Get Legal Help from Attorneys who Specialize in Truck Accidents
While many car accidents are serious, truck accidents tend to be particularly devastating. Because of the size, weight, and force that a truck applies during a collision, the outcome is often life threatening or fatal for victims of these crashes. The costs of a truck accident can be significantly higher than the costs of a car accident, and it’s important to obtain legal representation as soon as possible after a crash for many reasons.
Truck drivers are subject to different laws and restrictions when compared to drivers of motor vehicles, and failure to understand these key differences can potentially compromise a case for compensation later on. For example, a trucking company has the right to delete or destroy logs and recorded information on the truck’s Electronic Control Module, meaning that without a motion to preserve this evidence, it could be lost. These records could provide clues into how many hours the driver was working consecutively, if the driver was speeding, and other critical components of determining fault for the collision.
It is in the best interest of you and your loved ones to consult with a seasoned lawyer as soon as possible regarding your case in order to begin gathering pertinent evidence that will be used to support your claim for the maximum compensation available in your case.
Get the Justice You and Your Loved Ones Deserve
If you’re seeking damages after a truck accident, either for yourself or on the behalf of an injured loved one, be prepared to go up against an aggressive legal team. Trucking companies will often attempt to get the upper hand in an accident case, even going so far as to deploy their attorneys to scour the accident scene for ways to pin fault on the driver of the motor vehicle. Having an experienced attorney who understands the uniqueness of truck accidents and the surrounding laws is a valuable asset to you and is critical to the ultimate outcome of your case.
