Trucking, Big Rig, and 18 Wheeler Accidents
Every day, countless commercial trucks, tractor trailers, and 18 wheelers share the Tampa roads with other motor vehicles. These trucks are extremely large in size, carry immense loads, and literally weigh tons. Therefore, you can imagine what could happen to people who are involved in a collision with one of these gigantic trucks, especially when it comes to their odds of escaping alive or uninjured. After a trucking accident occurs, people who are involved in the accident will usually sustain serious, life-threatening injuries. These injuries may be catastrophic and could become worse with time unless the person is able to obtain proper medical treatment.
Additionally, after a person is involved in a trucking accident, it is likely that the trucking company will try to get involved. Oftentimes, when these crashes occur the cause for the accident (such as negligence) can be traced back to the truck company. For this reason, trucking companies may try to act quickly in order to cover up their mistakes. In addition, they may try to get an injured party to settle prior to the case being taken to court because they want to avoid investigation which could lead to their need to pay out maximum damage costs.
