If you or your loved ones have been hurt in a truck accident, your best course of action is to contact a Greg Greenberg Law, PLLC.
A collision between a large truck and a regular automobile can lead to catastrophic injuries, both for the passengers and the drivers. The injuries and property damage sustained in truck accidents are typically more severe than other vehicle accidents due to the vast disparity in size.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a large truck weighs more than ten thousand pounds. An 18-wheeler can weigh more than eighty-thousand pounds. Oftentimes, these huge commercial trucks can weigh up to forty times as much as a regular car, which only weigh a maximum of 4,000 pounds.
As per the U.S. Department of Transportation statistics, an average of nine people per day are killed and nearly 202 people are injured by semi-trucks. Additionally, a total of 4,119 people died in large truck crashes in 2019. 67% of these deaths were the drivers and other passengers of the cars, while 16% were truck occupants, and the remaining 15% were pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists.
Accidents involving trucks are often sensitive cases as the other party is usually backed by large corporations, huge insurance companies and a team of lawyers. These people will do their best to silence you to protect their reputation from the general public and will offer you the smallest settlement possible. Not only is this unfair, but you deserve to be compensated fairly for the high cost of your medical treatment, possible current and future loss of income, and most of all, pain and suffering.
