“Why are truck accident injuries often more serious than car accidents?”
A fully-loaded tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. In contrast, most cars weigh 3,500 to 4,000 pounds. Such a dramatic difference in weight means that heavier tractor-trailers strike a vehicle with more power and force, resulting in much more severe accidents, which many times result in fatal truck accident injuries.
“What are common truck accident injuries?”
Truck accident injuries in Las Vegas and throughout Nevada vary widely. Depending on the speed of your accident and the angle of impact, injuries caused by a truck accident include:
- Broken bones
- Head injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Other permanent disability
“Who will pay for my truck accident injuries?”
The answer to this simple question can often be extremely complicated. In most cases, the insurance company for the truck driver who caused your accident pays your medical expenses, car repair bill and other accident-related expenses. But unlike car accidents, other people or companies could be responsible for paying for your truck accident. The trucking company that hired the driver might be responsible. Or the company that loaded the truck or packaged the products could be to blame. The possibilities are practically endless.
“What if the responsible party refuses to pay for my truck accident injuries?”
This situation happens all the time. In many cases, the truck driver or trucking company claims they did nothing wrong and should not be held responsible for your truck accident. They might even claim you did something to cause your accident. That’s why you need to fight back and hold them responsible for their actions. You didn’t do anything wrong. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistake.
“Can I negotiate with insurance companies for my truck accident injuries?”
Yes. If an insurance company refuses to pay or does not pay enough to cover the true cost of your truck accident injuries, you can negotiate with the insurance company for more money. Many insurance companies will insist they can’t pay a cent more, that their first offer is their best offer. We know the truth. We know that more insurance companies are always willing to pay more. You didn’t do anything wrong. Why should you suffer financially?
