When you’ve been hit by an 18-wheeler or a commercial vehicle, often it is difficult to know what you should do to protect yourself and your family. The first step should be researching finding the best attorney for a truck collision case.

Trucking companies carry commercial policies that protect the company from driver negligence claims for personal injury or wrongful death. These insurance policies generally take seven-figure liability coverage amounts and so the stakes are substantial for the insurance carrier. This exposure makes the insurance carrier fight harder to protect their money and pay little on the claim. Contact us online or call us at 305-630-8970.
