Large Commercial Vehicles are Risky Business
The presence of 18-wheelers and other large trucks on our national highways can be intimidating to drivers of smaller vehicles. Knowing that large trucks are vital to keeping our store shelves stocked with goods doesn’t make the experience of sharing the road with them any better, especially when the drivers of these large trucks – and the companies who employ them – routinely cut corners where safety is concerned. Truck drivers who forgo needed vehicle maintenance and attempt to compensate for a lack of sleep or nutrition with amphetamines or other dangerous substances are hazards to others and themselves, but trucking companies frequently look the other way when it comes to this kind of misconduct as long as drivers deliver their freight on time. When this negligence and misconduct is combined with the enormous momentum large trucks possess because of their mass, the results can be lethal to other drivers and often are.
A Formidable Ally in the Battle Against Large Insurance Companies
Trucking companies spend huge sums to insure their drivers and protect themselves against litigation. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that claims examiners and the insurance companies for whom they work will treat injured victims in good faith and compensate them fairly for their injuries. The best way to keep all parties honest while an insurance claim is pending is to partner with an aggressive truck accident lawyer at every phase of the legal process. Receiving damages after being involved in a serious accident is your right, and at KARAM LAW FIRM, we take protecting that right very seriously.
