Virtually everything you buy from a store was delivered there in a big truck. There are around two million semi-trucks on the road in the U.S., and many of those trucks are in operation in Texas and the Dallas area. When those trucks are involved in crashes with passenger vehicles—including big SUVs and pickup trucks—the people inside those passenger vehicles may suffer serious injuries.
A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, while most passenger vehicles weigh around 4,500 pounds. That massive weight difference means that big truck accidents are often devastating, and the injuries that victims suffer are debilitating, disabling, and even life-threatening. To make matters worse, those injuries are often extremely expensive, and even the best health insurance policies may still result in out-of-pocket costs for victims.
Big truck accident injuries are tragic enough as-is, but it’s even more unfair when victims face financial hardships because of crashes that weren’t their fault. In these situations, their best recourse is using the legal system to get compensation, especially when the insurance companies either deny their claims or offer them lowball settlements.
