I highly recommend Joe Paulozzi as a personal injury attorney. He took the time to really listen to me and hear me out concerning my case, had no reservations upon accepting my case, was readily available to speak with me whenever I had questions, obtained a maximum insurance limit settlement, and is still fighting for me because he believes my case is worth even more. He is an honest, reputable, class-act attorney.

Am I protected if I was hit by someone driving on the job?

Yes, you are protected. Who you will be filing a claim against depends on the relationship between the driver and their employer.

In other cases, the company that provided the vehicle for the driver will be responsible and their insurance company will pay for your damages.

Why are truck accidents more likely to cause serious injuries?

The size and weight of trucks are much larger than traditional passenger vehicles. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration says that a fully-loaded tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds and reach up to 75 feet in length. Because of this huge discrepancy in size, accidents between a truck and a car tend to result in more serious injuries, and unfortunately, fatalities.

What information should I get from the truck driver?

If you are involved in a truck accident, it is important for you to obtain the following information from the truck driver:

  • The driver’s name, phone number, and address
  • Information about the specifications of their truck and what they were transporting/hauling (if applicable)
