Attorney David J. King


Fighting The Trucking Company For Compensation

Regardless of whether they are at fault, the trucking company will attempt to deny your claim. Commercial vehicle insurance policies have large payouts, so the company’s lawyers will fight hard to avoid a settlement or trial.

We will prepare a strong case and will take it to trial if the insurance and trucking companies will not negotiate a fair amount of compensation for you. Our truck accident attorney’s trial skills and experience are your advantage; he has helped thousands of clients in over 30 years of practice. Call us today in Sioux Falls. We help people in South Dakota and northern Iowa.

Types Of Trucking Company Negligence

With numerous regulations to follow, it is not uncommon for a trucking company to fail to adhere to all of them. Negligence by the trucking company may include:

  • Driver fatigue caused by the company forcing them to drive without required rest periods
  • Negligent hiring of drivers
  • Failure to maintain the truck and ensure it is safe to drive
  • Overloading the truck
  • Not complying with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations

Any of these issues may lead to accidents that involve other vehicles, most of which are much smaller than a commercial truck.

Why Is It Critical To Get Compensation After A Trucking Accident?

Unfortunately, these accidents typically cause catastrophic or fatal injuries to the occupants of passenger vehicles. They may suffer injuries such as:

  • Broken or crushed bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • Amputations
  • Burn injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Scarring and disfigurement

The most severe accidents may result in the wrongful death of the other vehicle’s passengers. These cases involve significant medical care expenses, lost income and benefits, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and other losses. You and your family cannot move forward without financial damages to cover these expenses and personal losses.
