Truck Accident Lawyer: Truck Accident Settlements Are Higher


A personal injury lawsuit involving an at-fault truck or commercial driver can differ in multiple ways from accidents involving standard, non-commercial vehicles. A truck accident lawyer Los Angeles can help a client to better understand the unique complexities of the case. It also helps if drivers have a general understanding of the differences before speaking with an attorney.

One important difference is who may be sued. There are also several reasons why settlements in truck accidents tend to be higher than other kinds of accidents.

The most obvious reason for higher settlements is that commercial drivers carry much higher mandated insurance coverage than required for standard drivers. While everyone dreams huge of six-figure accident settlements, the truth is that all drivers can only reasonably settle for what their insurance company is willing to pay. Commercial truck insurance is more likely to be able to afford settlements in the six and seven figures.
