Defense Against Personal Injury And Death Claims
Accidents involving large trucks tend to cause more severe injuries and have a higher rate of fatality than accidents involving only smaller vehicles. People injured in truck accidents often try to hold the truck driver or the trucking company responsible for the injuries. However, in most cases, the driver of the car is the party who is truly responsible for the accident. Cars may drive in trucks’ blind spots, cut truck drivers off or hit trucks as they turn. These are all common scenarios, yet your company could still face an injury or death claim from the at-fault driver.
