Benefits of Hiring a Truck Accident Lawyer With Experience 

Truck accident cases are complex, often involving multiple parties, making self-representation a challenging endeavor. The right attorney is one who can make this endeavor less challenging. 

For example, experienced attorneys know how to counter what trucking companies will do. Those companies tend to deploy extensive defenses, working closely with insurers to minimize compensation for victims.

Moreover, the right attorney can make sure to bring a case against all parties liable for your injury. In a truck accident, various entities, including but not limited to the driver, trucking company, leasing company, cargo loader, truck manufacturer, and more, could be at fault. An experienced attorney knows how to navigate this complexity to ensure comprehensive compensation.

The Root Causes of Truck Accidents

Given the immense weight of trucks, often reaching around 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, accidents involving these vehicles can result in severe damage compared to typical car accidents.

Truck accidents can stem from various factors, including fatigue, distracted driving, driving under the influence, excessive speed, improperly maintained trucks, defects in the truck, improper loading, and environmental factors.

When someone else’s negligence has led to you or yours being injured, you should be compensated for it. That’s where Belal comes in. Regardless of the specific circumstances of your truck accident, our firm is dedicated to properly supporting our clients.

Immediate Steps to Take After a Truck Accident

Quick action is important after any accident, but it might be even more important after a truck accident. The steps to take include: 

  1. Remove Yourself from Harm’s Way: Do so as much as you can, safely.
  2. Call the Police: Regardless of the apparent severity, involve the police to document the incident.
  3. Seek Medical Treatment: Even if you feel fine initially, professional medical assessment is vital, as internal injuries may not be immediately apparent.
  4. Collect Evidence: If feasible, document injuries, vehicle damage, and relevant environmental factors through photographs and video.
  5. Obtain Information: Gather contact and insurance details from the other party involved, and if applicable, collect information from witnesses.

Once you’ve done all of that, then we recommend you reach out to us. 

Partial Fault in Truck Accidents

Even if you share partial fault, you can still pursue damages under comparative negligence rules. Your recovery may be proportionally reduced based on your degree of fault. So, if you were 25% at fault, you could recover 75% of the compensation you would have received. 

Our team works diligently to identify all responsible parties, placing liability where it rightfully belongs.
