Reasons to Contact a Truck Accident Lawyer

To make sure that you are able to pay for your injuries.

Truck accidents often result in catastrophic injuries to everyone involved. These injuries may include spinal cord damage like paralysis, as well as traumatic brain injuries or internal bleeding, and they sometimes may even be fatal. Many of these injuries require multiple surgeries or other procedures, rehabilitation, long-term care, and adjustments to a victim’s daily life. With the assistance of an attorney who can help you reach a settlement or pursue litigation against responsible parties, you can seek proper compensation for the costs associated with these injuries. Damages that may be available include medical expenses, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.

To ensure that trucking or insurance companies are not taking advantage of you.

Insurance and trucking companies have deep pockets and a strong incentive to protect their bottom line following a trucking accident. Consulting an attorney who has protecting your best interests in mind is important. Additionally, with a trucking accident, the potential for spoliation of evidence is substantial. Spoliation occurs when an interested party alters, destroys, or intentionally loses evidence in an attempt to thwart legal action.

So that you have assistance in investigating the cause of an accident and identifying the proper defendants.

Many times, a truck driver’s negligence is the cause of a collision and the injuries that result. However, sometimes a trucking company is also at fault for a collision, either vicariously as an employer of a negligent driver or directly because of its own actions. For example, if the company failed to engage in proper hiring practices or encouraged drivers to rush to make deliveries, it may be accountable for the injuries that occurred as a result. Establishing which parties were negligent may involve a detailed investigation into a company’s business practices, as well as a careful review of a driver’s logbooks and whether or not they are accurate.

Knowledge of laws and regulations regarding trucking practices.

The trucking industry is regulated by both federal and state agencies. As a result, knowledge of those regulations is vital when determining whether wrongdoing occurred. An experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the industry may help identify whether violations happened.
