Semi Trucks Are In Their Own Weight Class
In boxing, for example, weight class matters. When two fighters are in a bout – generally speaking – the larger, heavier one will do far more damage to the other. This principle applies directly to sharing the roads with commercial vehicles and their potential for accidents.
At Itzkowitz Law, our attorneys have a great deal of experience helping injured people from around Tampa injured in move forward with their lawsuits. However, you should know that pursuing compensation for the often-severe injuries of a semi-truck accident is extremely difficult. There are many obstacles in your way, but we will persevere in the face of these challenges.
What Makes A Truck Accident Case So Challenging?
There are three factors that make the pursuit of compensation challenging. The first is simply the severity of the injuries you suffer. Commercial truck accident injuries are among the most severe, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage and often, a loss of life. The extent of the injuries and the damages available are difficult to calculate.
The second factor that makes these cases difficult is simply finding the responsible party. Often in truck accidents, the responsibility may spread among many possible persons, such as:
- The truck driver
- The truck owner
- The trucking company (if the driver is not an independent contractor)
- The company that loaded the truck
- The truck manufacturer
Discovering which one of the above holds ultimate responsibility for your pain is difficult. The complex nature of this part is only made worse by the final factor: the highly trained legal opposition.
No matter the responsible party or the extent of your injuries, you will face an experienced, aggressive legal team that does not wish to pay any compensation at all. However, we have the perseverance and skill to pursue your claims as far as necessary.
