How big truck accidents are different than other vehicle accidents
Big trucks are a necessary part of our modern lives. They transport everything from groceries to cars across the country. If you’re involved in an accident with one of these big trucks, though, your injuries and the damage to your vehicle are likely to be more significant than an accident with a regular-size vehicle. If you have been injured in a big truck accident, contact the truck accident experts at the John Mobley Law Firm. We will fight to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
Because of their size – and the fact that they usually haul a lot of extra weight – big trucks can cause a lot of damage. Even a slow-speed accident with a big truck can total the biggest pickup truck. Small, compact cars rarely stand a chance against these giants of the road.
And that’s just property damage. Imagine the injuries to drivers and passengers in smaller vehicles. A collision with a big truck easily can lead to broken bones, paralysis, massive internal injuries and, quite often, death.
Major injuries and damage require major compensation, which is where the John Mobley Law Firm comes in. If you’ve been injured at the fault of a big truck driver, the trucking company’s insurance might offer you a financial settlement. It might seem like a lot of money at the time, but did you consider future medical costs for rehabilitation, physical therapy, lost wages and more?
Your experienced truck accident attorney will help you determine a fair compensation for your vehicle damage and injuries. Additionally, your attorney knows how to find all liable parties and file the right claims. You might think you can receive compensation only from the driver’s insurance, but, depending on the circumstances, you might be able to collect from the truck owner, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer and other sources.
If you have been injured in a big truck accident, make sure you contact the John Mobley Law Firm to discuss your compensation options. As always, your initial consultation is free.
