Time Is of the Essence After a Serious Truck Accident
No doubt you have a lot on your plate after being injured in a crash. You may be facing several weeks or months of rehabilitation. If you’re unable to work in the meantime, you might be searching for ways to stay afloat financially until the resolution of your claim. With so many concerns to address, it’s easy for calling an attorney to fall on the back burner. But as more time passes, there will be a greater chance that time-sensitive evidence will become unavailable.
Key evidence of liability may include dashcam and surveillance footage, black box data, and driver logs. At some point, video footage of the crash will likely be overwritten. Also, motor carriers are only required to keep black box data for a few months, and it’s not unheard of for truck drivers and their employers to alter driving logs to cover up evidence of negligence.
To give your case the best chance of success, your Costa Mesa truck accident lawyer will want to begin the investigation right away. Besides gathering evidence, taking immediate action could also prevent you from missing the lawsuit filing deadline. And if several days pass before eyewitnesses are interviewed, they might forget key details about the crash.
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we keep our phone line open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We know how important it is to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation so all available evidence can be compiled. We will get to work right away and will tirelessly build your claim so we have the strongest case possible when the settlement negotiations begin.
We always prepare for the initial negotiations as if we are going to trial, leaving no stone unturned in our search for key evidence. Our goal in most cases is to win a fair settlement without having to file a lawsuit. This not only could reduce the duration of the proceedings but also might increase your net recovery by avoiding the costs of litigation. But at the end of the day, if the insurance company or defendant refuses to pay a fair settlement, filing a lawsuit and proceeding to litigation might be the best option—and we won’t hesitate to take your case all the way to trial if it’s in your best interests to do so.
We Have a History of Success in Catastrophic Injury Cases
It goes without saying that truck accidents involve tremendous force due to the vehicle’s size and weight. As a result, it is common for the injuries sustained in these collisions to be catastrophic—especially for the occupants of smaller vehicles.
Auto accidents are a leading cause of brain trauma, spinal cord damage, and other disabilities. Claims involving long-term or permanent injuries are not the same as claims involving minor wounds. Insurance companies have more incentive to put up a fight when there’s a lot of money on the line. Also, calculating the value of a catastrophic injury claim can be more complicated since the non-economic damages tend to be extensive, and victims are often entitled to future damages.
Our truck accident attorneys in Costa Mesa have extensive experience winning substantial settlements and verdicts in catastrophic injury cases. We know the kinds of evidence needed to build your claim, and we work closely with medical and financial experts who can assist with the settlement calculations. We also understand how to get the most value out of expert witness deposition should your case proceed to discovery. Our reputation as tough litigators often works in our client’s favor during settlement negotiations because it makes insurance companies think twice about refusing to cooperate. As a client of our law firm, you can rest assured that we will do everything in our power to help you pursue the full compensation you deserve.
