What Can An Attorney Do For You After A Truck Accident?

Truck accidents are known to cause devastating injuries to people. However, how aggressively trucking companies fight claims against their business is less well known. A lawyer can take on the legal challenges to let you focus on your health.

Why Are Truck Accidents Such Difficult Cases?

The simple answer to this question is “money.” Trucking companies are all in the business of making money, and a truck accident claim makes that more difficult. They are so expensive because the injuries are more severe. They will do anything to minimize your claim.

Trucking companies often try to “work with you” to resolve the compensation matters. They will launch an immediate, intensive investigation that usually includes several conversations with you. In these conversations, they may imply that you were at fault for the accident or that your injuries aren’t “worth” as much as the claim says. These are arguments designed to discourage you from pursuing what you deserve.

Types Of Commercial Vehicle Accidents

It is worth acknowledging that there is more than one type of commercial vehicle on the road. Technically, a commercial vehicle can include:

  • Delivery trucks
  • Semi trucks; 18-wheelers; tractor trailers
  • Construction vehicles
  • Buses

These are large, highly powerful vehicles owned by organizations with many resources. Truck companies and their insurers are big business and these organizations are ready to fight every claim against them. You need an attorney who can match them.
