Being hit by a truck, tractor trailer, 18 wheeler, or semi truck can be a life altering experience. Unfortunately, a large number of these auto collisions result in the driver of the auto being severely injured or killed. With such a large trucking industry, these types of collisions are all too common on our roads and highways today. It is commonly believed that truck, tractor trailer, 18 wheeler and semi truck accidents result in a proportionally larger number of wrongful deaths and severe injuries relative to auto accidents.
The company for the truck, tractor trailer, 18 wheeler or semi truck and their insurance company will start an investigation immediately. The trucking company and insurance company will try to limit the recovery of the injured person to the lowest possible amount. These companies have established very specific and in depth procedures on handling auto collision claims, especially in the early stages of the claim. Many times, an insurance company will try to quickly settle a case for an amount far less than what is actually deserved.
