The following is more information about a few of these personal injury categories.
Personal Injuries Involving Trucks
When your personal injury involves a big rig or semi-truck accident, the case will have unique issues. This is because semi-truck operators have more regulations at both the state and federal levels with which they are supposed to adhere. In addition, because truck drivers are typically working for another company, they often have to share the financial responsibility with their company for the damage caused by the wreck. In some cases, even the manufacturer of the truck or certain parts of the truck might have to pay a settlement as well if their part was deemed partially responsible for the wreck. This means you have a better chance to get the compensation you deserve when a semi-truck was involved in your accident. However, the cases can be more drawn out because they involve multiple organizations, companies, manufacturers and other responsible parties.
Personal Injuries Involving Motorcycles
Those who choose to ride motorcycles are at a disadvantage on the roadways simply because their bike weighs substantially less than typical vehicles. Because of this, any accident is more likely to injure a biker than a person in a car or truck. In addition, motorcycles are harder for other drivers to spot, which increases the risk of an accident. Personal injury claims involving motorcycles typically are caused by motorist error, such as driver fatigue, distraction or intoxication. Motorist traffic law violations are also a common cause. These can include a driver failing to heed traffic signals, an illegal lane change, speeding or failure to yield the right of way.
