Trucks represent some of the biggest dangers on highways. With the deregulation of the Motor Carrier Vehicle Act of 1980, there was an increase from less than 20,000 semi trucks on the road to more than half a million. This increased competition has been dramatic, forcing even some of the most safety-conscious companies to cut corners in order to obtain and keep business. With the shrinking profit margin the quality of working conditions has decreased and many drivers have left only to be replaced by poorly qualified drivers.
Based on the information on truckinfo.net, more than 150,000 drivers are injured or killed each year in truck accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in one of these accidents, it is important to realize that the trucking company is interested in minimizing the payout. If you pursue litigation, they will be represented by experienced trial lawyers who will know how to take advantage of any mistake or overlooked detail. These organizations will not take the defense of a million-dollar liability coverage lightly, so it is critical to partner with the strongest advocate you can find.
