Truck Accidents and Liability
Truck accident injuries are often more severe and can lead to wrongful death claims as a result of the size and weight of trucks. Trucks include more than the typical 18-wheeler. Accidents are worsened when trucks are carrying dangerous or flammable material.
Some common trucks can include:
- Retailer vehicles
- Delivery vehicles
- Oil tankers
- Dump trucks
- Tow trucks
- Utility vehicles
- Cement trucks
After a truck accident, multiple insurance companies may represent different parts of the truck and its load. This makes the matter much more complex. An insurance company may represent not only the driver but also the following:
- Logistics company
- Shipment owner
- Trucking company
- Owner of the trailer
