Benefits of a truck accident lawyer
An experienced truck accident lawyer is crucial to the success of your case. Damage to other cars and property can be extremely high, and multiple insurance carriers may be involved. Liability can also be challenging to prove. That’s why choosing an attorney with experience in handling truck accident cases is crucial. At our firm, we know the ropes and will guide you through the process.
Truck drivers are found liable every day for accidents involving their vehicles. In some cases, the truck driver is fully responsible for the crash; sometimes, they are only partially liable. The very nature of truck driving poses significant demands on the driver, which can, in turn, lead to poor decision-making.
Common causes of truck crashes as the result of driver negligence:
Operating the vehicle under the influence.
Operating both the truck and a cell phone or other device simultaneously.
Our knowledge and experience allows us to put together the best possible case for making all responsible parties accountable!
If an insurance company denies your claim and we are forced to go to trial, we will implement an expert strategy and the necessary resources required to win your case.
Distracted driving is a common problem. It is responsible for 80% of crashes and 65% of near-crashes. Truck accidents are extremely hazardous if drivers are at the wheel when they are overly tired or while talking on their cell phones or texting. Just glancing away from the road for two seconds can double your risk of an accident. Often, distracted driving can result in serious injuries.
If you were a victim of a distracted driving accident and sustained a serious injury, to pursue compensation you may want to take photographs of the accident scene and speak to any witnesses. These photographs can provide physical proof of the accident and help your case. In addition, you should talk to your truck accident attorney immediately after the incident so that they can properly evaluate your case.
If you’re in an accident involving a distracted driver, it’s critical to hire an experienced attorney to represent you. An attorney can subpoena crucial evidence relevant to the cause of the accident, including the truck driver’s cell phone records and/or online activities as well as the truck’s electronic data recorder to show if they were distracted while driving.
