How a Truck Accident Attorney Helps You Win Against the Big Insurance Companies

Over the past decade, the number of fatal crashes caused by 18-wheelers has increased nearly 10%. Today, 12.5% or 1 out of every 8 traffic-related fatalities are caused by these large commercial trucks. Big-rigs or semis as they are oftentimes referred to, are responsible for 4% of all the injuries that result from these particular types of accidents. If this has happened to you or you have lost a loved one as a result of a crash involving a large commercial truck, a truck accident attorney who knows personal injury law can help you with your situation.

Working with a personal injury attorney who specializes in auto-truck accidents and knows the applicable laws is the recommended course of action if you or a loved one has been a victim of an accident of this type. They have the experience you need to fight the insurance companies who will most likely be working against you and trying to deny you the medical care and compensation that you deserve. The following are some of the factors that will come into play where your case is concerned.

Evaluation of Your Case

The first thing your truck accident attorney will address is the evaluation of your specific circumstances. They will work on uncovering the details of your case in order to determine all the facts they need for fighting the insurance companies that may be involved and who are not attempting to compensate you fairly for your injuries or the death of a loved one. They will gather all the facts they can in order to determine who is at fault in the case.

Case Precedents will be Considered

Once your attorney has evaluated your case as thoroughly as possible, he or she will do enough research to determine if there are prior cases that are similar to yours. Obviously, the purpose of doing that research is the same as the evaluation of your case (see above) – to determine whether or not the commercial trucking company was at fault for the actions of their driver.

In closing, statistics have shown that it is in the best interests of the client to settle their personal injury case before it goes to court. The right truck accident attorney will be able to defend your rights against the big insurance companies and get you the compensation and medical care that you deserve and need.
