How Harris Personal Injury Lawyers Helps After a Truck Wreck
After a truck accident, the truck driver will call their employer and insurer. The insurer will immediately send investigators to the site to take photos and videos and gather physical evidence. This prompt response would put you at a disadvantage, especially if you were seriously injured and taken to the emergency room right away.
The truck driver and trucking company’s insurer is immediately prepared to handle your claim, but it may take you days or weeks to get started. We recommend calling a Fullerton truck accident lawyer to address this disparity. Just because it seems like the other side has an advantage does not mean you cannot win fair compensation for your injuries.
Our seasoned truck accident attorneys are here to help you obtain the maximum compensation possible for your injuries. We do this by immediately beginning a thorough investigation.
We will gather the police report and any available photos and videos of the crash and its aftermath. We will reach out to all eyewitnesses we are aware of and get their statements regarding what they saw and heard.
We may recommend filing a lawsuit a soon as possible. A great deal of evidence that can influence your claim is under the truck driver, trucking company, and other business’s control. Only through the discovery process during litigation can be force these other parties to turn the evidence over to use.
During discovery, we will obtain the vehicle inspection and maintenance records, the truck driver’s electronic data logs (EDL), the trucks electronic data recorder’s (EDR) data, the bills of lading regarding the cargo, dash-cam footage, the truck driver’s employment records, and more.
We scrutinize every piece of evidence to help build your claim for compensation. We also may hire various experts to support your case further.
Who May be Liable for Compensating You for Your Injuries?
You may assume that the trucking company will be liable for your injuries, and in many cases, this is true. However, the trucking company is not always the liable party.
Depending on the circumstances, we may pursue all or a part of your compensation from the truck driver, the maintenance provider, the cargo owner, the business responsible for loading the truck, a vehicle or part manufacturer, or a government agency.
We will discover who and what caused the truck accident and your injuries through our in-depth investigation. The information we uncover will determine who is liable and where we focus our claim.
