If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, it’s important to speak with a truck accident lawyer Towson, MD residents trust as soon as you possibly can. Truck accidents can be catastrophic. But even if you “only” sustained relatively mild or moderate injuries as a result of the accident, you’ll want to act quickly to preserve your legal options. The sooner you speak with an experienced Towson, MD truck accident lawyer at our firm, the sooner our team can begin working to preserve evidence related to your accident. Securing solid evidence before it becomes compromised in any way will help to ensure that your case is as strong as possible.
Building a strong case is critical, even if you hope to avoid legal action and “only” negotiate with insurance providers. Why? You won’t necessarily know which insurance providers owe you compensation until your accident is investigated. Truck accident liability tends to be a complex issue, as more than one party may be held accountable for the harm you’ve suffered, even if there was only one other vehicle involved in your collision.
Who May Be Held Liable for Truck Accident Injuries?
Most truckers do not own and operate their trucks independently. Most truck drivers are employed by larger companies. As a result, their actions are often influenced by their employers’ policies. Say that you were involved in an accident after a fatigued truck driver fell asleep for a few seconds behind the wheel. After our team investigates the truck driver’s employment situation, we learn that the trucker who hit you is employed by a company known for violating federal regulations that dictate how often a trucker must rest before they can legally operate their vehicle. If this is the case, we’ll likely pursue damages against both the truck driver AND the company that employs them, as each entity contributed to the harm you have suffered. Depending on the details of your situation, we may also file a lawsuit against a third party, like a parts manufacturer or the local government responsible for upkeep of the road upon which the collision occurred.
Even if you want to avoid filing a personal injury lawsuit and wish to exclusively deal with insurance companies, you’ll want to seek representation as soon as you can. All of the evidence gathering and negotiation skills that make a lawsuit successful make it possible for our team to secure the maximum amount of compensation our clients are entitled to from insurance providers.
