Truck Accident Lawyers
Truck Accident Litigation
We don’t hide behind briefs and settle for you, we fight.
Trucks are big, and they deserve respect on the road, added caution, dedication to traffic laws, and many hours of driver training. Even with all their training and day to day driving experience, truck accidents and dangerous collisions still happen. There is a very good chance that the collision was due to truck driver negligence. Whether this negligence was due to mobile device usage or a system failure that should have been addressed at an inspection that was disregarded or forgotten, you have a case for claiming negligence for a truck accident and any injuries sustained. Starting a lawsuit may be the first step necessary to protect yourself and your family from any costs or medical bills sustained from the accident.
If you are involved in a truck accident, you should contact The Liblang Law Firm to discuss your case immediately: (248) 540-9270 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did You Know?
Time Is The Most Important Part To Your Case
The victim should act to protect legal rights beginning with the day the accident occurred. You should look to the experienced professionals at The Liblang Law Firm to handle your injury accident claim.
Stay at the Crash Scene
Remember, leaving the scene of an accident could make you responsible for a hit and run. Always remain at the scene until authorities and medical help have arrived. You may move your vehicle if possible, but it is best to leave the vehicle where it crashed in order to preserve evidence.
Large truck collisions can cause a variety of severe injuries, even fatalities. Safety should always be your first priority. By dialing 9-1-1, you will dispatch police and other emergency services to help gather eyewitness accounts while also building your crash report.
Check Other Vehicles for Truck Accident Injuries
Truck accidents can often involve other passenger vehicles. Take care of your own injuries before giving assistance to other passengers and their vehicles.
Take Photos, Record Video and Capture Audio
Immediately after an accident, the crash scene provides the best opportunity to capture any and every form of evidence to prove you were harmed due to someone else’s negligence.
Take photos of any form of damage to your vehicle, or any other vehicles in the vicinity. Include snapshots of intersections or any specific landmarks and pay close attention to skid marks.
If it is dark, audio recordings can offer a very helpful solution instead of fumbling around for a pen and paper. Afterwards, record your own audio account of what happened.
Have a record of the facts can be critical as details tend to fade with the passage of time and truck crash lawsuits may sometimes take months at a time. Having an audio and visual record of what happened will help as you move forward with legal action.
Exchange Information with Other Drivers Involved
Like any car accident, there is some important information you will need to collect from all drivers involved. Make sure to obtain:
- Phone Number
- Driver’s License Number
- License Plate Number
- Insurance Carrier & Name of Agent
- Insurance Policy Number
Do Not Make Any Statements About the Crash
Remember the old adage “Whatever you do, don’t say it was your fault”? It’s always best to stick with that. Even if you sense that you had some responsibility for what happened, it’s always best to take some time and make sure you are in a calm state of mind before asking the appropriate questions.
Have Your Case Evaluated
It’s always important to have someone with experience fighting for you. The lawyers at Liblang are well equipped to handle any large vehicle negligence you may encounter.
Attend All Doctor Appointments and Medical Advice
Caring for your health is not only important for yourself, but for the defense attorneys on the other side watching to make sure you have sustained real injuries. Keep records of all visits and medical payments.
Begin Legal Action by Filing a Lawsuit
Did you know there is a deadline for filing a truck accident lawsuit? It’s called the Statute of Limitations and the clock is ticking every moment. Missing this deadline may mean a huge missed opportunity to receive the compensation and justice you deserve.
