Truck drivers can oftentimes get paid more depending on the amount of shipment they bring in. This can be a shipment of materials, equipment, food or even chemicals. When a truck is overloaded, it is more prone to having equipment that malfunctions, breaks or does not run properly. This could mean that the truck's tires burst, or that the equipment retaining the shipment breaks, or that the truck driver is unable to maintain control of the vehicle resulting in a collision.
Claims involving truckers and trucking companies require immediate attention from an attorney. If an attorney does not get involved immediately, it can mean that evidence is lost, driving records are unable to be obtained, or it may restrict you from gaining the maximum amount of compensation for your claim. At our firm, we have handled hundreds of claims involving truck wrecks, where we have achieved favorable outcomes for our clients before a jury and through negotiations.
