At Metzger Wickersham in Williamsport, our truck accident attorneys will work tirelessly on your behalf to hold all responsible parties liable for your injuries. We understand the unique complexities involved in truck accident cases and our attorneys are committed to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Why Truck Accident Cases Are Different
All accidents inflict some degree of trauma on its survivors and the process of filing a claim can always potentially result in some obstacles. However, truck accident cases are uniquely more challenging for a variety of reasons.
Below is a list of reasons why truck accident cases are so complex:
- Trucks tend to have bigger policies: It is not unusual for truck policies to be worth more than 40 times passenger vehicle policies, which is why many insurers do what they can to avoid liability when an accident occurs. That is why it is even more crucial to hire an experienced attorney to handle your case.
- Multiple parties may be responsible for it: Typically, in most car accident cases, only one party is liable for a victim’s injuries. That is often not the case for truck accidents. In addition to the driver, other parties may be responsible for a victim’s injuries, including the truck manufacturer, the driver’s employer, the company that owns the truck, and the companies that manufactured the truck’s parts and accessories.
- It is a heavily regulated industry: There are many special laws that apply to commercial trucking, which is why hiring an attorney with extensive experience in handling such cases is essential. An attorney without this knowledge will not be able to maximize compensation for you.
Trucking companies can be potentially aggressive adversaries, so do not hesitate to reach out to our law firm to level the playing field.
