Moving Truck Accidents

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American moves between 11 and 12 times in their lifetime. Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, renting a moving truck can be immensely helpful in getting your belongings to your new home. But what happens if you’re in a car accident with a moving truck? Who is responsible for damages, and whose vehicle insurance will foot the bill? Find out more about moving truck accidents from the personal injury lawyers at Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys.

Like other large truck accidents, the causes of moving truck crashes can vary considerably. Some of contributing factors to moving truck collisions may include:

Who Pays for Damages in a Moving Truck Accident?

Who is ultimately found financially responsible for a moving truck accident depends on which driver or company’s negligent or reckless actions directly caused the accident and subsequent injuries to occur. Some possible liability scenarios are laid out below. Note that the following information applies to at-fault states—that is, states in which the insurance company of the driver who caused the accident is responsible for damages. 

Unfortunately, moving truck accident cases may be complicated when multiple vehicles are involved, more than one driver contributed to the accident, motorists are underinsured or uninsured, and other factors. 

Do I Need a Lawyer After a Moving Truck Accident?

While hiring an attorney may not be necessary in moving truck accident cases that result in little to no injury or property damage, most people will benefit from having an experienced personal injury attorney review the details of their case. 

If you’ve been injured, you may be contacted by insurance companies within days or weeks of an accident with a settlement offer. It is strongly recommended not to accept these offers and to consult with a lawyer instead. Quick settlement offers may seem convenient, but it may take weeks or even months to assess the true damages that stem from the accident. This is especially true if the severity of your injuries isn’t diagnosed right away.
