What Should I Do If I am Involved in a Truck Accident?
Going up against large trucking companies and insurance agencies can be a daunting task, especially when you’re injured. Let us support you in investigating your legal recourse to obtain compensation and ensure that the other party does not deny fault and liability for their negligence in the accident.
What Factors Influence My Truck Accident Case?
Our attorneys work in close proximity to experts specializing in the investigations of trucking accidents. The trucking company involved will immediately contact their insurance company to begin a thorough investigation of the crash, and our attorneys will be ready to perform their own in-depth investigation, involving camera footage, witness testimonials, reviews of police, accident and medical records as well as potential reconstruction of the accident scene.
It is important to understand the potentially liable parties involved in a truck accident, which may include:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The truck owner
- The company leasing the truck
- The owner of a trailer
- The manufacturer of the truck and/or trailer
Trucking accidents can be complex cases, and to ascertain liability, our attorneys use a variety of investigative elements such as:
- Custody of the vehicle at the time of accident
- Thorough records and driving logs
- Communications between drivers and owners
- Maintenance records
- Manufacturing defects
- Criminal history of driver, employer and company
- Violations of state and federal trucking and driving laws
Why Do I Need a Truck Accident Attorney?
It is uncommon for a victim’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance to provide sufficient coverage for injuries resulting from a trucking accident, so obtaining necessary compensation may require negotiations with insurance companies. Depending on their cooperation, it may be appropriate to file a lawsuit in order to cover further damages.
Truck accidents can be extreme and result in significant injury and damage. These may include trauma to the head, neck and spinal cord, amputation, burns and scarring, broken bones, internal injuries, paralysis and even death. Once the “injury threshold” of an individual’s PIP has been exceeded, your personal injury attorney can assist you in obtaining further compensation.
Different Types of Truck Accident Cases
Truck accidents fall under a variety of categories, such as negligence on behalf of the truck operator, from product liability in the form of a manufacturer’s defect and wrongful death, where there is a fatality as a result of another person’s reckless actions. Compensation for damages and injuries that result from a truck accident are generally split into either economic or non-economic categories. Punitive damages are also administered in some cases.
Types of Damages from a Truck Accident
When damages resulting from a truck accident are determined to be economic, they represent monetary losses in the form of current and/or ongoing medical expenses such as hospitalization and surgical procedures. They can also represent a loss in wages and the victim’s inability to earn an income as a result of their injuries. Less tangible losses fall under the category of non-economic damages and may include pain and suffering as a result of the accident as well as mental and emotional distress or loss of marital benefits (consortium).
In the case of a defendant’s actions being deemed malicious in intent, resulting in the severe injury or wrongful death of another, punitive damages may also be appropriate.
