How Our Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyers Will Fight for You
If you have been in a commercial vehicle accident, and you are thinking about contacting a lawyer, you may be wondering how a lawyer could help you obtain a better outcome in your case, particularly if it already seems to clearly be the other driver’s fault. There are several ways a qualified commercial vehicle accident lawyer can help you obtain a better result in your case. Continue reading to learn more about how our commercial vehicle accident lawyers will fight for you:
Investigate the Accident, the Driver, and the Company Who Hired and Trained the Driver
The first step of investigating your claim is to investigate the specific facts regarding how the accident happened, by looking at the crash report, taking and reviewing photos of the scene, obtaining witness statements, obtaining and reviewing video from the responding officers’ recorders, obtaining and reviewing 911 tapes, etc. If needed, we will also retain the services of an accident reconstructionist to help us prove it was the other persons’ fault. In commercial vehicle cases, we will also review the pertinent state and federal regulations regarding the operation of commercial vehicles and pull the records of the driver and his company to see if they have had problems before with maintaining and operating their vehicles, etc. Our thorough lawyers will work diligently to ensure that they gather and review all of the information they need to give us the best chance to win your case.
Determine Who is Liable
One way a commercial vehicle accident lawyer fights for you is to thoroughly look into your accident to determine who is liable. Sometimes, it’s not just a negligent driver that causes an accident. Sometimes it could be an issue with a part on a truck, which would cause the manufacturer to be blamed. Part of your accident could be caused by the company that employed the driver by failing to properly select, train and/or equip their employees. There are several factors that come into play when it comes into a commercial vehicle accident, and your attorney will look into every avenue for you, so you are compensated properly.
Negotiate with Insurance Adjusters
Something else a lawyer will do to fight for you is negotiate with insurance adjusters. Most people have never had to deal with insurance companies when it comes to making a claim for compensation, and insurance companies specifically train their employees to take advantage of that fact. In fact, insurance companies spend millions of dollars each year, training their employees on how to reduce the value of or completely deny these claims. Our lawyers have years of experience dealing with insurance adjusters and can effectively ensure that you are not taken advantage of during negotiations.
Get Your Compensation
Commercial vehicle accident lawyers will be able to get you fair compensation. They will look into every possible applicable element of damages to be sure that you receive all of the money that you are entitled to receive, and they will put together an effective settlement demand package to lay out for the defendants exactly how we will prove our claim against them and what the claim is worth and why.
