Truck Accident Lawyers in Boise, Idaho

 

Boise, Idaho Truck Accident Lawyers 

The truck accident lawyers at Montgomery Dowdle in Boise, Idaho work closely with victims and families whose lives have been shattered by truck accidents. The trucking industry makes billions every year—Business Insider reports that the trucking industry makes an estimated $700 billion each year. According to the Insurance Information Institute, 4,136 people died in large truck accidents in 2018 alone. Many thousands more survive these accidents with serious injuries. If this many people were killed or hurt in airline crashes, there would certainly be a public outcry and people would likely be afraid to fly. Our culture has come to accept truck accidents and car accidents as a way of life. We shouldn’t. Nearly 70 percent of the people who were killed in truck accidents in 2008 were occupants of the other vehicles involved in the accidents, not the trucks, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This means that when a large truck collides with a passenger vehicle, it is often the people inside the passenger vehicle who suffer. Due to the size and weight of large trucks, it is no wonder you’re at risk of suffering more injuries and more damages. That’s why it’s important for you to call an experienced Idaho truck accident attorney when you’ve been involved in an accident.

How a Boise, Idaho Truck Accident Attorney Can Help You with Your Case

Truck accident claims can involve many complex moving parts. Truck companies must abide by strict federal and local laws that include hours of service laws, regulations regarding driver qualifications and truck maintenance, and regulations regarding how trucks are loaded and how business is conducted. When truck companies cut corners or break the law, these companies can put all of us on the road at risk. For example, truck companies might sometimes encourage drivers to break hours of service laws by giving them schedules that are impossible to fulfill without breaking these laws. Sometimes drivers might even find ways to falsify their logs. In other cases, companies may not properly load a truck or may fail to properly maintain their fleet. In each of these instances, they could be putting the public at risk. An improperly loaded truck can be more at risk of tipping. If the truck is overweight, this can make the truck difficult to stop. Truck companies have a responsibility to vet their drivers. Drivers must pass medical exams and must not have a record of violating the law. All of these factors could potentially contribute to an accident. A truck accident lawyer can investigate the truck company and help you get the settlement you may deserve under the law.

Another issue that can be unique to a truck accident claim is the fact that there might be multiple stakeholders involved in a truck accident claim. In a car accident claim, often the driver alone is responsible for an accident. But in a truck accident claim, the truck is often owned by a truck company that oversees its operation. Truck companies are required to insure their vehicles and drivers. In the aftermath of an accident, you may have the right to pursue lawsuits against multiple parties—including the truck driver, the truck company, the shipper, and insurance providers. Sometimes maintenance personnel can be held responsible.

Finally, truck accident claims are unique because they often involve more serious injuries in victims. The sheer size and weight of the vehicles involved simply makes this more likely. Victims might be suffering from more serious and life-altering injuries like traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and serious burns. These injuries can sometimes result in settlements in the hundreds of thousands of dollars or millions of dollars. When pursuing such a high-value settlement, a clear strategy should be in place. Montgomery Dowdle is a truck accident law firm in Boise, Idaho that may be able to help you with your case. How can we help you?

  • Determine whether the truck company broke federal or local laws, like hours of service laws.

My initial experience with the insurance company after my car accident was a nightmare. I tried to handle the case myself but the stress of my unpaid medical bills, collection companies, and the constant fight with the insurance company kept me up at night. I was getting jerked around and knew I needed help. I contacted Gary Montgomery and explained my case. He took over and my stress melted away. Gary obtained the policy limit and put a hefty chunk of change in my pocket. All I had to do was sign a few papers and Gary did the rest. If you’re battling insurance companies and you have a valid case, get Gary Montgomery to represent you, it’s the best choice I made in my case.
