The commercial trucks transporting more than 70% of items shipped in the U.S. need more than the length of a football field to stop at highway speeds—and their drivers are ten times more likely to be killed on the job than the average American worker.
Further, though we are understandably focused on inflation, supply chains, and labor shortages, unofficial reports indicate truck accident fatalities rose again last year after a pandemic-attributable drop in 2020. Official statistics, last updated in 2019, show these rates have not improved much in the last three decades. From 36,254 in 1994, fatalities reached an all-time high of 39,252 in 2005, decreased to a low of 29,867 in 2011, only to increase again to 34,748 in 2016. In fact, road injuries were the fifth highest cause of death globally that year and only decreased negligibly to 33,244 deaths in 2019.
Because commercial truck accidents are more likely to cause more serious injury or death than passenger vehicle accidents, trucking companies hold massive insurance policies.
You know, however, that facing a multibillion-dollar insurance company will mean lowball offers to your harmed client followed by a lengthy, complex, and expensive legal battle against a goliath with extensive experience and resources for defending cases involving specialized laws, multiple potential defendants, and distinctive evidence sources.
At LevelEsq, we understand the financial and time investment you face at the start of a truck accident case.
We know you strive to fully understand the cause of the accident and the extent to which a driver, trucking company, truck or parts manufacturer, cargo loader, or other entity may be responsible; that you investigate whether substance abuse was involved; that you screen for product liability issues; that you obtain and analyze maintenance and cargo records, dash cam recordings, driver logbooks, training information, and employer expectations and instructions; that you consult medical and accident reconstruction experts who charge hundreds or thousands of dollars per hour over dozens of hours spent between preparation, travel, and testimony.
