Trucks are always on the road, tractor trailers, box trucks, flatbeds, pickup trucks and they are almost always bigger than your vehicle. They carry a lot of weight and can cause a lot of damage. A loaded tractor trailer can weigh 80,000 lbs and even the biggest SUV weighs a lot less. Collisions with trucks almost always result in serious injuries or worse.
Many trucks are from other states or around here, Canada and accidents are part of their business. Trucks speed, get cut off by other vehicles, blow tires, lose cargo, suffer mechanical failures from poor maintenance, are operated by tired, distracted or intoxicated drivers. Regardless of the cause they are well equipped to defend claims and show how you or someone other than their driver caused the accident. Sometimes they just don’t respond until they get sued.
