Truck Accidents

The weight and size of commercial trucks means that when they encounter a car, the driver and passengers of the smaller vehicle are at a severe disadvantage, the potential risk for injury in a truck wreck is high.

Crashes can result in many different types of injuries, ranging from broken bones to catastrophic and potentially permanent impairments like traumatic brain injuries, internal injuries, and spinal cord damage leading to paralysis.

Truck accident victims tend to suffer serious injuries and extensive vehicle damage. Because their financial costs may be great, injured parties may want to pursue legal action against the truck driver or trucking company to recover their losses.

Immediately after a truck accident, a claims adjuster from the truck driver’s commercial insurance company may contact you. You should never speak to a claims adjuster without consulting with a lawyer first. A claims adjuster might come across as friendly, but it’s important to remember that this person’s goal is to settle your claim for as little money as possible. The agent might try to get you to say things that ultimately hurt your claim.  To protect your rights, there are many reasons it is wise to never try to negotiate or settle a truck accident injury claim on your own.

It is essential to obtain the following information:

  • Police report
  • Photos of the crash scene
  • Toxicology reports
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Dashcam footage
  • Black box data
  • Bills of lading
  • Hours of Service logbook
  • Weigh station receipts

Often lawyers for Trucking companies may be dispatched to the scene of an accident immediately after learning of it. These attorneys are determined to protect the trucking companies from lawsuits.  To avoid the destruction of evidence, such as a cover-up of any inconsistencies in a driver’s log, etc. your best bet is to hire a truck accident lawyer of your own. Please feel free to contact the Law Office of Ivan Rueda to investigate your accident and pursue litigation if necessary.

Consider these factors:

  • In an instant, you can suffer devastating injuries that may require an extended hospital stay and long-term care.
  • In addition to your physical injuries, you may be experiencing PTSD (post-traumatic stress) due to the severity of your accident. Combined with the unexpected financial burden of your medical treatment, you may be feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what steps to take next.  A trucking accident lawyer can help you navigate the road to recovery.
