How an Appleton Truck Accident Attorney Can Help

If you are involved in any type of accident that results in a severe injury, it is in your best interest to hire an experienced truck accident attorney. An attorney can insulate you from interactions with insurance companies and build a strong case on your behalf, while you focus on recovering from your injuries.  An attorney can help in many ways, including:

  • Determining who is at fault for your accident
  • Gathering evidence needed to support your case, including black box recordings, driver logs, company schedules, and maintenance records.
  • Calculating the value of your claim. This includes getting a full understanding of your injuries, the cost of your medical treatment and rehabilitation, any ongoing and future medical needs, and how the injury has affected your ability to work and earn income.
  • Negotiating with the insurance company. Insurance companies will never offer fair compensation right away. It is our job to build a strong case and negotiate a fair and full settlement offer.
  • Representing your case at trial. If insurance companies fail to offer fair value, we will not hesitate to take them to court if it is in your best interests.

How Truck Accidents Differ from Passenger Vehicle Collisions

While both are motor vehicle collisions, truck accidents and the personal injury claims that come with them are very different from those involving passenger vehicles. First, truck accidents almost always involve serious, catastrophic injuries. The forces involved in truck collisions typically leave the occupants of smaller passenger vehicles with those injuries.

Secondly, these cases involve many different laws, state and federal regulations and other complexities that do not typically present themselves in other motor vehicle collisions. Thirdly, the stakes are extremely high and it is vital that an attorney begins working on your behalf as soon as possible. Trucking companies and their insurers will likely have investigators on the scene almost immediately, you need an advocate to preserve important evidence like truck driver logs, maintenance records, and black box recordings. If an attorney is not involved immediately, this evidence may be lost or destroyed.
