Devastating Truck Accidents And Financial Compensation
Truck accidents are often far more dangerous than standard car accidents. A truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds when it is fully loaded. If your vehicle weighs a very typical 4,000 pounds, that means the truck weighs 20 times as much as your vehicle. When two objects of such varying weights collide at high speeds, it is the smaller object that takes on vastly more damage.
When a truck driver makes a mistake, it is the driver in the smaller vehicle who pays the price. At Theisen & Associates in Fort Wayne, Indiana, we stand up for the injured.
Seeking Compensation For The Victims Of Careless Truck Drivers
When you face serious costs from lost wages, high medical bills and much more, our lawyers can help you seek the compensation you need. We have worked with insurance companies in the past, so we understand how to build a strong case for you.
For instance, the truck driver may have violated Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. That is often a key in determining liability, as the driver may have driven too many hours in a row without taking a rest break or used a hand-held device while behind the wheel. These actions – and many more – violate those FMCSA rules and mean liable drivers and the companies they drive for may have to cover your costs.
