Maryland Truck Accident Attorney
Truck Accident Liability
According to crash statistics provided by the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), 38 people were killed in accidents that involved large trucks in Maryland in 2011. Commercial trucks can weigh as much as 40 tons (80,000 pounds) when they are loaded to federal capacity.
All truck drivers and trucking companies must comply with federal regulations regarding training, testing, maintenance, and operation of commercial trucks. Driver negligence of any kind can result in a serious accident. If you’ve been hit by a truck driver and need compensation, make sure to hire a skilled Maryland personal injury lawyer with trial experience.
Taking on the Trucking Companies in a Claim
Getting compensation from the big trucking companies is not an easy task. In an effort to prevent their insurance rates from rising, most truck drivers and trucking companies will use their extensive resources to deny liability and fight your claim. You need an attorney who has the knowledge and skill to work with insurance adjusters and to obtain the settlement you deserve or who can litigate aggressively for a fair trial verdict. Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. can provide the representation that you’re looking for.
