Types of Truck Accident Cases Montagna Law Expertly Handles

For over 50 years, Montagna Law has represented victims of car accidents in the greater Chesapeake area.

Our Chesapeake auto accident attorneys have successfully handled countless cases stemming from a variety of auto accidents including:

We Handle All Types Of Personal Injury Cases

So many types of cases fall under the personal injury umbrella and you need to work with a law firm that has experience working with them all. Montagna Law has years of experience working on all of these types of personal injury cases.

Here at Montagna Law, we have represented clients in all kinds of personal injury cases over the past years. Clients who come to us can rest assured that our personal injury lawyer offers legal representation in all kinds of car accident cases including

Head-on collisions – Head-on collision accidents involve two vehicles whose front parts collide into one another. Head-on collisions are often fatal, depending on the speed of each of the moving cars. This kind of accident often leads to fatal injuries. We are more than happy to offer our legal services to you in such a car accident case like this.

Read-end accidents – Rear-end accidents often occur when one vehicle rams into another from the rear. In cases like this, the driver in front may have braked a little too suddenly or the driver at the back may have had a problem braking and bringing their car to a halt. Such a car accident like this can cause whiplash, sciatica, and other kinds of injuries. According to current statistics, there are about 1.7 million such accident cases reported annually in the United States.

T-bone Collisions – T-bone collisions are often common at intersections. This occurs when an oncoming vehicle rams into the side of another. This accident may sometimes be due to speeding, wanting to beat the traffic light or failure to yield the right-of-way to another driver. This kind of car accident can lead to fatal injuries. Our personal injury lawyers are familiar with cases like this and will help.

Sideswipe accidents – This occurs when one vehicle brushes another sideways. For this kind of accident, both vehicles have their sides scratching against one another. This is a common kind of accident in instances where drivers fail to maintain their lane on the road.

Chain reaction crashes – These are also known as multiple crashes. This occurs when one car causes others to hit the cars before or after them. Usually caused by a huge force of impact that sends multiple vehicles into one another. Victims may suffer injuries like whiplash, concussion, neck pain, and other severe injuries. Added to this, victims may also suffer property damages.

Single Vehicle accidents – This kind of accident occurs when a single vehicle is involved in an accident, whether because it slid off the road or because it hit a standing object. Such an accident may be caused by excessive speeding, loss of vehicle control, problems with the braking system, and more. Our personal injury attorney is ready to work with you to ensure that you get the right help.

How Truck Accidents Differ from Car Accidents

If you have been in a car accident before, you might assume that a truck accident claim proceeds in a similar fashion. However, the average commercial freight truck weighs about 80,000 pounds or more, 20 times the weight of a passenger car. As such, there is a much greater chance of severe injuries, and several other critical differences between auto accidents and truck accidents.

As a general rule of thumb, the more serious the resulting injuries, the more complex and expensive the claim. Truck accidents often involve complex medical evidence and high-pressure insurance tactics that make them much more challenging than conventional auto accidents.

For example, carrier companies and their insurance providers are well aware of how high the stakes can be in a truck accident case. They are prepared to defend aggressively. Our experienced truck accident lawyers are crucial to protecting your best interests and leveling the playing field.

  1. Increased Severity of Damage
    Financial damages can quickly add up to tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention immense emotional pain and suffering.
  2. More Serious Injuries
    Injuries sustained after a truck accident can be severe and come with intensive medical care and bills. Injuries following a truck accident are often life-altering.
  3. Larger Insurance Policies
    Truck drivers’ insurance policies can be up to 50 times larger than car accident insurance policies. Because of this, these insurance companies will do everything within their power to prove they are not liable.
  4. Larger Medical Bills
    Victims of truck accidents tend to spend much longer in the hospital for their injuries than car accident victims.
  5. Greater Chance of Death
    An accident with a large commercial truck is significantly more likely to result in death than a crash involving two cars.

How Much Compensation Can I Get From a Truck Accident

Every truck accident is different and the amount of compensation a victim can recover depends on the circumstances of the accident, the relevant insurance policies, and the nature of your injuries, among other considerations.

A truck accident lawyer is absolutely essential to your case and recovering the most damages. Our Chesapeake truck accident lawyers can not only ease the stress and anxiety that is natural in the aftermath of a truck accident but can also determine the at-fault party in the accident and what compensation should come from it.

Factors That Impact Your Truck Accident Claim

Whether or not a truck accident claim is able to recover maximum damages comes down to a few factors: the presence of negligence, the party deemed at-fault for the accident, the extent of the damage, and the gravity of the accident.

The Presence of Negligence

If you have sustained injuries in a commercial truck accident, proving the accident was a result of negligence can be key to the process of recovering maximum compensation for your losses. In truck accidents, negligence can be any behavior or act that may be considered a breach of duty on the truck drivers’ part according to their duty of care.

Under the regulatory process imparted by the FMCSA, truck drivers are responsible for following certain rules and regulations while on duty including:

  • Maintaining a log of hours driven
  • Driving no more than 10 hours per day
  • Documenting rest and service breaks
  • Non-use of drugs or alcohol
  • Precise cargo loading
  • Adhering to legal service and maintenance requirements

If you are involved in an accident with a truck driver who has failed to follow these regulations, you may be able to prove negligence on their part.

Who Is Held Liable in a Truck Accident?

Commercial trucking accidents are viewed differently largely because truck drivers are generally employed by a trucking company. As the employer of the truck driver involved in or who caused the accident, the legal responsibility may fall on the trucking company. Other parties who may be liable in the case of a trucking accident include:

  • Commercial vehicle manufacturers
  • Vendors used by the trucking company
  • Cargo owners
  • Local government (in the case of poor road design, lacking signage, etc.)

The extent of Damage and Severity of Injuries

A truck accident claim also requires a comprehensive examination of the extent of damage and the severity of the sustained injuries.

In order to build a sustainable truck accident claim one must take all the resulting expenses and factors into account. Without a trusted truck accident attorney by your side, it can be extremely difficult to recoup all of the economic and non-economic losses sustained during a truck accident. Here at Montagna Law, we partner with you to ensure that you are compensated for all of the trouble you have undergone during and following your truck accident.

  • Hit-and-runs

  • Head-on collisions
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Distracted driving accidents
  • Failure to yield
  • Rollover accidents
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Left-turn accidents
  • Parking lot accidents
  • Highway accidents
  • Icy road accidents
  • Lyft/Uber/Rideshare accidents
  • School bus accidents

Our Truck Accident attorneys in Chesapeake apply our same compassionate approach and extensive legal knowledge to each and every case we handle. This approach guarantees that our client gets the maximum chances of obtaining a settlement or verdict to recover financially and physically after their major auto accident.
