Why You Need a Truck Accident Lawyer
Attempting to handle a catastrophic truck accident case on your own will likely lead to accepting less than your case is worth. Trucking companies and their insurance providers are notorious for trying to evade liability for accidents. The best way to protect your rights and force an insurer to take your claim seriously is with help from an attorney. Our lawyers have years of experience going up against these entities in pursuit of fair and just case results. Using an attorney could force the defendant to offer a more reasonable settlement amount.
Why Do Truck Accidents Happen in Meridian?
Every year, thousands of fatal traffic accidents involve large trucks. The size and heavy weight of commercial trucks make them extremely dangerous in collisions. They can exert forces on smaller vehicles that cause catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain damage. Recognizing who or what caused your recent truck accident is one of the first steps toward achieving justice.
- Negligent truck drivers
- Truck driver distraction
- Drowsy driving
- Broken state or federal laws
- Unsafe lane changes
- Blind spots
- Lost cargo loads
- Truck equipment breakdowns
- Vehicle defects
- Dangerous roads
If the trucking company contributed to your accident, it could be liable for your damages. If a truck driver or an employee of the trucking company caused the crash, the company could be vicariously liable. Other potential defendants depending on the facts of your case could include cargo companies, truck manufacturers or the City of Meridian.
What Damages Could You Recover?
Achieving justice and closure from a trucking company or another party responsible for your accident can help you move forward with peace of mind. One of the main reasons to pursue a claim, however, is for financial compensation. The defendant may legally owe you a financial award for several damage types.
- Health care costs
- Disability expenses
- Income losses
- Pain and suffering
- Rental car
- Vehicle repair or replacement
- Attorney’s fees
- Punitive damages
