Have you ever tensed up when a semi-truck gets a little too close to you or nearly comes into your lane? Every driver wants to avoid accidents on the road, especially truck accidents. Semi-trucks pose even more danger to the average driver because of their massive size compared to the average car. If you were injured in a truck accident, you should seek representation from an experienced truck accident attorney who may be able to help you recover the damages you deserve through a settlement agreement or the trial process.

While the average car accident lawsuit often involves both drivers and their insurance companies, truck accident lawsuits involve the plaintiff driver, truck driver, trucking company that employs the truck driver, and insurance companies. Truck accident lawsuits may ultimately settle or proceed to trial. Either way, you need a trusted attorney who can negotiate a settlement outside the courtroom or fight for you at trial. At Kash Legal, our skilled attorneys are experienced with the tactics of trucking companies and their insurance companies and may be able to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Why You Need an Experienced Attorney to Help With Your Truck Accident Lawsuit

When you are involved in a truck accident, you may not know what steps to take to receive compensation. If you are injured, you need to address any immediate medical needs following the accident. After addressing any pertinent injuries, you should seek legal counsel as soon as possible. In California, you only have two years from the date of the accident before you are barred from bringing suit.

When you meet with an attorney, you will discuss the facts of your case. The attorney will want to know more about the damages to your vehicle and your injuries. You may need to produce medical records, and the attorney may also try to speak to people who witnessed the accident. Additionally, your attorney may alert the trucking company who hired the at-fault driver to let them know they should preserve any evidence for a potential trial. Once the attorney has gathered enough information and determined that you have a legitimate case to bring to court, they will file your lawsuit. Your attorney will also advise you on whether to sue the trucking company as the employer of the at-fault driver as well as the at-fault driver.

Once the lawsuit is filed, your attorney will receive responses from the defendants. Having an experienced attorney represent you is very important because trucking companies and their insurance companies often employ tactics to convince plaintiffs to settle for much less money than they originally asked for in damages. An attorney can navigate these tactics and fight for your rightful compensation.

A Truck Accident Attorney Will Help You Navigate the Settlement Process or a Trial

A large majority of all lawsuits are settled outside of court. The trucking company and insurance company will want to settle to avoid using time and resources on lengthy litigation. You need a skilled attorney representing you to negotiate a fair settlement that will compensate you for your damages. Left to your own devices, you may accept a lowball offer without knowing you could go after a higher amount. When a settlement cannot be agreed upon, the case may proceed to trial.

If your case goes to trial, you need a competent legal team to prove that the truck driver and/or trucking company were negligent in order to win your case. This means that you have to prove the defendant failed to meet the standard of care they owed to you as another driver on the road, and you were injured as a result of such failure. If your attorney can prove that your case contains all the elements of a negligence claim, then you will most likely win your case.
