Why should I hire a truck accident lawyer?
Although there are important steps you should take immediately after an accident involving a truck, your next concern may be hiring a lawyer. The truck company and the insurance company for the commercial truck involved in the accident will immediately investigate the accident. These companies regularly deal with truck accidents and have a predefined plan regarding how to investigate, analyze, and document accidents. Their goal is to reduce the amount of compensation available to the accident victim or, in the case of a death, the victim’s family. Their process may include documenting interviews with crash witnesses and recording video and photos of the accident scene. If you caused the accident in even the most minor way, the trucking company and the insurance company will work to emphasize this.
