Are truck accidents handled differently than other motor vehicle accidents? Truck accidents are different than other types of motor vehicle accidents for a number of reasons. Truck accidents are more likely to be fatal or result in serious personal injury. They can also involve multiple parties. In addition, there are different federal and state regulations regarding semi-trucks. If you were hurt in a truck accident, it’s important to consult with the experienced truck accident attorneys at Lloyd Baker to ensure your best chances for recovering the financial compensation you need to recover from your injuries.

Who can be held liable in truck accident cases?
A number of parties may be held accountable in truck accident cases, depending on the circumstances of the accident. While many truck accidents are the result of driver negligence, others such as trucking companies, cargo loaders, components manufacturers, maintenance providers and rig owners may also face responsibility.
Why not just accept an insurance settlement?
There may be multiple insurance companies involved in a truck accident. Each of these companies will be working to protect their client and their profits. It is not uncommon for an insurance company to offer a quick settlement in hopes of avoiding a lawsuit. These settlements are nearly always inadequate to cover your damages. To ensure your best chance to receive full compensation, you need the experienced Phoenix truck accident attorneys at Lloyd Baker on your side.
