West Virginia truck accidents more complex than car accidents

West Virginia tractor-trailer trucks are huge vehicles capable of hauling heavy loads and even hazardous materials long miles. Cabell County, West Virginia, readers know how important trucks are for the state's economy. These vehicles are used by different local industries mainly for transporting various goods or products. Trucks have the potential to cause catastrophic damages in the hands of negligent truck drivers. Without proper rest or rational and safe driving habits, drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles are in peril when sharing the road with a truck.

Truck accidents are known for causing serious personal injury or wrongful death. When a truck collides with a smaller vehicle, such as a car, the driver and passengers inside the car often sustain serious injuries while the truck driver often walks away unscathed. Truck drivers who had been driving recklessly prior to the collision can be held responsible. Compared to car accidents, truck accidents are more complex because victims may seek damages from multiple parties, not just the driver. The truck driver, trucking company and truck driver's employer can all be held accountable if proven negligent.

Opposing large companies can be difficult because these large companies have an army of attorneys at their disposal. Often, insurance companies also try to offer a settlement that is often not enough to cover losses. You need maximum compensation that can be used for paying medical expenses, allowing a complete recovery from the injuries sustained in the collision.
