When there is an accident between a truck and a car, the person or persons in the car lose. They don’t only lose because they are injured through, many times through no fault of their own. They lose because the trucking company and its insurance company usually immediately start an investigation. Truckers are trained early in their careers and are often reminded that if they are in an accident, they should report it to their bosses immediately. The bosses then contact the trucking company’s insurance company and an insurance adjuster jumps to action. Meanwhile the injured victims from the car focus on recovering from their injuries. Given that trucks are sometimes 50 times bigger and heavier than a car, the injuries are often quite serious.
As my mother taught me, your health is the most important thing. However, after a truck crash, it is imperative that the injured victims hire a skilled and experience trucking accident attorney right away. If the injuries make it impossible or difficult to get to a truck accident attorney’s office, most reputable truck accident attorneys will make home or hospital visits. A trucking attorney should be hired not only to gather and preserve evidence, research the applicable federal and state law and give good counsel, but so the injured victim can focus on what’s really important, his or her health.
