Few types of accidents are as routinely devastating as truck accidents. Sadly, due to the size and speed at which many trucks travel nowadays, people may lose limb or life in a truck accident.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, only by taking decisive action can you recover financial compensation from the responsible parties.
Read on to learn more about some of the frequently asked questions regarding truck accident claims and how a Phoenix truck accident lawyer can help.
Some of the most common questions we receive in relation to truck accidents include:
This depends entirely on the nature and extent of your injuries and other losses from the accident. Insurance and lawsuit settlements are made up of both economic and non-economic damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma. In rarer cases, a jury may choose to award you “punitive,” or exemplary damages, when the defendant acted especially recklessly or negligently.
Because of modern logistics, truck accidents may very well have multiple liable parties. One of the first things your truck accident lawyer can do is track down all available evidence from your accident in order to ensure justice is served. In order to do this, truck accident lawyers may rely on information from police reports, medical records, witness statements, expert testimony, and other evidence as necessary.
The first step is going to a doctor to receive care for and documentation of your injuries. Later, with the help of your attorney, you can submit a demand letter to the at-fault party’s insurance company to attempt to receive a settlement. Sometimes that won’t be possible, and you’ll have to go to court to have a chance at recovery. For that reason, it’s impossible to say with certainty how long your case will last without going over the details individually with a qualified truck accident lawyer.
Regardless of the nature of your truck accident, you deserve compensation for the losses you’ve suffered due to someone else’s carelessness. With so much at stake, why go with anyone but the pros? At Zachar Law Firm, we’re prepared to fight for your compensation, whether in court or out of it.
