The aftermath of a "fender bender" isn't too complex: the parties exchange insurance information and the costs to fix any damage that occurred to the vehicles is covered by an insurance claim. However, accidents that involve more extensive damage, injuries and even fatalities will be much more complex. This is oftentimes the case in truck accidents involving semi-trucks and passenger vehicles.
The victims who are injured in these types of accidents need to know that they may be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. But, claims against truck drivers and the companies that employ them can get complicated very quickly. These types of cases, involving multiple defendants at times, may see differing levels of resistance when it comes to claims of liability. The truck company may attempt to shift blame to the truck driver, and vice versa.
To be successful in truck accident claims, sometimes the most important part of the case is persistence. Defendants in these cases will likely bring in their own experts and analysts to try to breakdown exactly what occurred at the crash site, and it is not uncommon for the defendants to try to shift blame onto the injured victims.
