- Don't provide details to your insurance company before speaking with a skilled attorney
Injuries, Damages, & Fault in Truck Accident Cases
If you have been in a truck accident, you may be experiencing serious injuries, such as paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, multiple fractures, or worse. These can create a number of painful damages such as lost wages, hefty medical costs, loss of employability and job opportunities, and even worse—loss of life. There are a number of potential causes of truck accidents
- Lack of appropriate training and licensure by the driver (i.e. negligent hiring practices)
- Trucking companies forcing drivers to drive early in the morning or late at night
- Delayed or improper reaction to roadway conditions by the driver
- Defective, poorly designed, or damaged truck parts
- Use of illegal or prescription drugs while driving
- Drunk, drowsy, or distracted driving
- Poorly maintained roadways
- Bad weather
Regardless of the reason for your truck accident, you are going to need help recovering the funds you need to afford rehabilitation, surgery, medication, and other injury-related costs.
