There are many things that differentiate a semi-truck accident from a regular one, the main thing being that the accident may not have been the semi-truck driver’s fault. In regular auto accidents, it’s almost certain that the wreck was caused by one of the two drivers. However, the person that loaded the semi-truck, the actual owner of the semi-truck, or even the mechanic responsible for maintaining the engine in the semi could be held responsible for the accident. Hiring a San Diego trucking accident lawyer gives the victim the best chance of finding out who was responsible for the accident so they can be held accountable for their mistake.
Another thing that makes a semi-truck accident different is the fact that the trucking company hauling the load is already going to have a team of lawyers in place to defend their drivers. This means that if a victim doesn’t have their own legal representation, they are likely going to end up in a bad position. The trucking company lawyers are going to do everything they can to prevent from having to pay out a settlement to the victim.
When dealing with a reliable lawyer in a semi-truck accident case, the victim will only need to be worrying about healing and recovery. A good lawyer will handle everything for their client, from obtaining medical paperwork to investigating the trucking company in question.
After being involved in a semi-truck accident, you’re likely feeling overwhelmed with everything that’s going on, on top of dealing with your injuries. Most people in these situations end up worrying so much about how they are going to pay for their expensive medical bills and also how they are going to replace their vehicle. However, a reliable lawyer will be able to work all of this out for their client. If the victim didn’t cause the accident to occur in any way, then they should not be held financially responsible for the negligent party’s mistake.
We offer free consultations so you can get all of the information you need about your trucking accident quickly and easily. We understand that you may not even hire a lawyer for your case if the trucking company is already offering you a fair settlement amount, but you should still check with us just to make sure that the amount is truly fair and doesn’t just sound good because it looks like a lot of money. Also, we will accept your case without charging you any money up front; our law firm operates under a contingency basis. We will not charge our clients any money unless we win their case--this is also to help us prove to our clients that we are confident in our ability to win the cases we take.
In addition to hiring a San Diego trucking accident lawyer, you can also do other things that will help your case in court. For example, if you had a dash camera installed in your car, see if you can retrieve the footage that shows what happened on the road. Dash cam footage of a semi-truck accident can be the difference between a long and drawn out case or one that gets concluded in a few short hearings.
You could also try to get in touch with anybody who happened to be around at the time of your accident. If an unbiased, third-party saw your accident occur and is willing to testify on your behalf or write a sworn statement for you, it can greatly help your case in court. Providing your lawyer with this type of information is going to drastically increase your chances of winning your case.
When it comes to your financial burdens and ensuring that you are taken care of after a trucking accident, put your trust in a law firm that has experience with these type of cases. Hiring a law firm that knows the law regarding semi-trucks is going to give a victim the best chance of being awarded the money they need.
