18-Wheeler Rear-End Collision Lawsuit Lawyers - Montlick & Associates


February 24, 2022

If you or a loved one have been harmed in an 18-wheeler accident, you and/or you loved one will tragically endure significant pain and suffering, economic burdens, property loss, and substantial medical costs. This can be an extremely stressful time for your family. Unfortunately, Insurance companies know that these accident cases carry substantial policy limits and the payouts could reach a million dollars or more depending on the facts and circumstances of the accident. Therefore, insurance company representatives and claims adjusters often try to take advantage of the claimants state of mind after an accident. Remember, insurance claims adjusters' top goal is to payout as little as possible or avoid paying on claims. 

According to an Insurance Research Council (IRC) study

  • 85% of accident injury victims who received an accident claim payout were represented by an attorney. 
  • Claimants injured and retained an attorney typically received higher payouts than unrepresented claimants. 
  • On average, accident injury victim claimants who retained lawyers received 300% more monetary compensation than those who did not retain legal representation.

At Montlick Injury Attorneys, we represent clients in trucking accident cases on a contingency fee basis.*** If we are able to represent you or your family member, you pay our firm nothing up front and we are only paid after we recover  a judgment or a negotiated settlement agreement against the individual or company responsible. In the rare circumstance that we are unsuccessful in securing a recovery, you or your loved one will not be charged for our legal services. Working with one of our truck attorneys on your or your loved one's case is an essential step to maximizing your economic compensation after a truck accident.  

In rear-end truck accidents, the bumper of the truck may strike the passenger car's trunk or rear windshield, causing catastrophic injuries or death to the passengers in the car.

Truck accidents are also caused by poor maintenance. For example, a truck's braking system could be worn or damaged, making it difficult for the trucker to stop their truck before striking the vehicle in front of them. In some cases, a claim may also be filed against the mechanic or other entity who failed to repair or maintain the truck's braking system. If the trucker is employed by a company, that company may also be held responsible for damages. 

There are also accidents caused by truck drivers who drive negligently, causing another motorist to rear-end the truck. These accidents include:

  • Suddenly stopping without a reason to do so;
  • Improper turns;
  • Turning without signaling;
  • Turning too wide;
  • Driving a truck without operable turn signals or stoplights.

The time that a clamant has to file for monetary compensation is limited by law. Contact our experienced trucking accident attorneys to find out what time limits apply in your or your loved one's personal injury claim.
