Oklahoma Truck Collisions
Trucking collisions are different than most motor vehicle collisions in a number of ways:
- The injuries are often catastrophic or fatal — A fully loaded semi can weigh 80,000 pounds compared to an average of around 4,000 pounds for the typical passenger car. When that much weight impacts at highway speeds, the effect on the vehicle’s occupants can be devastating. Extensive medical care may be necessary for years. A full recovery may never be possible.
- The insurance companies are committed to denying or minimizing a claim — The insurance companies know how expensive the care is for people who have suffered the types of injuries trucking collisions often cause. They begin working immediately to build a case that will shield them from having to pay out the substantial compensation often required in trucking collision claims.
- The investigations can be very complex — Our team has experience working with a wide range of experts such as accident reconstruction experts who can help us understand exactly how the accident happened. We investigate logbooks, black boxes and all other potential sources of evidence that can help our clients.
