Truck Accident Attorneys in Frederick

Fighting for Injured Individuals Harmed by Negligence

Were you injured in a truck accident resulting from another party’s negligence and/or carelessness? You should not have to take full responsibility for another’s actions; in fact, the law grants you the right to hold the at-fault party liable for any harm they caused to you. With the help of a lawyer, you can give your case and yourself a strong fighting chance, potentially winning you compensation for your injuries.

Our attorneys at Alpert Schreyer Poe want to help you in your legal battle for justice. We have helped individuals injured in truck accidents pursue claims through the civil justice system for more than three decades. These claims can become easily complicated, as these accidents usually involve multiple parties: the truck drivers themselves, the trucking company they work for, and their employer’s insurance company. You do not have to stand up to them alone. Let our renowned attorneys help.

Am I Eligible to File a Truck Accident Claim?

Truck accident claims focus on crashes involving big rigs, 18-wheelers, semitrucks, or other large trucks. No matter the vehicles involved, if the accident you were injured in was caused by the negligence of another party, you will be eligible to take legal action.

To win a claim and recover damages, you will need to prove in a court of law that the party was truly negligent in their actions, that this negligence breached a duty of care they had to you, and that it caused you harm.

Since truck drivers are expected to adhere to traffic laws and drive with care, the following acts are considered negligent:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted or fatigued driving
  • Hauling an oversized load
  • Driving a poorly maintained or outdated truck
  • Ignoring traffic laws and safety regulations
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or other mind-altering substances

In some cases, the trucking company may to blame. For instance, if they only provided workers with improperly maintenanced trucks, required drivers to work inhumane schedules leading to fatigued driving, failed to adequately train their employees, then they could be the one liable for the accident. Similarly, manufacturers that sell (and falsely market) defective truck parts can be held liable for any accident that is explicitly caused by that defect.

All the above forms of negligence can be difficult to prove on your own. A lawyer can assist in uncovering the true root cause of the accident and ensure that the court considers the evidence against a negligent party attempting to deny or minimize their responsibility in the matter.

Qualifying Injuries and Potential Compensatory Damages

Some common examples of injuries resulting from truck accidents that individuals file claims for include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Traumatic orthopedic injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Partial or full paralysis
  • Loss of a limb or limbs
  • Bumps and bruises
  • Cuts and lacerations

The compensatory damages awarded will hinge on the severity of your injuries. Often, plaintiffs are compensated for medical expenses, short- or long-term disability accommodations, lost wages resulting from mandatory time off work, pain and suffering, and/or mental trauma.

Attempting to trudge through the civil justice system is likely the last thing you want to do when you are dealing with injuries sustained in a truck accident, but recovering compensation can be hugely beneficial: It can pay for the medical care you need to heal and assist you in staying on top of bills suddenly rendered insurmountable due to missed work. Luckily, our lawyers can help simplify and expedite the legal process, staying at your side every step of the way.
