Accident Claims Merseyside

If you have suffered a accident claim in Merseyside then contact our experts and we will tell you in minutes if you have a claim or not. Below is some information if you have had a accident with a truck or a big vehicle.



Accident Claims Merseyside
Semi-trucks and 18-wheelers are much larger and heavier than the average vehicle and thus tend to cause much more damage when involved in an accident. In 2011 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), stated that 3,341 people were killed and another 60,000 people were injured nationwide in trucking accidents. 


Some of the cases that you may be able to seek compensation from are as below;

·  Truck drivers. They must follow strict regulations governing how long they can drive without rest. Once they fail to meet these requirements they risk the safety of everyone else on the road. 


·  Trucking companies. According to federal law the permit holder for any truck involved in an accident may be liable for compensation for injuries or property damage. 


·  Equipment manufacturers. Semi-trucks require complex equipment and systems to operate effectively and the failure of just one component may result in a serious accident hence you may be able to seek compensation from manufacturers if equipment failure was to blame for your accident and injuries. 


·  Shippers and loaders. Shippers and loaders may be liable if they improperly load trailers with too much weight or an unbalanced load that may cause the driver to lose control. 


·  Insurance companies. Just like all drivers on the road truck drivers and trucking companies are required to hold liability insurance. In case their insurer refuses to give you the compensation you deserve, your lawyer can help file a lawsuit.


Truck drivers who cause accidents while illegally using a cell phone are subject to both civil and criminal penalties. A trucking company may also be liable for failing to properly maintain or inspect its vehicles or a trucking company may be liable for encouraging unsafe driving practices.
