Why You Should Contact A Lawyer
After an accident, the more time that passes, the more difficult it is to gather evidence from the crash scene and interview witnesses. Waiting to contact a lawyer makes it more difficult to build a strong case. In addition, you should always speak with a lawyer before you speak with an insurance representative. One of the main ways that insurance companies make money is by minimizing the amount of settlement checks. It is in their best interest to get you to sign a settlement agreement as fast as possible, often before the true extent of your injuries is known. To make sure you get the compensation you need, it always best to consult with a lawyer first.
The Unique Issues Of Trucking Accidents
Crashes involving semi trucks, tractor-trailers and commercial vehicles present challenges that passenger vehicle accidents do not. Trucking companies usually have a large, powerful legal team that gets to work immediately following any accident. Before you leave the hospital, they may already have people on the scene gathering evidence. There are also issues of third-party liability. In addition to the possibility that the driver was at fault, the accident may be attributable to negligence on the part of the truck manufacturer, the cargo loader or maintenance company.
In addition, the injuries suffered in collisions with these large vehicles are often catastrophic and sometimes fatal. Claims involving large trucks and commercial vehicles are more complex than accidents involving passenger vehicles and require an experienced attorney to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
