In 2014, nearly 70% of the fatalities from large truck crashes were occupants of the other vehicle, not the semi-truck. When a semi-truck collides with a smaller car, the car and its occupants are the ones that pay the price. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car-truck collision, Hinkle Law Offices, P.C. can help you get the damages you deserve.
Cars Suffer Greater Damage in Collisions
Semi-truck accidents result in greater damage to the smaller cars due to the truck’s greater size and weight. The drivers of these trucks are trained commercial drivers who must abide by state and federal regulations. Due to the vehicle they’re driving, truck drivers have to be accountable for their actions behind the wheel. And when those actions result in a truck-car collision, the truck drivers should be held responsible.
You Deserve Compensation
No matter who is at fault for the semi-truck accident, you should get fair compensation for your injuries and losses. Whether the truck driver is solely liable or shares liability with the trucking company—due to vicarious liability—you shouldn’t be responsible for the costs of medical treatment, mechanical repairs, car replacement or the loss of income you suffer while trying to recover.
