Do I Need a Truck Accident Attorney?

After an accident with a large truck, your entire focus is on recovering from your injuries, getting back to work, and taking care of your family. You don’t have the time and energy to fight with the trucking companies, their insurance companies, and their lawyers. Having a truck accident attorney allows you to put your focus where it belongs while we fight on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve. A truck accident attorney will investigate the facts of your accident. At Lawrence & Associates, we have accident reconstructionists and logbook auditors who will be able to uncover whether the truck driver operated their truck unsafely or whether the driver should have been on the road at all. A truck accident attorney will investigate whether the driver was negligently hired or credentialed or whether the driver’s logs were inadequate or falsified.

An experienced truck accident attorney will also peel back the multiple layers of insurance that many trucking companies have. A trucking company may falsely represent to you the amount of insurance coverage it has. An experienced truck accident attorney knows better and will work to get you a more substantial recovery from the trucking company’s full insurance coverage.

Your crash may likely have left you with severe and long-lasting injuries. A truck accident attorney has the knowledge and experience to evaluate your damages and the ability to call in experts who will testify as to the injuries suffered and expenses you’ve incurred.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike an accident between passenger vehicles, truck accident claims involve not only the truck driver but the trucking company. In addition to claiming that the driver was negligent, you can also claim that same negligence against the trucking company under the theory of respondeat superior (a party is responsible for the actions of their agents). Depending on the facts, you may also be able to file a direct claim against the trucking company asserting negligent hiring, negligent training, or negligent supervision.
A truck accident has likely left you with serious injuries. As a result, you’ve also incurred expenses for which you are entitled to compensation. Some of these expenses include:
  • Medical bills (past and future)
  • Lost income (past and future)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Damage to property
Trucking companies often have several layers of insurance coverage. They may have an initial policy of only several hundred thousand which they offer to you to get you to think that’s all the insurance that’s available. But those trucking companies frequently have millions in various levels of coverage. An experienced truck accident attorney with Lawrence & Associates can get to the bottom of their claims and get you the compensation you deserve.
When you hire Lawrence & Associates as your attorney, you pay nothing up front. We accept personal injury cases on contingency. That means you will only owe us a fee if we obtain compensation for you. If we obtain a settlement or a court judgment in your favor, our fees, cases expenses, and court costs will be paid out of your settlement or judgment.
Unfortunately, the length of time it will take to resolve your claim depends on numerous factors, mostly the willingness of the other side to settle and the efficiency of the courts. Claims can be resolved quickly if the other party accepts liability and your damages are easy to calculate. However, in other cases, it may be necessary to take your claim to court. In any case, the truck accident attorneys of Lawrence & Associates will work diligently to get you the recovery you deserve as quickly as the justice system allows.

Truck Accident Statistics

In 2015, there were 22,490 crashes involving commercial vehicles, which includes buses and trucks. The Highway Patrol reports that in that same year there were 132 fatalities in accidents involving heavy trucks.
