How a Lawyer Can Help You with Your Truck Accident Case

Legal issues surrounding big rig crashes may be challenging due to the state and federal regulations that oversee the trucking industry. Moreover, the damages in these collisions tend to be greater because of the overwhelming size, weight, and momentum of semi-trucks. An injury attorney can assist clients with their commercial truck accident cases by:

  • Provide Support and Guidance: A big rig crash may be traumatic and life-changing for the injured party and their family. An attorney understands this all too well and will be there to provide clients with the guidance and support they need to make informed decisions about their commercial truck accident case.
  • Conduct an Investigation: A skilled California trucking accident attorney can conduct a thorough investigation into the incident to properly determine who was responsible for the crash, including the truck driver, trucking company, third-party loading company, big rig parts manufacturer, and other parties that may have contributed to it. A lawyer will also ensure that letters of preservation of evidence are sent to the other side immediately.
  • Negotiations with Insurers: The right big rig crash lawyer will have the experience, knowledge, and resources to build a strong and compelling case to ensure that their clients receive maximum financial recovery for their injuries and losses. An attorney will negotiate with insurance carriers and defense counsel to make that possible.
  • Take the Case to Court: Not all commercial truck accident cases result in a mutual settlement agreement in favor of the client. When this occurs, a California accident attorney will file the matter in civil court to protect the statute of limitations and litigate the case. The lawyer will prepare the case to present in front of a judge or jury if that becomes necessary.
