Big rigs, or 18 wheelers as they’re commonly known, are as dangerous as they are huge, loud, and intimidating. These massive trucks have proven potential to cause catastrophic accidents on the road. This is why special commercial vehicle licenses are required by the drivers who operate them, and also why these trucks are regulated by the Department of Transportation, requiring them to follow specific rules. If you were involved in an accident with one of these vehicles, it’s possible the operator failed to follow guidelines mandated by the government.

Do I need an attorney?

The benefits of getting an attorney in a situation like this means knowing you have someone on your side who is familiar with the rules governing commercial vehicles. A personal injury attorney at Tilton & Tilton can identify any negligence on part of the driver and make sure you are compensated accordingly. The insurance companies don’t exist as a charity, they exist to make their money and pay as little of it as possible when their clients are found at-fault. By not having an attorney, the insurance company of a commercial vehicle might try to talk a victim into accepting a deal that is not in their best interests. Without having someone on your side who knows the law, it’s hard to know the difference between a good and bad deal.
