Many people who have been in an accident with a large commercial truck think that they have to settle for what the insurance company offers them. After all, the truck company must know what it's doing and they'll treat you fairly, right?
Wrong. The insurance defense lawyers will only tell you what they want you to know. The fact is, truck crashes are not like car wrecks. The difference in size of cash settlements in semi truck cases is often much larger than accidents involving only passenger cars. Why? For one reason: the size of the policy of insurance. Car insurance policies are often as low as New York state law allows. A commercial vehicle, on the other hand, usually carries coverage with much higher limits and truck companies add to their policy coverage by self-insuring for additional amounts.

Holding Drivers and Trucking Companies Accountable for Trucking Accidents
Truck drivers work long hours and are often pressured by their employer to complete their tasks by any means necessary. That results in shortcuts that amount to negligence. Drivers are required to adhere to regulations involving time on the road, number of breaks, and weight of the load they carry. Under the law, a trucking company can be held liable for the negligence of its drivers.
