Truck Accident Claims
Truck accident claims and traditional automobile accident claims vary in many significant ways. The most critical difference is dealing with the trucking company’s insurance carrier. The trucking company will send a designated Accident Response Team to the scene of the accident with the sole purpose of collecting evidence and protecting that trucking company against a claim made by other involved parties.
The Boca Raton truck accident attorneys at Kogan & DiSalvo have decades of experience dealing with such trucking insurance companies and know what it takes to successfully pursue your claim and ensure that the negligent parties are held responsible for your losses.
Not only are truck accident claims different from traditional automobile accident claims, but the contributing factors of the accident differ as well. Mechanical failures, such as malfunction of the truck’s air brakes, tire blow-outs or defects of the hitch are some causes of catastrophic truck accidents. Unfortunately, the main cause of truck accidents is the driver had operated the Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) in a careless or negligent manner.
The following are examples of such careless and negligent behavior that warrant the attention of a truck accident lawyer in Boca Raton:
- Drowsy/distracted driving
- Texting/talking on the phone
- Impaired driving
- Inexperience behind the wheel of a large truck
- Unbalanced loads
- Bad weather
