Because of a truck’s massive size and weight, the injuries are often catastrophic both mentally and physically. Moreover, trucks on Texas roadways are required to carry substantially more insurance that other vehicles.
Thus, because of the injuries are usually more significant than other accidents and because truck insurance coverage is usually over $1 million, truck insurance companies often fight innocent victims tooth and nail to deny them the compensation they’re due. This is the last thing one wants to deal with after they or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident. That’s why it is wise to hire competent representation to help you navigate the mind field that is a truck accident claim.
At Hutchison & Stoy, PLLC, a Fort Worth Truck Accident Lawyer can help you navigate the insurance issues, including truck insurance coverage and the UM/UIM conundrum. We can also help you get the treatment you or your loved ones need for the injuries sustained as a result of the accident.
What to do After a Truck Accident
