Commercial Truck Accidents
An accident with a commercial truck can result in a complicated situation. From physical injuries to taking on well-defended trucking companies, the process of earning compensation can be daunting and overwhelming. It is important to use a law firm with the type of trucking law experience needed to fully take on the complexities of a commercial trucking accident case.
There are numerous reasons commercial trucking accidents happen. From fatigue caused by long hours on the road to the driver’s use of prescription or over-the-counter drugs, some accidents occur due to the driver’s inability to perform their responsibilities adequately. Some accidents can occur as a result of braking issues or roadway problems. Other accidents may happen because of driving conditions and truck speed. It is important to consult an attorney immediately so that valuable evidence doesn’t disappear.
It may be difficult to determine what insurance benefits may be available to you. Trucking companies have various strategies to avoid taking responsibility for accidents they have caused and should be held responsible for. It is necessary to consider whether or not separate parties own the truck, the trailer is owned by one party and the tractor being owned by another. It is best to consult a truck accident law specialist to pin down exactly what happened and what type of compensation you ultimately deserve. Whether it is due to driver negligence, improper load placement, mechanical issues, or other reasons, your commercial trucking accident will be investigated extensively and developed into a solid case by our expert team at Carey Leisure & Neal.
Know Your Legal Rights
It is important to understand you have legal rights when involved in a commercial trucking accident. There will likely be many parties involved, including those involved in the accident as well as insurance companies. Once you are certain that you are physically out of harm’s way, it is best to quickly contact a law firm familiar with trucking accident law, like Carey Leisure & Neal.
Beyond informing police at the scene or your insurance company, you are not required to give any statements, including those to other insurance companies. Do not talk to the insurance company! Do not admit fault. Contact us as soon as possible to begin the accident investigation by your legal representation. If you are able, you can begin recording as much information as you can by safely taking pictures of vehicles, and obtaining the names and contact information of all parties involved. It is also important to connect with eyewitnesses who saw the accident take place and get their information. It is possible that they could have seen what led to the accident or how it was handled after it occurred. You may need that information immediately so don’t rely on the accident report to preserve a witness’ contact information.
