If you have ever been on an American highway, you are intimately familiar with the prevalence of large trucks. Trucking accidents are completely different than automobile accidents. First of all, the vehicles involved are larger and much more damaging, and working with both the trucking company’s and the truck drivers insurance can be much more complicated than working with standard automobile insurance. At font-family: Geller Headline;, we work hard to get our clients the full settlement they are entitled to following a trucking accident. We are not afraid to go to trial.
Trucking companies will try to avoid liability completely. In some cases, trucking companies actually require their drivers to purchase or rent their equipment and will attempt to push responsibility on to a driver’s personal insurance in the result of an accident. At Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan, we will do our best to prove both driver and trucking company negligence by examining the conditions of the accidents, the conditions of the equipment, and the condition of the driver. In more cases than not, a trucking accident was caused by a combination of driver fatigue and sub-standard trucking equipment. In these situations, we prove negligence by both parties and can build a case for a larger settlement.
Taking on Insurance Companies
When there are two potential parties at fault (i.e., the driver and the trucking company), both associated insurance companies will try to push responsibility to the other. For example, the leading cause of trucking accidents is a failure to properly maintain equipment. The driver’s insurance will claim that the trucking company is responsible for their equipment, and the trucking company’s insurance will claim that maintenance is the driver’s responsibility. When two insurance companies fight, only the injured party loses. You need a Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan attorney on your side to help you navigate these tricky liability and insurance practices.
Calculating a Fair Settlement
We will fight to get you the absolutely largest settlement that we can. Trucks are very large and very dangerous vehicles, and more often than not the victims of trucking accidents are entitled to more of a settlement than someone who was involved in an automobile accident. When you have a Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan attorney on your side following a trucking accident, you can feel secure knowing that we understand the uniqueness and severity of your case and that we will secure the largest compensation possible.
