Grants Trucking Accidents
Lawyers with Experience
Because of the sheer size and weight of commercial trucks, their speed, and their momentum as they barrel down the road, if you are in an accident with a big rig the damage to your vehicle can be more serious than in a typical car accident — and so can the injuries to you and your passengers.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, don’t talk to the trucking company’s insurance firm alone, and don’t take their first offer. In order to get what you deserve, you need to hire a lawyer. And not just any lawyer — you need a lawyer who has a successful record of dealing with truck accidents and a history of getting clients the compensation they deserve.
When handling a trucking accident there are many different factors to consider in order for the accident victims to get the proper compensation. For instance, an experienced lawyer knows that commercial trucks now use black boxes and satellite tracking, which record data that could be vital to your case, such as the truck driver’s speed, their braking time, and other factors. They also know what federal regulations truck drivers and trucking companies have to follow, and how if these regulations were not followed properly this could have caused the accident.

Who Should be Held
Responsible for a Truck Accident?
Determining who is at fault in a truck accident is very important, but it is not as cut-and-dry as you might think. Determining fault can be difficult, and proving fault is even harder.
It is not just the driver of the truck who may be liable. The driver’s employer, the company transporting the payload, the owner of the vehicle, and the company that loaded the cargo may all be responsible to different degrees.
Again, it takes a lawyer with experience to know how to determine who should be held responsible and how to make them pay the appropriate compensation.
