Car accidents generally involve two members of the general public, both of whom may be represented by insurance companies. The insurance policies may only cover $25,000 in damages, and the insurance adjusters are usually a bit laid back about resolving the claims. Sometimes the insurance representatives are even a little inexperienced. Not with trucking crashes. Here are some major differences to consider.
Injuries Are Worse.
The biggest difference is that the vast majority of crashes involving semi-trucks end up resulting in severe injuries or fatalities.
Insurance Companies Move Fast.
Insurance carriers that represent large corporations like trucking companies know the enormous risk posed by a seriously injured person. So they move quickly to repair damage, conceal evidence, and even destroy key equipment that could prove their driver’s negligence.
Trucking Companies Circle the Wagon.
After a serious trucking crash, the trucking company sometimes has people on the scene before the victim has even been taken away by ambulance. Dispatchers, emergency response teams, and risk managers are quick to begin documenting every clue they can find, all in hopes of avoiding liability.
