How Truck Accident and Car Accident Cases Differ—and Why You Need an Attorney to Handle Your Truck Crash Case
If you've handled your own insurance claim after a fender-bender, you might think you're prepared to handle a truck accident claim or lawsuit yourself. While retaining legal representation isn't a requirement, it's highly advisable. Although truck and car crash cases both involve vehicles and potential damages, they couldn't be more different. Here's what sets crash cases involving large trucks apart:
- More evidence. The trucker's driving and training histories, who owns the truck, and when it was last inspected or serviced (and by whom) can be essential to your case. We can send spoliation letters to the relevant parties informing them of their obligation to preserve this and other evidence.
- Larger pool of potentially liable parties. Determining who to name as the defendant in your lawsuit can be difficult. Depending on the details of the case, it could be a negligent truck driver or owner, a mechanic who failed to correctly complete a repair, the manufacturer of a faulty part, or another party. We can help.
- Greater injuries and damages. Tennessee truck accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries and damages, some of which may require ongoing treatment. Our attorneys will fight to ensure that your settlement or award includes the cost of future care.
- Potential for larger settlements and financial awards. The greater the injuries and damages, the greater the potential for a sizable settlement or financial award—and you can count on the at-fault party's insurer or defense team to push back. Working with exceptionally skilled truck crash lawyers helps level the playing field.
What You Might Recover
Depending on factors such as the severity and permanency of your injuries, you could recover compensation for wide-ranging damages, including current and future medical expenses, property damages, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, out-of-pocket costs, physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, scarring or disfigurement, disability, and reduced quality of life.
