Truck Accident Cases We Handle
Truck accidents are some of the most complicated personal injury cases, because they involve a number of variables and a greater volume of evidence. Even a truck accident that may appear to be the fault of the driver might actually be the fault of the trucking company. Trucking is a highly regulated industry, with requirements about how cargo must be loaded, how often maintenance must be done, how much drivers need to rest, and more. If, for example, a driver fell asleep at the wheel and caused your accident, it may actually be the employer’s fault for requiring them to drive too many hours.
In order to get to the bottom of your accident and determine who was ultimately responsible, you will have to sift through a massive amount of evidence. Trucks are equipped with a black box that constantly monitors the truck’s activity, including speed and braking. Understanding what this evidence means and how it connects to your case is complicated, but it’s something an injury lawyer can do.
Hiring a lawyer is your best bet for recovering maximum compensation after a truck accident. Only an accident attorney will be able to negotiate with aggressive truck company lawyers and insurance agents, understand the evidence, and make a compelling claim for your compensation. They will be able to determine whether your truck accident was caused by:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving, including speeding
- Ignoring rules of the road, including making illegal turns or ignoring stop lights
- Improperly loaded or overweight cargo
- Inadequate maintenance
- Malfunctioning parts
- Employer negligence
These are only some of the ways a truck driver, trucking company, maintenance company, or truck manufacturer can cause a truck accident. If you know or even suspect that your accident was not your fault, contact The Law Offices of David Golden, P.A. to learn more about your legal options.
