How is fault proven in a trucking accident?
Determining liability, or fault, in a truck accident is very complex. There are often issues of third-party liability or the liability of a party other than you and the truck driver. It takes lawyers who have handled many trucking accident cases and know how to carefully investigate the scene and determine the at-fault party.
As a truck accident victim, what compensation may I be eligible to receive?
Because 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles are so large, the destruction to other motorists can prove severe. Some common damages include:
- Present and future medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Auto repairs
- Therapy costs
In a free consultation, you can ask our attorneys how much your case may be worth.
Why should I work with an attorney?
Trucking companies act quickly to cover their backs by hiring powerful lawyers, crime scene investigators and expert witnesses. You need to level the playing field by hiring legal counsel. A lawyer can ensure that you receive full and just compensation for your damages.
I lost a family member in a truck accident. What are my options?
You may have grounds for a wrongful death accident claim. This is when the deceased person’s personal representative files a lawsuit against the negligent party or parties. This can help you hold the perpetrator accountable for their actions and cover funeral costs and other damages.
