Immediately following a car accident it is important that you stay at the scene and call police. If possible, take pictures of the damage the accident caused and move the vehicles out of the way. Always try to exchange insurance information with the other parties involved and seek medical help right away if you sustain injuries. You should be evaluated by a doctor even if you feel OK.
Am I Eligible for Compensation?
The majority of our clients are eligible for compensation after they have suffered due to another’s negligence or recklessness. You will need to make a strong case for your claim, including filing the police report and any photos that were taken at the scene. The more evidence you have to support your case, the more likely it is that you will receive a fair settlement.
Will My Case Go to Court?
In most cases, car accident cases are resolved outside of court through settlement negotiations; however, there is always the chance that a reasonable solution cannot be obtained through this method. Our attorneys will go to court for you should you choose for your case to be tried in a court of law. This is backed by our Trial Guarantee.
What Makes an 18-Wheeler Accident Different from a Car Accident?
There are several aspects of large truck wrecks that make them stand out from car wrecks. Aside from the increased risk of sustaining more severe injuries than in a car-on-car accident, the 18-wheeler driver whose negligent actions led to the accident that harmed you is likely backed by a large trucking company that will fight aggressively to deny your claim. If you are up against an 18-wheeler driver, you need an attorney on your side to uphold your claim and fight hard for the settlement you deserve.
Who is Responsible for an 18-wheeler Accident?
Though the driver’s negligence or recklessness may have led to the severe injuries you are recovering from, there is usually a big corporation behind his actions doing everything possible to block your attempt to receive compensation. Large trucking companies can be held liable for your injuries, and it is possible to negotiate with their insurance companies with the help of a knowledgeable 18-wheeler accident attorney.
