Extreme suffering and loss can occur as a result of trucking accidents, whether involving motorists, passengers or pedestrians. Even though unsafe roads, mechanical failure, or defective vehicles can cause accidents, most accidents result from driver irresponsibility—cell phone distractions, drowsiness, drunk driving, not watching the road, etc. Often in trucking accidents the owner of the trucking company has been negligent in hiring unqualified or irresponsible drivers, pushing the drivers to drive longer than is reasonable or safe or failing to train or monitor their drivers such that the driver is not driving safely. Driving a big rig is dangerous and requires much more skill and attention than driving a normal automobile. Because establishing fault can be complicated and more than one party may be responsible, it is wise to involve a truck accident lawyer in your case as soon as possible. Even if you are partially at fault for the accident, you still may be entitled to compensation for damages.
When involved in a motor vehicle accident, your life changes in an instant. If you have suffered serious injury, challenges that lie ahead may seem overwhelming. Normal life falls by the wayside, and while struggling in pain, you are left with medical bills, no income, often your car has been totaled, and you have no way to get around.
This is the time to hire a personal injury lawyer.
A personal injury lawyer will: 1. Take charge of your case, 2. Handle the insurance companies, 3. Make sure your medical bills are paid. 4. Obtain a financial recovery to recompense you for all your losses including your suffering.
