A Truck Accident Can Change Your Life
You Need An Attorney Who Understands How To Get Fair Value For Your Loss
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident that was caused by someone else, or if a loved one has been killed in an accident that was caused by a commercial vehicle, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
Immediate Action Is Important To Build A Strong Case
Trucking company fleets log hundreds of thousands of miles each year. For these companies, serious accidents are a part of doing business. You may have suffered the most serious injuries of your life in an accident that was caused by a negligent truck driver. For the trucking company, it is a regular and expected part of their business.
Trucking companies and their carriers have highly skilled lawyers on retainer to make these problems go away. It is critical for accident victims to enlist the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer who will be equally effective in identifying and preserving evidence.
Colin Smith has the resources necessary to complete a thorough accident investigation and collect evidence that may play an important role in maximizing the amount you recover. Federal and state safety regulations that commercial drivers and their companies must follow, including weight restrictions, maintenance requirements and limitations on how many consecutive hours of driving can be logged over certain time frames, are all helpful in protecting the rights of the injured.
Speak With Your Lawyer Before You Speak With Theirs
If the facts surrounding your truck accident indicate truck driver error or negligence on the part of the trucking company, you may be offered an early settlement. No matter how generous it appears, it is not wise to accept it. This is likely an effort on the part of the trucking company to minimize the settlement. It can take months of medical treatment to accurately assess the extent of your injuries and the true value of your personal injury claim.
