Spartanburg, South Carolina Tractor Trailer Accidents
Spartanburg is a major intersection for commerce in the Southeast, and as the site of many major shipping routes, tractor trailers’ are prevalent in the city’s traffic. One such tractor trailer can weigh up to forty tons, and high-paced contract delivery schedules often make the drivers of these trucks exhausted to the point of impairment. Even a “minor collision” with a tractor trailer can maim or kill the driver of a vehicle unequipped for such a crash. A shocking statistic is that one of every eight traffic-related deaths is caused by the involvement of a tractor trailer.
Trucking companies have massive reason to dodge insurance claims, as every payout they make for an accident is permanently placed on their record; this makes pursuing compensation for injuries or deaths caused by collisions involving tractor trailers even more difficult than normal insurance claims. Insurance adjustors for companies representing shipping corporations have in the past manipulated evidence and even fabricated expert testimony to avoid paying off the massive claims most tractor trailer accidents leave in their wake. Even if they never break the law, trucking corporations and their insurance companies usually employ experienced teams of insurance experts and attorneys and can provide them with enormous financial resources to reduce or outright deny your claim.
The bar is set high for truck drivers and the safety standards which apply to them, given to the major possibility for severe damage in trucking accidents.
