When a big rig slams into your vehicle and you are injured, your recovery is usually your primary concern. The medical care you need can often be long-term, especially if the injuries were severe. Even though you are focused on your healing, you should consider the possibility of seeking compensation. We can help you to do the necessary investigation that can help you find facts and points to support your claims.
There are some key components of the accident that we must check into. One of these is the suitability of the truck to be on the roadway. Were the inspections up-to-date? Were they conducted properly? Were there any recalls on components that might have led to the crash?
Another key component is what the driver was doing prior to the crash and at the time of the crash. Was the trucker in compliance with the Hours of Service guidelines? Was there anything distracting the driver? Was the driver rushing to meet deadlines?
It is sometimes difficult to find these key components. In some cases, the answers lie in the police report. In other cases, we will have to do our own investigation to determine what components were present at the time of the accident.
You shouldn’t have to deal with the effects of the accident on your own. We are here to help you with the legal side of the accident so that you can work toward getting the money you need to pay for necessary care, as well as other damages that occurred because of the accident.
