Who's At Fault?

Put Our Lecanto 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.

Different Regulations

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.

Automobile Accident Case

Fought tooth and nail with the at fault insurance company for me every time they didn’t want to pay for a rental car and helped set up all of my medical appointments. Jordan and Joseph are the best. I got more than 20 times the money I thought I would be receiving from the settlement. I was literally brought to happy tears over how they handled everything!

Automobile Accident Case

Dealing with insurance companies is not a pleasant experience and I wanted a professional on my side. I met with Joe Lowman who explained the process to me and put me at ease with me realizing that I had a competent, capable and experienced team fighting for me. They navigated through getting my car fixed and countless medical appointments and kept me informed as things progressed. Joe Hill was awesome at taking the facts, communicating with the doctors offices and insurance companies and getting the best outcome possible. The outcome was greater than I thought was possible. This would not have been possible without the awesome work, skills and professionalism of Joe Hill. He is great and I will always recommend Lowman Law Firm. You guys are fantastic!
