Lawyers For People Injured In Truck Accidents

Truckers and over-the-road freight companies operate in a heavily-regulated environment. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) oversees hundreds of laws and best practices to ensure truck drivers are properly-trained, fit to drive and their trucks and trailers maintained in safe working condition.

When a semi-truck or other large commercial vehicle is involved in an accident, making sure the trucker and the truck company adhered to the FMCSA regulations is often the most important factor when determining negligence. For parties injured in truck accidents in Central and Northeastern Maryland, hiring a lawyer who understands the regulations and how to prepare a strong case for financial damages is critical.

Even With Health Care Coverage, A Lawsuit Is Often Necessary

When a truck is involved even a minor accident, drivers and passengers in the smaller vehicles can often suffer serious injuries requiring medical treatment, hospitalization and on-going care. While your health insurance may cover much of the initial medical care, you will not receive additional money for pain and suffering or recover your deductible and other out-of-pocket expenses. Like many people, you may reach their life-time limit for health coverage very quickly, despite years of additional treatment that may be necessary. Filing a lawsuit against the truck company and its insurance provider is the only option you have to recover full compensation you are entitled to.
