Recovering from a Truck Accident in Howard County, Maryland

When a big truck or large semi tractor-trailer crashes with a passenger-sized automobile, the results are most often catastrophic. If the truck driver’s negligence caused the accident, it must be their insurance company that is responsible for the injuries and damages they caused.

Commercial truck collisions are often caused by fatigued drivers who lose focus after hours behind the wheel. Even a minor impact from a semi-truck accident will result in a huge impact on a passenger vehicle. Huge impact equals serious and often permanent injuries. Truckers are required to exercise a higher degree of care on public roads ensure the safety of other smaller and less protected vehicles.

Why Settling Quickly With Trucking Companies Is Not Advised

Most large hauling companies have full-time investigators on staff whose main function is to work to establish the least amount of liability in any truck accident. While the injured person recovers from the damages, the truck’s insurance company actively works to reduce the amount of compensation they will be forced to pay, hoping to obtain a quick settlement.

Let the Maryland truck accident lawyers at Shapiro Zwanetz & Lake balance the scales to make sure you get an appropriate personal injury reimbursement. There will be no rush to settlement. While you recover, your lawyers at Shapiro Zwanetz & Lake will work tirelessly to protect you.
