When you tangle with a big rig, the injuries you suffer are likely going to be severe or catastrophic. Often, because of the size and weight of big trucks, accidents are fatal. In addition to dealing with injuries or fatalities, a truck accident case could involve several defendants, including the driver, trucking company, dispatch, maintenance personnel and others. If you were injured in a truck accident or if you lost a loved one in a truck accident in the New York area, contact Isaacs & Isaacs to schedule a free consultation.
Some of the many truck crash cases we handle involve:

You should not try to negotiate with the insurance company yourself. Often insurance companies twist your words in an attempt to deny your claim or to reduce the amount they pay out. The insurance company’s settlement offer may not cover medical expenses, especially if you require future medical expenses. You need to be sure that you get enough compensation to cover past and future medical expenses, therapy expenses, past and future lost wages, medical equipment expenses, funeral and burial expenses, the replacement or repair of your vehicle and other personal property, pain and suffering and the loss of companionship and/or consortium.
In some cases, you could also receive compensation for inconvenience. If you must pay someone to do chores you would normally do, such as grocery shopping, cleaning and home maintenance and you have to hire someone, you could recover damages to pay for those services.
In many truck cases we take on, there’s an overwhelming chance the crash was due to negligence on the part of the truck driver and/or trucking company.
Truck accident lawyers adopt this basic understanding of negligence in these circumstances: A semi-truck driver needed to use reasonable care while driving, failed to live up to those standards, and a collision with injuries occurred as as result. That’s bad news for everyone, and payment of money damages should fall upon the shoulders of those at fault.
Negligence cases the assembled Tennessee trucking accident team can assist with might include:
In 2018, 4,136 people died in fatal truck accidents. Of those, 67 percent were in passenger cars, 15 percent were pedestrians, riding a bicycle or a motorcycle, and 16 percent were occupants of big rigs, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. When the IIHS looked at accidents that involved two vehicles — a passenger car and a big rig, it found that 96 percent of the fatalities were occupants of the passenger vehicles and 4 percent were occupants of big rigs.
Additionally, when IIHS further broke down the statistics, it found that 74 percent of the fatalities were in accidents involving tractor-trailer truck accidents and 27 percent in single-unit trucks — a large truck that doesn’t have a trailer.
When you lose a loved one in a truck accident, you lose a companion and everything that a loved one brings to your family. While recovering damages from an at-fault driver doesn’t bring your loved one back or make you feel better, it does help to ease the financial burden you suffer. From funeral and burial expenses to lost income, a fair and reasonable settlement or jury award removes financial stress and allows you to grieve properly.
National truck accident attorney Darryl Isaacs took time to address questions for those who have been involved in a wreck involving big rig trucks or other large commercial vehicles. Listen to this audio episode exploring your next safety & legal steps after a truck crash. Play the podcast below.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), 87 percent of truck accidents are caused by the driver. The FMCSA further divides driver incidents as follows:
Additionally, issues with the vehicle caused 10 percent of the accidents and environmental issues caused 3 percent of the accidents. The top mechanical issue with trucks is malfunctioning brakes.
A big rig could weigh up to 80,000 pounds (36.29 t) when it is fully loaded. It is sometimes heavier if the truck is carrying an oversized load, such as heavy construction equipment or even modular buildings for construction sites. Injuries you could suffer from include:
Many injuries are exacerbated by pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, cancer and immunodeficiency issues. Cancer itself usually doesn’t cause issues, but some treatments for cancer lower red cell count, white cell count, potassium and other minerals your body requires, increasing the risk of infection. In some cases, you might experience longer than average healing.
Always discuss your health concerns with your doctors and your attorney at Isaacs & Isaacs. Because of the risk of longer recovery times or infection, you could recover additional damages in the form of future medical expenses, future lost wages or even pain and suffering.
