Every car accident is a terrible and frightening experience. However, a car accident involving an 18-Wheeler is even more complicated and dangerous. If you’ve been hit by a semi truck or 18-Wheeler, you’re bound to have unique issues and concerns that aren’t the same as someone who was in a wreck with another car.
Since most 18-wheelers are driven by professional drivers, you will likely find that you are not just dealing with the driver of the truck, but also with his employer. Professional drivers are required to carry different levels of insurance, and they have many safety regulations they are required to follow. If the driver that hit you was not following all of the state and federal regulations, your case is going to be drastically different than the average car accident case.
Injury settlements for accidents where a semi-truck or 18-wheeler are involved can be much higher than other accidents. Don’t risk being taken advantage of if you were injured in an accident with a large truck. Seek out an experienced lawyer who knows how to handle your case and has experience with similar cases.
