How Will An Attorney Benefit This Case?
Truck accidents are serious events and usually involve more parties than traditional car accidents. This can include multiple insurance carriers as well as legal teams for the trucking company. Your truck accident attorney will be the one to level the playing field and ensure you are treated fairly.
An attorney will gather all of the evidence necessary to prove the truck driver or company’s negligence. This includes:
Photo and video surveillance
Truck company and driver safety records
Your medical records
Proof of loss of income
Using this information, your attorney will negotiate with all parties to reach a settlement that will cover all of your expenses.
Truck Accidents Can Be Devastating
Accidents involving trucks tend to be much more devastating than regular passenger vehicle accidents. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) says that a fully loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. That is why it is not uncommon for an Ontario truck accident lawyer to see the following after a crash:
The FMCSA says that there were approximately 148,000 people injured and 4,761 people killed due to large truck accidents during the latest reporting year in the US. California has a large economy and plenty of large trucks on the roadways.
