      Which Truck Accidents Qualify for a Claim?

      For clarification, the term “large trucks” includes big rigs, semitrucks, 18-wheelers, flatbeds, tractor-trailers, and the like. Therefore, any preventable crash that involved these trucks and led to injury is likely to qualify for a truck accident claim. You will need to prove the following to win your claim:
      • The at-fault party owed a standard of care to you;
      • This duty of care was breached by an act of negligence; and
      • You sustained an injury from this lapse of care.
      While this may seem simple enough, many truck drivers, their employers, and/or insurance agents will be reluctant to admit fault and take legal, financial responsibility. Hiring an attorney is a step in the right direction, as they can prevent you from being taken advantage of and ensure that you receive a fair payout to cover any associated damages. A few examples of negligence on the part of another driver include:
      • Driving under the influence
      • Distracted driving
      • Fatigued driving
      • Hauling oversized loads
      • Driving a defective truck
      • Ignoring road safety regulations
      • Ignoring traffic laws
      Other examples of negligence include when a trucking company fails to adequately train their drivers or requires them to work long hours, increasing the risk of falling asleep behind the wheel. In addition, a manufacturer who sells defective parts, especially if they misrepresent them as safe, may be held liable for any resulting accidents.

      Common Crash Injuries

      Injuries that are likely to qualify for a claim include but are not limited to:
      • Lacerations
      • Head injuries
      • Orthopedic injuries
      • Traumatic brain injuries
      • Internal bleeding or hemorrhaging
      • Bumps, bruises, and abrasions
      • Broken or fractured bones
      • Spinal cord injuries
      • Amputations
      A successful legal claim concerning one or more of these injuries may obtain you compensatory damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses, property damage (e.g. to your vehicle), lost wages, and any other related costs.

      Speaking to the Insurance Company After an Accident

      Ideally you should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer before agreeing to speak with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. A qualified attorney can provide you with valuable input and assistance in order to protect your rights. However, should you decide to speak to the at-fault driver’s insurance company without first consulting with a personal injury lawyer you should be aware that, first and foremost, the job of an insurance company is to maximize their profits by minimizing payouts. They may use anything you say as a reason to deny your claim. For this reason, it is very important that you refuse to allow the insurance company to record your conversation. Be brief, concise and careful when speaking to any insurance company and do not accept responsibility for the crash at any time. Such admissions can put your claim in jeopardy. It is also important to note you could be waiving your right to compensation if you sign any document sent to you by an insurance company following an accident.

      What to Do After a Truck Accident

      After the accident occurs, document the scene and what happened. Always remember to refrain from admitting fault, even if the other driver is pressuring you to do so. Since most truck accidents result in blocked roadways and substantial property damage, you will likely need to contact the police for assistance, as well as to file an official report. It is very advisable to visit a medical professional for your injuries and receive the appropriate treatment immediately. The longer you wait, the worse your condition may get. Additionally, the at-fault party may use any gap between the accident and the doctor’s visit to dispute your claim.

      Lay Down a Strong Foundation for Your Case

      To give yourself a good chance at winning your claim, it is best to start with a strong foundation. That is why it is integral that you consult a lawyer as soon as possible. You should not speak to the trucking company or their insurance agents without a lawyer present because they may take your words out of context and use them against you in a court of law. They may seem friendly, but their top priority is their job, meaning they will often do anything they legally can to deny or minimize your claim.

      The attorney’s and paralegals are incredible. They are truly committed to understanding your case and serving you. However, I’ve personally worked with Mr. Berman and Mrs. Bowman through my entire process! I am so grateful for their passion, dedication, and professionalism. I haven’t worked with many attorney’s in the past, but I’m glad you all were recommended to me. You all are truly the best. Thank you so much!
