Truck Accidents

A typical, fully loaded commercial truck (such as a big rig or dump truck) can weigh 80,000 pounds or more, while an average passenger automobile weighs approximately 3,000 pounds. Due to this weight disparity and the basic laws of physics, any collision between a big rig or other commercial truck and a smaller passenger vehicle can be catastrophic.

The trucking industry is regulated by federal and state laws that establish standards that must be followed by all trucking companies and drivers. These laws can determine who’s responsible for a commercial truck accident. Unfortunately, many of these laws and regulations are put in place to protect the big trucking industry and the powerful corporations behind them, not the average automobile driver. Trucking companies and their insurance companies will do everything in their power to minimize their liability from truck crashes – often starting to build their version of a case right at the scene of the accident.

In order to combat their efforts, truck accident victims should always seek legal counsel from an experienced truck accident attorney who is familiar with the unique nature of truck accidents. At Morgenstern Injury Lawyers, we have over 30 years of knowledge and experience to successfully litigate these complex truck accident cases. We have recovered millions in catastrophic accident cases against government agencies and international corporations, such as the $59.7 million jury verdict against Toyota and a $1.9 million settlement (policy limits) on behalf of a 58-year old woman who was broadsided by a 26-ton trash truck.
