What could a truck accident be worth?
One of the biggest factors for valuing an injury lawsuit is the insurance policy of the at-fault party. For accidents involving trucks and tractor trailers insurance policies are far greater than normal cars.
Federal regulations require a carrier of non-hazardous material to have an insurance policy of a minimum amount of $750,000 to cover liability for injuries to the public. A carrier of certain hazardous materials must have insurance with a minimum amount of $5 million dollars in liability coverage. Also, a trucking company may have an insurance policy over the driver of the truck as well as the trailer. That means that even if the tractor and trailer are insured under the same policy, there may be separate limits of coverage for both the tractor and trailer (For example: $1 million of coverage on each for a total of $2 million).
While an accident involving a truck does not ensure a large injury settlement, it allows for far more compensation to those who have been seriously injured. Unfortunately for some injured parties, if the at-fault vehicle carries only the state minimum insurance of $10,000 then that would be the most they win in a lawsuit.
Florida Truck Accident statistics:
Each year there are between 250,000 and 300,000 car crashes in Florida. While only an average of 1 out of every 9 accidents involves a truck, 90% of accidents involving a truck results in seriously injured passengers and drivers. Also, while commercial trucks and tractor trailers only make up about 2% of the vehicles traveling on the roads, they are involved in 8% of crashes and collisions.
Accidents involving trucks and tractor trailers almost certainly result in serious injuries. To better understand why, consider that the average fully loaded tractor trailer can weigh over 80,000 pounds versus you average passenger car weighing on average around 3,000 pounds. Thus, any collision, even those that appear minor, can result in very serious injuries.
