2 Reasons to Call a Lawyer After a Truck Accident

by Staff Blogger | August 22nd, 2016

We talk a lot on this blog about the importance of getting a lawyer after an accident. The main reason is that it is difficult to get the compensation you deserve without one. That’s true for car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and even pedestrian accidents, but it’s especially true for truck accidents. Why? Two reasons: 1) The opposition in a truck accident is usually much tougher than in normal vehicle-related cases, and 2) truck accidents are usually more complex.

In most car accident cases, you’re only going up against the insurance company of the at-fault driver. In a truck accident, you could be facing a team of lawyers who work for the trucking company, as well as the insurance company that represents the at-fault driver. Combined, they can be a pretty intimidating force to reckon with on your own. An experienced truck accident attorney knows how to deal with multiple insurance companies and their lawyers. We do it all the time.

Secondly, there are a number of different variables in a trucking accident that need to be considered, making it one of the most complex vehicle-related case types to handle. Trying to avoid the common pitfalls that accident victims fall prey to can be difficult without an experienced lawyer on your side. Not to mention the fact that you’re injured and need to focus on your recovery only.
