It’s important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you navigate the complexities if you or a loved one is affected by a trucking accident. After an accident involving a truck, the trucking company and their insurance company will have adjusters and investigators on site immediately to collect evidence in their favor. If you are involved in such an accident, do not sign any written statements or give any verbal statements without the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance companies are motivated to protect the company they insure and may use such statements to damage your personal injury claim.
The complex litigation of a trucking accident law suit involves specialized knowledge of federal regulations. You’ll want to work with a personal injury attorney with a proven record of winning claims against large trucking companies who are focused on their profits rather than your health. Medical expenses, lost income, hospital bills, and future medical or physical therapy expenses related to truck accident injuries are often quite extensive. Don’t allow the insurance company to walk away without giving you the compensation you deserve.
Truck accidents are often caused by preventable factors such as driver fatigue, negligent maintenance, or improper loading. It’s very important to have an independent investigation performed on your behalf right away after an accident occurs.
