Hiring a Commercial Truck Accident Attorney

The potential damages resulting from a truck accident can be devastating. Semi-trucks and big rigs can cause significant damage to motorways, vehicles and properties.

From physical injuries and medical bills to property loss and loss of future income, the costs resulting from a truck accident may feel endless and overwhelming. Hiring a commercial truck accident attorney can help you get the compensation you need and deserve to overcome the hardship of being involved in a truck accident.

Common Causes of CDL Accidents

Commercial truck driving accidents can occur at any time for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, getting specific about the exact cause of the accident is crucial in making a claim and receiving appropriate compensation. Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Fatigued driving
  • Tailgating
  • Vehicle defects

Determining the true cause of a truck accident can also help in specifying the at-fault party in the accident. For example, some commercial truck accidents involve employees driving for companies who are not following regulations like federal hours of service rules. This may put the employer at fault for the crash. Working with a qualified attorney like Peterford Law can help you in investigating your accident and determining the appropriate at-fault party.

To help solidify your case and determine the cause of the accident, collect all the evidence and documentation you can on the scene. Taking photos, recording the contact information of witnesses, saving police records and medical receipts, and noting down important details about the conditions of the crash can help strengthen your case and receive the compensation you need.

Possible Damages

Determining the scope of your claim is crucial to building your case. Many people first think of the loss of the vehicle and the immediate medical bills in specifying their losses. However, being injured in a commercial truck accident can have long-term financial and physical effects. For example, some injuries can result in losing the ability to perform work duties and thus losing wages in the present and future. Others will require ongoing physical therapy or other medical attention. Keeping track of additional losses that are often overlooked can help you earn the compensation you need to recover and move on after an accident. Possible damages include:

  • Medical bills and future estimated medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death
  • Permanent disability
  • Permanent disfigurement

One of the benefits of working with a qualified attorney like Peterford Law is getting help in laying out the true losses you are suffering as a result of the truck accident. Keeping a record of all medical reports and receipts is crucial to your claim, and accepting medical attention on the scene is important as well. Without an accurate and detailed claim, the financial impacts of suffering in a truck accident can be catastrophic for years to come.

Why Hire a Commercial Truck Accident Attorney?

Hiring an attorney means you don’t have to navigate the tricky waters of filing accurate claims and understanding liability laws alone. While it may seem cut-and-dry at first glance, determining and proving who is the responsible party in a CDL-related accident can be convoluted and difficult. Specifying and proving fault will be the basis of your claim, but often, nailing down these details requires the help of an attorney.

In many cases, insurance companies strive to prove the blame of the other party involved in an accident. In the case of an accident involving a big rig or a delivery truck, some cases will involve the employer or even manufacturer behind the trucker. Possible at-fault parties in commercial trucking accidents include:

  • Truck parts manufacturers
  • Truck drivers
  • Cargo loaders
  • Trucking companies or truck owners

Determining the at-fault party and providing proof of the events of the accident can be complex. To ensure these processes go smoothly and that you receive the compensation you deserve, it’s best to work with a trustworthy and experienced truck accident attorney. Without a trusted attorney, it’s all too easy to overlook possible sources of compensation.

Finding a Trustworthy Accident Attorney

With an unfaltering dedication to his clients and years of experience, Peterford Law fights for his clients in court. No one should have to shoulder the financial and emotional burdens of suffering in a truck accident alone. Receiving appropriate compensation can make all the difference in reducing the stress and pain of a truck accident.

Don’t leave the details up to chance.
