18-Wheeler Accident Claims
There is nothing more devastating than a motor vehicle accident between an automobile and a big commercial truck (18-wheeler). The sheer size of these 18-wheelers almost guarantees there will be serious damages and personal injuries or a fatality in an accident of any speed. These huge vehicles, weighing upward of 80,000 pounds and fully loaded as compared to around 3,000 pounds for a typical sedan, pose an enormous risk to motorists, especially when their drivers are negligent.
The trucking companies and their insurers have an incentive not to pay – or to pay the least amount possible – to settle every motor vehicle accident claim regardless of the seriousness of the injuries involved. This is despite the fact that many truckers are on the road in violation of federal and Texas regulations concerning allowable driving time, safety regulation and adherence to traffic laws.
