ASSERTIVE Spring Truck Accident Lawyer

Spring Truck Accident Lawyer

Truck accidents are inherently different from standard car accidents. These accident claims can be incredibly complex without a truck accident lawyer. From the severe injuries (and possible fatalities) to the multiple parties that may be liable. While contacting a truck accident attorney after a personal injury accident is always advisable, working with the right attorney can mean the difference between a successful claim or being denied your compensation in a truck accident claim. 

Speaking with an attorney experienced in handling commercial truck accidents is the best way to protect your rights and obtain fair compensation. At Mott & Moffett, our qualified truck accident lawyer will advocate for your right to maximum compensation. Our firm is committed to helping our clients pursue the best possible outcome to help them get their lives back on track.

How to Get the Compensation You Deserve After a Truck Accident

An experienced attorney understands the inner workings of truck accident claims and the trucking industry. Their knowledge, skills, and resources are the things you need to level the playing field in a truck accident claim. When you hire a dedicated and trusted attorney, they can tackle the legal aspect of your claim, giving you the space to focus on recovering. An attorney will help with the following:

Determining Fault

It can be challenging to determine fault in a truck accident because multiple parties may have contributed to it.

  • The truck driver
  • The truck company
  • The truck’s manufacturer
  • The cargo company 

Your attorney will understand that more than one party may be liable for covering damages and ensure they investigate every legal avenue you have to recover maximum damages.

Investigating

As mentioned above, your attorney can help strengthen your claim by conducting their own investigation of the accident. The commercial truck company will conduct its own investigation, but its goal isn’t to protect your best interest; it’s to protect theirs. Your attorney will be looking out for your best interest and collecting the necessary evidence to help your claim.

Proving Negligence

A critical element of any personal injury case is proving negligence. Negligence is the action or lack of action that was the direct or proximate cause of the accident. In order for someone to be proven negligent, they must have owed the victim a duty of care at the time of the accident. Commercial truck companies and drivers are considered common carriers and owe not just a standard duty of care, but are held to a higher standard of care because of their responsibility to the general public. Therefore, they may be held liable when their behavior fails to meet their legal obligation to prevent causing harm. 

In many commercial truck accident claims, the collision is the result of negligence on the part of the truck driver due to behaviors such as:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving while extremely tired 
  • Aggressive driving or speeding
  • Road rage
  • Texting, eating, or engaging in other distracting activities while driving

However, liability rarely falls just on the driver. Many times, the company that employs them may also be liable for engaging in the following behaviors:

  • Not properly training the driver
  • Setting unworkable delivery times that cause unsafe conditions for the driver
  • Delaying part replacements, including tires, brakes, and other essential parts to the truck’s function
  • Postponing or failing to perform diagnostic truck inspections
  • Pressuring truck drivers to continue driving and ignore the federal law regulation 

It’s important to understand that determining liability can be incredibly difficult in a truck accident claim because of the number of parties involved.

Proving Damages

In personal injury, damages can refer to the physical, mental, emotional, or financial harm the victim suffered and the monetary compensation they’re entitled to because of the harm they suffered. An attorney must prove the existence of damages (proving that your injuries are because of the accident) and establish your need for damages (demonstrate that you need maximum compensation to get your life back on track). 

Compensation for a Spring Truck Accident

The goal of many attorneys is to reach a settlement with those responsible for damages. However, they will always do whatever it takes to obtain the maximum compensation you deserve, even if it means filing a lawsuit and going to court. In a successful claim or lawsuit, you will likely recover the following compensation:

  • Medical cost
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical limitations
  • Disfigurement 
  • Loss of earning capacity

When you work with Mott & Moffett, you can be sure that our attorneys will aggressively pursue maximum compensation.

Compensation for Fatal Truck Accidents

Unfortunately, collisions with large commercial trucks can result in fatalities. Truck accidents are hazardous because of these trucks’ size, weight, and cargo. It’s incredibly devastating to lose a loved one because of another person’s negligent actions. Not only are you trying to mourn and deal with the loss of a loved one, but you have to deal with truck companies only looking to protect their bottom line. The wrongful death attorneys at Mott & Moffett are committed to offering our clients the legal and emotional support they need to hold the parties responsible for your loss accountable. By filing a wrongful death claim, you may be able to cover the following compensation:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of financial contributions
  • Loss of care, maintenance, support, advice, and counsel
  • Loss of companionship, love, comfort, and society 
  • Loss of inheritance you may have received if your family member had lived the normal expected lifetime

You may also be able to recover compensation for the medical expenses, physical pain, and mental anguish your loved one suffered prior to passing away because of the accident.
