A step-by-step guide for how your lawyer will help with truck accident aftermath
Several specific steps that we will help you through after your accident. Our team can:
Consider your medical care
More specifically, our team will:
- Speak with your doctors so that we understand your injuries
- Determine a timetable for recovery
- Determine the likely cost of your medical care
We will collect and organize all relevant medical paperwork. This may include images of your injuries, medical bills, and doctors’ written diagnoses of your injuries.
Represent you with the insurance companies
Motorists in Pennsylvania must have auto insurance, and you may receive compensation for your losses through insurance. Dealing with insurance companies can be challenging, though. Our team will communicate with insurance companies for you. We will protect you from pressure to accept liability or agree to a lowball settlement.
Document your accident scene
Time permitting, we will investigate the scene of your truck accident. Our investigators may:
- Collect any evidence, like video footage, that originates from the accident scene
- Speak with witnesses who saw your accident
- Obtain the police report for your accident
This documentation could help us negotiate a settlement.
Document losses aside from medical care
We will seek proof of losses aside from your injuries and the cost of medical care. Those losses may include your pain and suffering, lost income and earning power, lost productivity, and property damage, among other losses.
Determine who owes you compensation
Those liable for your accident may cover your losses. Negligence is a common standard for liability. We may prove a defendant’s negligence by:
- Showing that they owed you a duty of care
- Proving that they violated their duty of care
- Proving their negligence as the cause of your accident
- Exhibiting your accident-related damages
By following this formula, we may prove that you deserve compensation from a liable party.
Completing the remainder of your case
Our team will handle every part of your truck accident case. From drafting and filing your case to settlement negotiations, you can trust us to fight for you.
If you were involved in a truck accident in Pennsylvania, then you should weigh your options. Hiring a lawyer to pursue awards for you could remove a lot of stress.
Is a trucking company responsible for a driver’s negligence?
A trucking company may be liable for its drivers’ actions. If a truck driver caused your accident, their employer could cover some or all of your losses. The legal principle of vicarious liability may make an employer responsible for an employer’s negligence.
A trucker’s negligent actions may be the responsibility of their employer—from a legal standpoint. You could obtain compensation from either or both parties.
How much is your truck accident case in Pennsylvania worth?
When considering the “value” of your truck accident case, we generally mean the cost of your accident-related losses. The settlement you receive may be on par with the cost of your damages.
Truck accident cases vary in their monetary value. Our team will fully investigate your accident and losses to determine the cost of your damages. Once we do, we will know the value of your case.
Insurance companies and other attorneys do not have your interests in mind
Insurance representatives may be friendly and seem well-intentioned, but insurance companies do not necessarily represent your best interests. Attorneys for others involved in your accident certainly do not have your best interests in mind.
Only your lawyer can represent you in an unbiased manner. Our team will defend your rights and consider your financial interests. Truck accident cases may expose you to risk, and failing to protect yourself may:
- Expose you to liability for your accident
- Put you in a difficult financial position
- Cause you to forfeit a potential judgment or settlement
- Have lifelong consequences
Do not expose yourself to harm. Instead, allow our firm to protect you and fight for a financial recovery.
