Not all motor vehicle accidents are alike. Accidents involving trucks often produce devastating and life-altering injuries due to their size, weight, and the force with which they can potentially strike. As a result, you might be facing exorbitant medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and many other damages that can be attributed to the accident. Additionally, truck accidents are often much more complex than most motor vehicle accidents due to the fact that more than one party can be held liable for your injuries. As such, having an experienced truck accident attorney on your side is critical to ensure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
Below are some reasons why you need to hire a truck accident attorney to handle your case:
- Discovering the liable parties: You might think that only the truck driver can be held liable for a truck accident. After all, he or she was the one behind the wheel. However, the truck driver is not the only party who can be held liable. The truck driver’s employer, the owner of the truck, the truck manufacturer, the company that loaded cargo onto the truck, the entity that leased the truck, and even government entities could be held liable for a truck accident. An attorney who is experienced in handling such cases will be able to collect crucial evidence that can help determine who can be held liable for the accident.
- Dealing with large insurance companies: With multiple parties involved, your attorney will more than likely have to deal with many attorneys who represent large insurance companies and corporations who are working diligently to poke holes in your claim to reduce compensation. On your own, it is near impossible to stand a chance. With an attorney how is skilled in the negotiation process and has done this many times before, you could recover the damages you deserve.
- Knowledge of trucking laws and regulations: The trucking industry is heavily regulated, but if you have no knowledge of these laws and regulations, you will not be able to hold the responsible parties accountable for any violations they committed which led to the accident. An attorney, however, will have an in-depth knowledge of these laws and regulations.
Ultimately, there is no substitute for the kind of guidance you will receive from a skilled and experienced truck accident attorney. Moreover, you are likely trying to recover from the injuries you sustained and are already extremely overwhelmed. Having an attorney fight for you will help take this burden off your shoulders, so you can focus on what matters – getting back on your feet.
