Who's At Fault?
Put Our Crystal River Trucking Accident Injury Lawyers On the Case!
Because of their size and weight, commercial-class vehicles can cause a lot of damage to other vehicles. In fact, 77 percent of those injured in trucking accidents are the drivers or passengers of the smaller automobiles involved in the commercial truck crash. How does this make trucking accidents different from other automobile accidents?
Larger Insurance Payouts
Trucking companies typically have large insurance policies with millions of dollars available to cover truck damage. The average truck accident involving one person can cost about $140,000. Severe truck accidents can cost up to $7 million dollars. Of course, since insurance companies must pay out so much more for trucking accidents, they often try to find ways to get out of paying you.
More Serious Injuries
Trucking accidents are more dangerous than standard automobile accidents and are more likely to cause major whiplash, head trauma, broken bones, back injuries, and death
Bigger Medical Bills
Truck accidents often result in the victim needing long-term recovery care, longer hospital stays, more time off work, and greater mental and emotional trauma compared to other motor accidents. All of these costs add up over time, and they come with a hefty price tag.
Commercial truck drivers must adhere to different rules than other drivers. For example, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires truck drivers to submit to alcohol and drug testing, keep logs, regulate their hours, get yearly truck inspections, and more. Some of these regulations can make it more difficult to determine who is liable for the accident.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my lawsuit and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a honest and hardworking team of lawyers. I really can't say enough positive things about them.
We faced many obstacles after I was in a car accident and I kept wanting to give up, but Brent fought for me relentlessly the whole time! Although, I know I deserved money from the insurance company to get better, I was in shock how well he made it happen and I made out better than I thought was possible.
Absolutely the best Law Firm out there. Brent was great let us know what he was going to do and not to worry and Paul put all the fine details into action. Paul kept constant communication, provided updates and let me know what I needed to do to ensure they could do their jobs perfectly! Thank you Paul and Brent and the rest of the Lowman Law team!! If you need a law firm do not hesitate to call on them.
They were always asking about my health and seeing if there was anything else I needed and it was not just a question to ask for the heck of it I really felt their sincerity. Through the process I got all the help I needed for my physical and mental health along with help on things outside the case that I would’ve had no idea where to start.
Fortunately, I have had a few good lawyers in my life. Lowman Law Firm falls into that experience. As a Licensed Healthcare Professional, my opinion is that they showed great regard and concern for my health. They carried the load professionally & expeditiously; never pressured me, while allowing me to recover.
