Can I File a Personal Injury Claim for My Trucking Accident?
If you were hurt in a trucking accident due to someone else's negligence, you're probably eligible for a personal injury lawsuit.
For example, if you get hit by a truck driver because they're not looking at the road or paying attention to traffic laws, you can file for a personal injury lawsuit to receive compensation for injuries you receive and expenses you incur due to the accident.
Truckers are given a special license because the vehicles they operate are capable of doing tremendous damage to humans and structures. Truckers also receive extensive training and are responsible for operating their vehicles with care.
What is Driving an Increase in Trucking Accidents
Despite the training truck drivers receive, trucking fatality rates recently reached the highest level in thirty years, partially due to the trucking industry pushing quotas for truckers that often result in tired or distracted driving. Unfortunately, civilians often pay the cost, sustaining major injuries in trucking accidents.
If you're engaged in a trucking accident, you should immediately compile as much evidence as you can about the accident. A personal injury lawyer can work with you to catalog evidence and develop a strong personal injury case.
What Should You Keep Documented After a Truck Accident
You should also keep meticulous documentation of any medical expenses, lost professional wages, etc. that you incur due to the accident. Keeping track of these details allows you to pursue an equitable judgment and recoup compensation for your expenses and injuries.
Your personal injury lawyer can also help you make other important decisions, such as whether to settle out of court or pursue a court-ordered judgment in your personal injury case.
