It is common to see trucks moving up and down I-94, as well as on many State Highways, and those large vehicles can pose a serious threat, if they aren’t operated correctly. The most cautious of drivers can quickly find themselves in a situation where nothing they can do will avoid a collision with one of those trucks. When such accidents occur, victims need a dedicated team on their side to fight for them.
Truck drivers are hardworking professionals trying their best to provide for themselves and their families. But the demands of the job can often pressure them to push beyond the limits of safety to get their load delivered on time. Reckless driving, speeding, faking logbooks, and driving well past the point of fatigue can create a situation where an accident with tragic consequences becomes more likely. Even when the driver is practicing the best safety measures, an improperly balanced load, poor vehicle maintenance, or a defect in manufacturing can result in a multiple ton truck traveling out of control at high speeds.
After an accident involving a truck, you are now facing medical bills, expenses for medication and prescriptions, loss of wages and time off work, costly vehicle repairs or vehicle replacement, and physical therapy. Victims of an accident involving a truck may also exhibit symptoms similar to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The fact that an accident has occurred is obvious, but proving why it occurred and who is to blame can be difficult and complex. As simple as the matter can seem to the victim, attorneys for the insurance company will try to muddy the waters and hope you’ll agree to an unreasonably low settlement. Our lawyers will work tirelessly to investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine exactly what happened. We will demand documentation, obtain witness statements, acquire video if it exists and piece together the full picture that led to your accident.
