Montana Truck Accident Attorneys

Don't Shortchange Yourself on a Truck Accident Damages Claim

From the standpoint of the practicing attorney, the main difference between car accident and truck accident litigation has to do with the insurance coverage that's available to cover your losses. A private passenger vehicle's liability coverage combined with your own underinsured motorist policy might only meet the first $100,000 of your losses, maybe even less.

Semi trucks and commercial vehicles are usually covered under policies that start at $1-3 million per incident, and it's possible that separate policies are in place to cover the tractor, the trailer and the driver of a single big rig. While it's good to know where your payments will come from if you successfully prove liability and damages, you should also be aware that trucking companies and their insurers are represented by experienced defense counsel with plenty of incentive to limit the payout on your claims.
