The truck carrier and their insurance company will immediately start building a case against you
No matter how nice they may seem, the fact of the matter is that both the trucking company and their insurance company are going to focus first and foremost on their own bottom line. Even if the truck driver was clearly at fault, they will be looking for ways to try and reduce your financial recovery. They may even try to deny the claim outright. This is why you need an attorney: We are hip to these tactics and can work to stop them in their tracks.
Trucking laws are more complex than you may realize
You may be surprised to learn just how complex truck accident law can be. Even if you are very familiar with the laws regarding car accidents, you are not necessarily prepared for this type of case. There are regulations involving how the truck is manufactured, maintained, and used on a daily basis. The driver must get a certain number of hours of rest per day – the regulations go on and on.
We can gather the necessary evidence
Evidence is critical to winning you a reasonable settlement or jury award. While you may know some of the evidence to uncover, we can assure that every possible shred of evidence is found. We know how to question witnesses and gain access to video footage from the surrounding area. We may hire an accident reconstruction expert, get road designs from the state, or pull the employment history, license status, and qualifications of the driver.
You may make serious errors
The claims adjuster you are working with is highly trained. Even if your claim is 100% factual and you intend to simply answers questions honestly, you may misword something, or something could be taken out of context that seriously impacts your case.
You get peace of mind
When you have a professional working on your side, you can set your mind at ease that your case is being handled by an experienced attorney. You have enough to worry about as you heal and recover from your injuries. Let us handle the legal aspects for you.
You do not pay anything upfront
