WHAT TO DO IF YOU’RE INVOLVED IN A TRUCKING ACCIDENT

By Jarom Whitehead

Large trucks, semis, and tractor-trailers can be extremely destructive, dangerous vehicles if driven without due regard for safety, or, worse, while intoxicated or dangerously tired. If you or someone you love has been injured in an Idaho truck accident, you may have high medical expenses and may have lost income from time spent off work tending to your own or your loved one’s recovery. There are many reasons why these seemingly harmless slow-moving commercial vehicles are often involved in the most catastrophic accidents on the road.

WHY DO TRUCK ACCIDENTS CAUSE SO MUCH DAMAGE?

Idaho trucking collision cases, like commercial vehicles, can come in all sizes and shapes. With large cargo capacities, it’s no wonder that trucks are the preferred method of freight transportation in the United States. Although trucks are a common method of transportation, commercial vehicles are a force to be reckoned with on the roadway.

Trucks are typically large, heavy, and sometimes carry hazardous material—making them a unique hazard on any Idaho roadway. We have found that trucking accidents can be devastating and often have a profound effect on Idahoans.  They often involve more than one vehicle, cause catastrophic injury, and sometimes even death. Trucking accidents are therefore very different than standard motor vehicle accidents.
