To Protect Yourself, You Must Act Quickly
If you have been injured in a truck accident, it is important that you act quickly. To comply with federal laws, truck companies and truck drivers must maintain extensive records of their activities. This information can prove invaluable when pursuing personal injury claims. However, this information only has to be maintained for a limited amount of time. If you don’t act promptly, the records may be lost forever.
Our Approach to Handling Truck Accidents
We will thoroughly investigate the legal claims related to your truck accident. We will contact potential witnesses, visit the accident scene, review company records and examine company protocol to determine whether the company or driver was negligent. We will verify that the truck was in compliance with state and federal law, and look for evidence of mechanical defects, inattention, alcohol, driver negligence or improper loading.
Truck accident cases are often more complex than other types of motor vehicle accidents. In many cases, the tractor and the trailer have different owners and different insurance companies. Liability may be divided between a negligent driver and a negligent trucking company. There may be insufficient insurance coverage, and you may have to bring an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim against your own insurance company.
With more than 20 years of experience handling complex personal injury matters, we can effectively address these complicated liability issues. We will pursue every avenue of recovery for your injuries.
