Don’t Get Wrecked Twice By A Truck Accident

Car accidents are traumatic. Colliding with a truck or other commercial vehicle while riding in a passenger vehicle can be even more upsetting and damaging. There are two key points you need to know about how truck accidents differ than accidents between two cars.

Placing Blame

The trucking company’s insurance company is out to protect the interests of its client, regardless of blame. If the truck accident occurs in a contributory negligence state, for example North Carolina, an accident victim who is found even one percent responsible for the accident cannot collect any compensation under the trucking company’s commercial vehicle liability policy. If you are in an accident with a truck or other commercial vehicle, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel.

Compounded Injuries

Accidents between two vehicles of similar size can be hazardous enough. The added force of a loaded truck striking a passenger vehicle can cause serious and lasting physical harm to the passengers. Serious injuries mean expensive medical care. Those injuries can also leave permanent scars. With the trucking company’s insurance attorneys only looking out for their client, accident victims can be left with permanent financial as well as physical harm.

If you have been in an accident with a truck or similar commercial vehicle, don’t speak to anyone without first getting legal advice. Follow this link to reach a knowledgeable, assertive truck accident lawyer in Wilmington.
