Sacramento Truck and Bus Accident Attorney
Truck and Bus Accident Lawsuit
In 2015 alone, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported that there were 4,311 large trucks and buses involved in fatal crashes. This figure in an 8 percent increase from the year before.1 In 2009, there were 60,000 non-fatal injury crashes involving a large truck or bus.2 Injuries from large truck and bus accidents tend to be very serious, particularly when one of the vehicles is a car or motorcycle. Large truck and bus accidents tend to have a very high risk of inflicting injuries so severe that they can result in permanent disability or even death.
Making a Claim against a Trucks Insurance
Because of the frequency of large truck accidents and the severity of the injuries that may result, commercial truck drivers tend to have higher coverage insurance policies to cover more serious type injuries, disability, or even death. If retained, we will make a request to the insurance company to disclose the liability limits of the insurance policy. A skilled attorney will keep you informed throughout the process and work zealously on your case to ensure full and just compensation.
