How to Proceed with Your Truck Accident Claim
Because business entities will be involved in these cases, there will be significant pressure on all parties to skew the facts and minimize liability. If you were involved in the accident, it is advised that you do not speak with the insurance adjuster. The conversation may be recorded, and your words will be used against you.
It's also recommended that you retain legal representation as soon as possible. You have a limited amount of time to pursue your truck accident case before losing your right to compensation. Critical evidence and eye-witnesses must be identified, located and studied very quickly.
How We Can Help
Truck accidents are much more challenging cases to work than car accident cases. In a trucking case, we fight against a trucking company as opposed to an individual driver. Often, truck drivers do not get enough sleep and trucking companies keep their drivers on the road too long. A sleepy truck driver under the stress of constant delivery deadlines is a recipe for disaster.
To understand the issues in a truck accident case, scientific and mechanical expertise may be required of the lawyer. As an engineer and a lawyer, T.O. Sanders is uniquely qualified to help you. We are prepared to argue your case in court and illustrate clear and compelling causation between the actions of the driver or trucking company and your injuries. Because we take on injury cases on a contingency basis, our clients are never charged any legal fees until we secure a financial recovery.
Our goal is twofold: 1) to maximize your recovery and 2) to provide personalized service. Contact us to request a consultation.
