Big Rigs. Semi-trailers. Commercial Trucks. Whatever you call them, chances are good that you see them on the road every day. Certainly, these big trucks play an important role in today’s economy. Unfortunately, they can also be dangerous—as anyone who has been involved in a truck accident knows all too well.
If you are the victim of a truck accident that wasn’t your fault, you should know that you have rights under the law, and you are entitled to assert those rights.
A Morgan & Morgan attorney can walk you through the process, step-by-step. As America’s largest personal injury law firm and with 800 attorneys nationwide, we have the resources to take on the insurance companies of large trucks and fight for every penny you deserve.
What Does a Truck Accident Claim Look Like?
Of course, every claim will vary slightly depending upon the unique circumstances of the case. Generally, however, truck accident claims involve:
- Seeking and receiving necessary medical treatment: This should certainly be the first step you take after an accident. Your health and well-being come first. Do not delay seeking the care that you need.
- Finding and hiring a knowledgeable and experienced truck accident attorney: The importance of this step cannot be overstated. Having a Morgan & Morgan attorney on your side who knows and understands the law can make all the difference in your case.
- Gathering necessary evidence to prove negligence and determine the party who is liable for the accident and injuries: In truck accident claims, in particular, there can be many liable parties—not only the driver but also potentially the company owning the truck, the insurer, the company responsible for loading and maintaining the truck, and others. Investigating and determining the responsible parties is a critical part of the case.
- Attempting to negotiate a settlement: Often in these cases, with the right legal team at your side, it is possible to reach a settlement without having to incur the time and expense of going to trial.
- Filing a lawsuit if necessary: In other cases, a settlement cannot be reached for any number of reasons, and it will be necessary to take your case to trial. Morgan & Morgan’s trial-ready attorneys are uniquely equipped to bring your case into the courtroom if necessary.
- Reaching a settlement or going to trial and receiving a verdict: Ultimately, your case will be resolved either through a settlement before trial or in a verdict awarded by the court.
Every claim is different, but depending upon your circumstances, you may be entitled to a variety of damages in varying amounts. You need a legal team on your side to help you fight for everything you deserve. At Morgan & Morgan, we are that team.
