Hurt in an accident with a flatbed truck? Call the experienced Dallas truck accident lawyers at Rasansky Law Firm.
Flatbed trucks provide a valuable service to industries that are looking to move heavy items across the country. They have been known to carry wind turbines, metal pipes, mobile homes and even construction equipment. Put simply, a flatbed truck is a vehicle which doesn’t have sides to help enclose the contents that it’s carrying.
Due to the size of these trucks and the payload they’re carrying, accidents involving flatbed trucks are generally much more dangerous (and deadly) than other types of traffic accidents. Accidents involving commercial trucks are also subject to additional federal transportation laws that simply don’t apply to normal passenger car accidents. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of these laws and regulations, and we can help get your claim started for no cost. There’s no catch; we literally only get paid if we’re successful at winning you compensation.
Flatbed truck safety.
Flatbed trucks can be dangerous to road users if standard safety protocol isn’t followed. This can include things like ensuring that the truck is not overloaded and that the load being carried is properly secured, stopping at designated areas to measure the truck’s load, and ensuring that the driver receives proper training and enough rest to perform the job adequately and safely.
Flatbed truck accidents often involve more than one car due to their increased stopping distance and sheer size of the truck. Additionally, contents carried by a flatbed may get dislodged from the truck in the event of a crash, becoming lethal projectiles which have the potential to cause serious injuries to other drivers and passengers.
Some common flatbed truck injuries include:
The law, and flatbed trucking companies.
The law doesn’t require these transportation companies to pay you any form of compensation just because you got injured by one of their drivers, and they will never voluntarily pay you anywhere close to 100% of your damages. It is your responsibility to seek this compensation and PROVE that they are liable for your damages.
Transportation companies have teams of attorneys who do nothing but fight claims every day. In order to have the best chance at a successful case, you need to hire a good truck accident lawyer who has the experience needed to compel these companies to fairly settle your claim. If they still refuse to do so, we’re not afraid to take your case to court. Our attorneys will seek compensation for things such as medical bills, future treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
