With the potential for severe injuries or deaths, commercial trucks are highly insured. Once negligence is established, most victims are compensated fully. However, these are complex cases involving vehicle defects, DOT regulations, and technical medical matters. There may be multiple plaintiffs (27 percent of accidents involve three or more vehicles) and multiple defendants (one company owns the cab, another company hires the driver, and a third company leases the trailer). Let us sort it out for you.
