A large tractor-trailer truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds – about 20 times that of a standard passenger vehicle. This weight disparity means that when an accident involving a large truck occurs, the passenger vehicle is almost always at risk of total destruction. The driver of the passenger car involved in a crash, as well as any passenger, may face serious or fatal injuries.

Recovering the Compensation You Deserve After a Truck Accident
A victim of a truck accident will no doubt incur myriad damages, ranging from financially crushing ambulance and hospital bills to lost wages and property damage to permanent disability and psychological injuries. If you have been in a truck accident, you deserve to receive your full compensation amount.
Unfortunately, liability in truck accidents is not always clear, and the insurance company may not be so eager to pay out your full settlement amount. In fact, in a truck accident, insurance disputes are common. This is because of the number of parties involved in a typically truck accident claim, including the trucking company, the driver of the passenger car, any passengers, the truck driver, and any third parties (such as another driver, a shipper, a loader of cargo, or a vehicle part manufacturer).
