* We say “truck crash”, not “truck accident” … here’s why.
In trucking cases, time matters.
A violent crash is scary and stressful.
Often, injured people wait months to get legal help.
But commercial trucking companies are prepared to defend themselves: and, they start immediately after a serious crash.
- Insurance: Insurance carriers for truck drivers and trucking companies have a lot of money at stake, and defend truck crash cases very aggressively.
- Attorneys: Most trucking companies have a lawyer involved immediately after the crash is reported.
- Investigation: Trucking companies have “accident response” teams on-call. An investigator, a company safety person, and a risk management team usually come to the scene of the crash. The information they gather is used to support the trucking company’s insurance adjuster and attorney.
After a semi-truck crash, it is crucial to get help right away.
An attorney can help you navigate the insurance maze, conduct a through investigation of the crash—and preserve valuable evidence.
