People who are in a vehicle that is struck by a semi truck are likely to have significant physical injuries and severe mental trauma. In all of these cases, the victims who decide to seek compensation for their injuries from the liable party (or parties) can benefit from a thorough legal approach, like ours, to their personal injury claim.
For example, it’s important to take the investigation slowly and carefully in order to identify what went wrong and exactly how the accident occurred.
Some big rig crashes happen because a trucker is too fatigued or distracted to drive safely. This is atrocious because these are preventable crashes. There are federal regulations that cover these matters and provide guidelines that truckers and trucking companies are expected to follow. The chance of an accident occurring is reduced considerably when the trucker follows those regulations.
When an investigation reveals non-compliance with those regulations, it can lend credibility to any case you hope to make that the trucker shouldn’t have been behind the wheel and is at fault for the accident. Approaching a case in a methodical manner and picking apart each potential element like this that needs to be presented to the insurance company or jury is the best way to bolster your negotiations.
