What Does a Truck Accident Lawyer Do?

Despite increased safety protocols and driver training practices, there has been an alarming number of truck accidents, resulting in devastating injuries and trauma. If you are involved in a truck accident, it is important to understand your rights and seek legal help from an experienced truck accident lawyer.

At the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates, we understand the complexities of truck accident cases and are dedicated to helping victims and their families get the compensation they deserve. Our experienced truck accident lawyers will investigate the accident to determine who is liable, gather evidence to support the claim, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent you in court if necessary.

Understanding the Liability in a Truck Accident Incident

Recovering damages is a necessary procedure that must be handled with the finesse it deserves. Depending on the circumstances, the parties at fault may include:

·         The truck driver

·         The trucking company

·         The truck manufacturer

·         The shipping company

·         Insurance companies and even government entities

A key factor in determining the responsible party is whether the truck driver is an independent contractor or an employee. Relevant to this, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates commercial trucks on U.S. roads.

The truck accident lawyer comes in to identify all responsible parties and pursue them legally.

Building a Compelling Case in a Truck Accident Incident

As noted above, formulating a solid case requires a determined legal professional to assemble and present the evidence most effectively. From painting a vivid picture of the toll taken on the victims to create a convincing argument, truck accident lawyers shoulder the burden of obtaining a just settlement.

A truck accident lawyer can help while you focus on recovering, including:

·         Investigating and collecting evidence, such as police reports and data from the truck’s electronic system.

·         Gathering medical bills and other expenses.

·         Identifying liable parties and insurance companies.

·         Negotiating with insurance companies for a fair settlement.

·         Taking the case to court if the insurance companies refuse to settle.

·         Filing the relevant documents for your case.
