Tenacious & Results-Oriented Truck Accident Attorneys in Laredo
Car accidents happen about six million times every year in the United States. Most don’t involve any injuries—they just leave those involved with property damage and the annoyance of dealing with an insurance company that is reluctant to pay them what they are owed. Collisions that involve large commercial trucks, however, are a whole different story.
These types of accidents rarely leave those involved unscathed. Surprisingly, the percentage of truck occupants injured in these collisions is very small. The vast majority of victims—approximately 72% according to numbers compiled in the year 2010—are occupants of small passenger cars—a group that most likely includes you or your injured loved one.
Why You Could Be Eligible to Obtain Compensation
Truck accidents are also different for another reason. Truckers and the companies they are employed by typically have commercial policies they must adhere to, in line with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This means those drivers are under a stricter set of regulations and held culpable for more than the average automobile driver—which makes sense, since with their massive vehicles weighing as much as 80,000 pounds, they certainly have more riding on their shoulders than the average commuter.
For this reason, it is entirely possible that you are eligible for compensation for damages sustained in your accident. These damages could include:
- Medical expenses, past and future
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional pain
- Missed work and wages
- Loss of ability to be gainfully employed and to earn a paycheck
- Out of pocket costs associated with your injury
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Property damage
