Thousands of people die in truck crashes in the US every year according to the National Highway Travel Safety Administration. Additionally, more than 70 percent of the people who die in these accidents aren’t even truck drivers. Instead, they’re driving in a car that is involved in the crash. Large trucks can crush cars like pieces of paper and leave the occupant of a vehicle with catastrophic injuries including:
Head or neck trauma
Injuries related to crushing damage
Soft tissue damage
If you were involved in an accident with a truck, a lawyer can help you pursue financial compensation. A lawyer can help you recover money for damages resulting from an accident like:
Medical bills – including any past, present, or future expenses you incurred from your accident.
Rehabilitation costs – long- and short-term costs required to return your body to the level of ability you had before your accident.
Decreased quality of life – did your injury cause damages that prevent you from performing work or leisure activities?
Lost wages – if you missed any work because of your accident.
Call attorney Friedman today if you have any questions for a lawyer regarding specific aspects of your 18 wheeler truck accident.
Attorney Friedman has extensive experience helping his clients navigate the civil court system. In order to win your case, you’ll need to execute a number of specific legal tasks including:
Drafting and filing a complaint with the court. A complaint is a legal document that initiates a lawsuit. It describes how the defendant harmed the plaintiff and outlines a number of specific remedies to rectify the situation.
Collecting evidence for discovery. After you file a complaint, you’ll need to submit any evidence to the court during the discovery process. Evidence can include documents like reports from the police or an insurance company. If you don’t file a piece of evidence during discovery, you won’t be able to use it during your trial.
Negotiating with opposing parties. In many truck accident cases, you’ll be facing off against an insurance company in court. These companies have nearly limitless resources to fight claims like yours. However, an experienced lawyer can help you negotiate with the defendant in your 18 wheeler truck accident claim.
