If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident involving a truck, you may be able to file a legal claim. When you begin to file a legal claim, it’s important to seek out the assistance of an experienced truck accident lawyer.
A truck accident lawyer often deals solely with truck accident claims. Luckily, our skilled lawyers at the Buzbee Law Firm know what to do in accident cases such as these. Your injuries may be complicated, and your case may look complex; however, our truck accident lawyers are there for all your personal injury needs.
What Do Truck Accident Lawyers Do?
Truck accident lawyers are those who specialize in personal injury cases involving trucks. Usually, these lawyers will be sought out in order to represent those injured in cases where truck drivers acted in a negligent manner. They will know how to assess the accident scene, a trucking company’s legal team, and insurance claims specific to truck crashes.
Generally, truck injury lawyers work in tort law, which is considered private or civil law. It encompasses any invasions of legal rights that an individual suffers due to someone else’s negligence. Apart from truck crash cases, for example, tort law can also include:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Bus accidents
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Slip and fall accidents
Not all personal injury attorneys know how to handle commercial truck accidents, deal with corporate insurance adjusters, or manage a client’s catastrophic injuries.
We also understand that not everyone is knowledgeable on personal injury law, which is why our established lawyers can take hold of your case, guide you through the claims process, and give you the peace of mind you are looking for to rest and recover from your injuries.
How Can a Truck Accident Lawyer Help Your Case?
Because truck accident attorneys are trained in tort law, they have the skills and resources to find fault in a given accident, collect the necessary evidence for a case, and negotiate with various parties for maximum compensation.
When it comes to gathering evidence, lawyers will gather the following information:
- Photographic evidence from the scene of the crime
- Witness statements
- Camera footage from the accident
- Medical bills or ongoing medical treatment
- Vehicle damages
- Trucking company information
- Police report
When the evidence is collected, your lawyer can then speak with the various insurance companies of the parties involved to try and obtain compensation for your losses due to the semi-truck accident. Some say that the negotiation step is the most important part of an insurance claim. Luckily, our lawyers are fantastic at it.
We are well aware that insurance companies will always try to undermine the injuries and not give the highest amount of compensation that you are entitled to. Because of this, we can negotiate correctly on your behalf and make sure all laws and regulations are being followed and upheld when determining a compensation amount.
Types of Compensation Our Lawyers Can Win You
When it comes to compensation for truck wrecks, our lawyers can assist you in claiming various types of damages. Because these types of accidents fall under tort law, we can help you to claim compensation for your economic losses, non-economic losses, and in some cases, even punitive damages.
We can help you collect various types of compensatory damages sustained, which can include:
- Current medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Any lost wages that stem from your injuries
- Bills from vehicle damage
- Physical pain and suffering
- Wrongful death, if applicable
- Any emotional distress you have experienced
It’s important to note that the compensation amount you can be rewarded will depend solely on your injuries, theseverity of the truck accident, and the amount of evidence that you and your lawyer collected for your case.
