There is no case too complex for our firm. Whether you’re going up against a multimillion-dollar company, a truck driver, or a commuter, we’re here to help you secure financial compensation.
Call (301) 812-4777 to speak with a truck accident attorney in Prince Frederick. You pay nothing unless we win your case!
How to Know if You Have a Case
Anyone can sue, but to actually win you’ll need a valid case. This means you will have to prove the following:
- The party at fault for the truck accident owed you a standard of care
- The party failed to deliver this standard, instead violating it with negligence
- That negligence was the root cause of the truck accident
- You suffered injuries in the truck accident, causing you to incur damages
If you can prove that all the above is “more likely than not” to be true, then you will be entitled to compensation. Proving it and getting the full amount owed to you are the tricky parts, however. To get the most out of your claim, work with a Prince Frederick truck accident attorney. We know how to litigate a case—we’ve helped thousands of clients over the years.
Finding Negligence in a Truck Accident Case
Since most tractor-trailers and other large trucks are driven by employees of truck companies, a truck accident case may involve negligence on the part of more than one party.
When a truck driver is negligent, for example, their employer is often liable for any accidents they cause. Generally, the only times they are not liable is if that employee/truck driver was acting against company policy or off the clock. An example would be if a truck driver went to a bar after their shift was over, then got behind the wheel while intoxicated. Sadly, driving under the influence remains a major cause of truck accidents.
Other common causes of truck accidents that are considered negligent include:
- Driving while distracted
- Driving a truck on roads where trucks are prohibited
- Hauling overloaded or unbalanced cargo
- Overworking truck drivers, or fatigued driving
- Failing to maintain trucks then letting employees take them on the road
- Failing to train employees, such as truckers and cargo loaders
- Defective truck parts or equipment, such as faulty brakes or worn tires
When you work with our team, we will launch a full investigation into your case to find who was negligent. Whether a truck company employee, truck parts manufacturer, or another motorist was at fault, we will fight to hold them accountable.
Compensation You May Be Entitled to
Since truck crashes tend to be of a very large scale, those injured are often entitled to hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation, such as for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Disability accommodations
No matter how much your case is worth, insurance companies will attempt to pay you less. Don’t let them get away with it—you deserve to be compensated for your full damages. We’ll work to improve your chances of recovering what’s owed to you.
