After an accident involving a semi-truck, experienced legal representation can be essential

There are so many different ways a lawyer can help you if you have been involved in a truck accident. Some of the ways an attorney can help you include:

  • Explain your legal options so you can make informed decisions about your truck accident, including whether to accept a settlement offer or file a truck accident lawsuit.
  • Conduct an in-depth, independent investigation of your truck accident rather than simply relying on insurance companies, which often have a vested interest in the outcome of your case.
  • Obtain a copy of your official accident report and review it carefully with you to make sure it’s accurate.
  • Deal directly with insurance companies and trucking companies on your behalf so you can focus on getting the medical care you need to recover.
  • Negotiate the best possible settlement offer with the truck driver’s insurance company or the trucking company on your behalf.
  • Obtain evidence from the trucking company, including the truck driver’s Hours of Service (HOS) records.
  • File a truck accident lawsuit in the appropriate court on your behalf.
  • Represent you in court if your truck accident lawsuit goes to trial.
