Representing Trucking Collision Victims
Semi-trucks are a double-edged sword. They are an engine of our economy, transporting approximately 72% of all U.S. freight. But they are also accountable for over 100,000 injury-causing accidents each year. At around 35,000 pounds empty and 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, even low-speed semi-truck collisions can result in significant, life-changing injuries. Every semi-truck driver and company must make safety their highest priority in order to prevent tragedy. Unfortunately, some trucking companies put profits over compliance with the rules and regulations, and more importantly, the safety of every day commuters.
The Dearie Law Group appreciates the stress, confusion, and frustration that can result from being hit by a semi-truck. Oftentimes, numerous parties are involved, and many different groups may be held liable for damages. Meanwhile, insurance companies will be working to limit the amount of damages they pay on behalf of a trucking company, with their adjusters taking a callous approach (regardless of the company’s and the driver’s wrongdoing) in an attempt to settle a claim as quickly and for as little money as possible.
