find the cause of your accident and fight the trucking company and its insurance carrier to help you obtain the full compensation to which you are entitled.
