While there’s nothing good about being the victim of a collision involving a truck, it’s important to know that the companies that own commercial trucks routinely carry $1 million in liability coverage for their drivers. This means that, when an individual is injured or killed in an accident where the truck driver is determined to be at fault, the victim or family with an excellent Los Angeles truck accident lawyer is typically able to receive a higher level of compensation than may be available in many other accidents. For comparison, drivers of private vehicles typically only carry enough insurance to protect their assets. Especially for individuals with few assets, their coverage level may be as little as the legally required $15,000.
