Hiring a Truck Accident Attorney after Your Crash

How Can I Get Help From A Truck Attorney?
Have you ever lost a loved one, or ever got injured in a truck accident, if you answered yes for either of these questions then you should know that there are some parties whom might be liable for your losses, including the truck driver and their employer. However, there are still chances that the opposing parties will deny liability or fault for a crash. You can get help from our attorneys to find responsibility for your accident, and retrieve enough evidence to help ensure that compensation is given to the right party, and strengthen your claim.
After a given accident, the insurance company of the trucking company can and will start an investigation of the scene right away. These companies have specific and highly detailed procedures on how to handle the truck accident claims designed to restrict the time to recover from those injured in the accident. The trucking company’s insurance can do the following:
- Record statements from stand by witnesses
- Take pictures of the crash site
- Investigate the vehicles to determine the amount of damage was received from the collision
Authorities from the state may also launch an investigation of their own into the crash at this time, which can also prove valuable for your claim. Our attorneys will make sure to compliment the official investigation by assisting specialized experts in the right field. Our attorneys can help your case by reviewing the following:
- Camera footage
- Interviewing witnesses
- Review accident and police repot
- Analyze medical records
- Interview medical staff
Some parties could also be liable for any injuries sustained in a truck accident, including:
- Driver of the truck
- Driver’s employer
- Owner of truck
- Company whom leases the truck
- Manufacturer of truck
The attorney we have acquired experience handling such elaborate truck accident claims and cases and understand how to make clear which of the party members may, or may not, be responsible for your injuries caused by the truck accident. The attorneys associated with the claim may investigate the party that had primary custody of the vehicle during the collision by searching for the following:
- Driving records and logs
- Driving history of the vehicle
- Past violations
- Criminal convictions
- Maintenance records
Most likely the total cost of treating your injuries will exceed the amount that your PIP insurance covers, Personal Injury Protection. Your lawyer may need to engage in the insurance negotiations and maybe file a lawsuit for additional damage to collect the compensation for the remainder of your losses. Additionally, you might have the right to a wrongful death lawsuit, if you have lost a loved one in a truck accident.
Keeping a qualified attorney can also help to ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled.
