Driving during the winter months in the Maryland and Washington D.C. areas comes with added risks of severe auto accidents, and those hazards are compounded when a commercial motor vehicle is involved such as a large bus or rig. The average personal car weighs two tons, but the average commercial truck is 40 tons or heavier.
Portner & Shure Law Firm Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.
Accidents happen every day on the roads. It’s an unfortunate reality with the high number of vehicles that commute each day. The best defense against a potential accident is to be aware of your surroundings and practice safe driving. However, you cannot control what other drivers do.
Being involved in an accident with a large truck can have serious consequences. You may suffer severe personal injury and as a result, have costly medical bills. At Portner & Shure P.A., Attorneys at Law, we know how devastating truck accidents can be and can help fight for you to hold the responsible party liable and pursue the compensation you need to get your life back. View our slideshare below to learn more about how we can help you after a truck accident.
We see this issue crop up all the time in accident cases--our client suffered significant injuries and their medical bills exceed $100,000, yet the defendant driver's insurance policy has a $50,000 limit. If you are trying to handle your accident case on your own, you may think that you are out of luck and have no way to recover any more money in compensation for your injuries. However, if you hired a lawyer to handle your claim, your lawyer would inform you that you are NOT out of luck.
