- Your Truck Accident Attorney Will Collect Evidence to Determine Fault
- Your Truck Accident Attorney Will Work to Prove Your Injuries Were Caused During the Truck Accident
- Your Truck Accident Attorney Will Negotiate on Your Behalf
In addition to being very dangerous, truck accidents can be very complex. There can be numerous people at fault. It may be that the driver was on the road after having exceeded the legal number of hours he could work each week. It may be that the trucking company he worked for required that he do so. It could be that he truck was not properly maintained, or that it was not safely loaded.
Any of these issues could leave different parties at fault. One of the most important duties of your truck attorney is finding out who was at fault, what their percentage of fault was, and who to turn to. For example, if the truck drive was at fault, their insurance company is the one we would make the claim to.
It may be that the insurance company is willing to admit that their client was at fault for the accident but they may claim that you were not actually injured, that your injuries are not as serios as you claim, or that the injuries were pre-existing and not related to the truck accident. Through witness testimony, medical records, and experts in the field, we will prove the extent of your injuries and that they were caused by the truck accident in question.
First, we will look at your medical bills and lost wages associated with the accident. We will figure out how much you are owed for property damage. We will consider the long-term consequences of your injury and what type of compensation you are owed for pain and suffering. We will then negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. We will work to get you the maximum compensation possible.
If the insurance company is not willing to offer a fair settlement then we will take the case to court. If you are interested in finding out what your best options are, contact Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707 now for a free legal consultation.
