Let An Experienced Attorney Handle the Trucking Company
Accidents involving a trucking company must be handled differently than other vehicle accidents. In addition to specific guidelines set forth by federal and state agencies for the maintenance and operation of commercial trucks, there are other elements of a truck accident case that you should be aware of before you accept a settlement. For example, several parties may be liable for your injuries in a truck accident case. The trucking company, the truck driver, the company that loaded the truck, the maintenance and repair company, and the parts manufacturer could be jointly responsible for your injuries. If you settle the claim with the trucking company only, you could be losing some of the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Another issue that is often a problem with accidents involving a trucking company is denial of liability. The insurance carrier for a trucking company does not want to pay large claims to accident victims. Because trucking accidents tend to result in traumatic injuries, the claims are quite large. The trucking company and the insurance carrier will do everything within their power to reduce their liability for the claim. You must act quickly in order to preserve key evidence that is needed to prove liability on the part of the trucking company.
Preserving the information on the truck’s black box is vital and action must be taken quickly to ensure that the information is not erased. Evidence at the accident scene must be collected and the physical evidence from the truck must be preserved. Your attorney knows how to accomplish this and is better equipped to hire expert witnesses, if necessary, to prove the at-fault party or parties are liable for your injuries and damages.
Many elements of a truck accident case are difficult to understand unless you have specific knowledge of the laws governing trucking companies. Let our experienced truck accident attorneys do the work for you so that you can concentrate on healing and getting your life back together after a truck accident.
