Have you been injured in an accident involving a commercial semi tractor-trailer, truck or van? If so, the first thing you might ask from your personal injury attorney is: Do I have a case? CALL NOW for a FREE CONSULTATION! 317-639-9501
When you initially meet or discuss your claim with your injury lawyer, he or she may ask you several questions:
1. How did the accident occur and who was the party responsible for the accident?
2. What are your damages from the crash? Examples: what injuries did you receive as a result of the collision; to date, how much do your medical bills total; are you permanently impaired or disabled as a result of your accident; how will this affect your future wage earning capabilities? The sum total of these quantitative monetary damages will enter into the worth of your accident claim.
3. Is the monetary value of your damages (medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, etc) collectible? Examples: Does the defendant (i.e. the owner and/or driver of the van, truck or semi tractor-trailer responsible for the collision) have a liability insurance policy that will adequately cover your losses past, present and future; does the owner of the vehicle in which you were a passenger or were driving have an uninsured/underinsured liability insurance policy that exceeds the underlying policy of the responsible party?
Your lawyer will want to see the police report before filing your claim. In trucking accidents involving severe injury and/or death, the investigating agency (state police, deputy sheriffs, police department) will do an investigation and take photos of the accident scene, damaged vehicles, road and weather conditions. Their final investigative report, the testimony of witnesses to the accident and photos taken on-site will become very important to your case. Your personal injury lawyer will use that information to conduct a more in-depth study of the collision.
If you or someone you know has been killed or seriously injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, van or semi, the personal injury lawyer you select to represent you should be knowledgeable of federal, state and local rules and regulations for commercial truck owner/operators, accident reconstruction and interpretation of black box data. Your counsel should be an experienced trial lawyer and a skilled negotiator.
