If you’ve been in an accident with a truck, chances are you’ve experienced significant personal injury and damage to your vehicle. Commercial trucks are large and heavy and bring with them a level of destruction not usually seen with automobile accidents. Truck accidents can be extremely complicated because of the many parties that may be involved and the fact that the trucking industry involves state and federal regulations.
That’s why it’s important to seek knowledgeable counsel if you’ve been in an accident with a truck. Attorney Ira Maurer of the Maurer Law Firm has the experience necessary to determine the extent of your case and take the necessary steps to hold the responsible parties accountable while pursuing fair compensation for any injuries and damages suffered.
Because of the complexities of this type of case, there are many facets to a truck accident lawsuit. The steps you can expect your attorney to follow include:
- Investigate the facts: This includes interviewing witnesses, requesting any evidence, taking pictures of the accident scene, obtaining police reports and medical records, researching backgrounds of potentially responsible individuals and companies.
- Research the law: We will determine if you will be able to choose the location of your lawsuit. You may be able to bring your suit to state or federal court.
- Talk to representatives of parties: We’ll speak with any representatives of the trucking company or its insurance company to make sure that you are not unfairly given a low settlement offer for your injuries.
- Represent you in court: If your case goes to trial, we’ll identify and include all individuals and companies that should be a part of the lawsuit and handle any attempts at delaying the case by the defendant while pursuing the maximum amount of compensation.
