There are an estimated 500,000 tractor trailer accidents each year nationwide. In 2002, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported 130,000 injuries and nearly 5,000 deaths related to large truck accidents. One in every eight traffic fatalities is attributed to collisions with tractor trailers, also known as eighteen wheelers. When the average passenger vehicle weighing 3,596 pounds confronts a commercial tractor trailer weighing as much as 80,000 pounds, the outcome is inevitable. The truck driver usually escapes with minor injuries while the occupants of the passenger vehicle are seldom as lucky – they are either seriously injured or die. Even with these frightening scenarios and statistics, powerful trucking industry lobbyists continue to call for the weakening of truck safety rules and regulations to reap a higher profit.
There are many causes of tractor-trailer accidents including:
Insurance is designed to provide legally required coverage limits as economic protection for injuries caused by a driver’s negligence, their driving errors. Usually after accidents the goal of companies that write insurance is to limit their cost. As you suspect, the bad driver’s insurance company is not on your side. The bad driver’s insurance company looks at you as a number, the cost of doing business and they want you to go away at a minimum expense to them. Again as you suspect they are not on your side, they really don’t care about you, your pain, your injury, or your family. You are a number to be dealt with as a business decision and it’s not your fault that they are well-prepared to deal with you, sometimes impatiently and sometimes rudely as they go about their business adjusting claims every day, day in and day out.
They do so by denying diminishing or delaying the client. It is important to retain a Truck Accident Injury Law Firm in Kansas that understands the law and the processes for your protection. Whether it’s your insurance company or the guilty party’s, insurance is a business whose goal is to limit their costs.
