The Importance of Truck Accident Investigation
Truck accident cases are won and lost based on the quality of the investigation. No matter how straightforward the accident may seem, the bulk of the evidence is typically found in the records kept by the truck driver and trucking company. Even when the trucker was at fault for the accident, the trucking company also can often be held responsible itself for your accident.
Trucking companies are known for requiring their drivers to meet unrealistic schedules, and in the process they encourage or require them to violate trucking regulations. Compliance with trucking regulations includes keeping extensive records which can point us to the violations underlying your accident. But it takes an experienced truck accident attorney to know which records to look at and a trained eye to spot the discrepancies which reveal these violations.
Truck Accident Damages
The injuries caused by truck accidents are often catastrophic and life-changing. Survivors may be permanently disabled and unable to return to work. Some may even require 24 hour in-home care and assistance, as well as having the need for ongoing medical care. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and amputations are not uncommon in truck accidents.
Through a truck accident lawsuit, you may recover compensation for your economic and non-economic damages including:
- Medical expenses and future medical expenses
