Truck Accident Lawyer In Dearborn

If you’ve been injured in a crash involving a truck, you’ll benefit greatly from some legal advice.

Who’s At Fault?

The most common characteristics of all accidents between a truck and car involve turning errors, lane change errors, and visibility issues when backing up. Some crashes are caused by some combination of a truck’s braking, acceleration, and visibility characteristics — and the car driver’s ignorance of these characteristics.

However, the truck can also be overloaded, or oversized. There might be excessive speed, fatigue, weather and road conditions to consider as contributing factors — or lack of driver training or poor truck maintenance.

Who Is Liable?

Proving fault in a crash between a passenger car and truck is more complicated than you think, and actual liability could rest with several entities.

The trucking company may be liable when the driver is negligent, but if the truck was overloaded, it’s more likely the distributor that loaded the truck is liable. If there are mechanical issues, it could be the leasing company responsible for vehicle maintenance who can be held liable.

If you are considering a personal injury claim to recover damages, Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is a law firm that’s ready to identify and document all factors of potential liability, interview witnesses, and secure expert testimony, if necessary, to make the case. The insurance company that is representing the trucking company does not want to go to court, but we will be ready to go to court, if necessary, to get the compensation you need and deserve.

Don’t Wait Too Long

Clients tell us all the time that they wished they’d called us sooner. Even if you believe that the insurance claim process will be simple and straightforward, consulting with an attorney can help ensure it remains that way.

If you’ve been injured, in the immediate aftermath of your crash with a tractor-trailer or semi-truck, you may not be physically or emotionally capable of handling any kind of settlement discussion. Getting legal representation early on can take work off your plate, and hopefully provide you with some peace of mind.

There’s often significant background work involved in the settlement process, too, and the full extent of your injuries need to be fully evaluated when considering damages and compensation.

Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is ready to meet with you at your convenience to learn more about your situation and make recommendations. After this free consultation, if we decide to work together, it will be a contingency fee agreement. This means we don’t receive any payment until you get your settlement.
