How We Can Help With Your Truck Accident Claim
Tractor trailer accidents are complicated because they may have many potential causes and are subject to many regulations. The legal team at Cofman Townsley has experience handling truck accident claims, and we can build a strong case for you by:
We’ll travel to the accident scene and collect evidence from the wreck, including debris and photographs of skid marks and other physical signs of the collision. We’ll inspect the truck, truck driver’s log, and truck maintenance records.
Witnesses can provide a clear picture of what happened in the accident. We’ll do our best to locate and interview anyone who saw your accident occur.
Negotiate With the Insurance Company
Trucking companies have powerful insurance companies on their sides, and they may be hesitant to pay the money you deserve. We’ll negotiate and stand up for your rights to compensation.
It’s important that you contact a truck accident lawyer as soon as possible after the accident, because crucial evidence can disappear fast.
3 Reasons Truck Accidents Are Different
While any motor vehicle accident can be traumatic, several factors set truck accident cases apart from other types of motor vehicle claims.
Severity of Injuries
Tractor trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds—or nearly 20 times more than an average passenger car. This difference in weight makes the probability of serious injuries or death much higher for truck accidents than for accidents involving smaller vehicles.
Multiple Parties May Be Held Liable
Truck drivers, trucking companies, truck manufacturers, and leasing companies are just some of the parties that can be held liable for truck accidents. An in-depth investigation is often required to determine which parties may have contributed to a truck accident.
Trucking Industry Regulations
From weight limits to cargo restrictions, the trucking industry must follow strict safety regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Visit our Truck Regulations page to learn more about how violations of these regulations can lead to deadly accidents.
