Not all motor vehicle accidents are the same. Fort Lauderdale injury lawyer David Fuchs explains the difference between car accident and truck accident cases. It’s much more likely that a person involved in an accident with an 18 wheeler semi truck sustained more property damage and an increased severity of bodily harm compared to one involving a car. Thus, in the unfortunate event that an accident with a truck occurs, it’s usually easier to make a liability case of that accident.
Semi trucks also carry commercial insurance with coverage of 1 million dollars, whereas in the state of Florida, automobile drivers are only required to carry $10,000 of personal injury benefits and property damage insurance. It’s likely that an accident involving a car vs car wreck may not have the kind of insurance coverage in order to make a liability claim, compared to 18 wheeler trucks that have the required coverage.
