Experienced Help For Complex Truck Accident Cases
A fully loaded semi can weigh 80,000 pounds. When these large commercial vehicles go out of control, people can suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries. Almost no one in a car will walk away unscathed after a collision with an 18-wheeler.
Unfortunately, the severity of the injuries most people suffer in trucking wrecks causes the insurance companies to put extreme effort and resources into defeating any possible claims. The insurance companies will send out teams of investigators as soon as they get word of an accident so that they can be sure to gather any evidence to help its case.
