When you or your loved one has been severely injured in a truck accident, you will need an experienced truck accident attorney on your side to help you navigate the complicated legal process of recovering the compensation you deserve. Truck accidents present issues that don’t arise as often in car accidents.
1. Serious Injuries Sustained. Semi truck accidents often cause much more severe injuries than car accidents. It is not unusual for victims to sustain traumatic brain injuries or other serious injuries that require long-term medical care and reduce quality of life.
2. Exhausted Truck Drivers. Truck drivers are often on the road long hours before they rest, sometimes in violation of laws that require them to rest periodically.
3. Trucks That Haven’t Been Maintained. Trucks should be in good working order. If they have not been properly maintained and undergone regular inspection, the poor condition of the truck may have been a factor in your accident.
4. Liability of Other Parties. Truck drivers are usually working for a third party who may be held liable for your injuries. We can help you determine if that is the case.
