Decatur Truck Accident Attorneys

The massive size and weight of the semis that we share our roadways with help to ensure that any accidents they’re involved in are especially dangerous and destructive. If you’re involved in a truck accident, the size differential between your car and the truck alone leaves you extremely vulnerable to serious injuries. If someone else’s negligence leaves you or someone you love injured in a truck accident, don’t delay reviewing your case with an experienced Decatur truck accident attorney.

Truck Accidents and Negligence

When you think about truck accidents, you might assume that the truck driver is always the point of negligence in the equation, but when it comes to truck accidents, negligence can actually take many forms, including:

  • Driver Negligence – The truck driver is obviously responsible for driving his or her truck safely in relation to the condition of the road, visibility, and the traffic all around. A fully loaded rig can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and when that amount of weight is barreling down the highway, even a minor act of neglect can be deadly. Negligent truck drivers are often responsible for life-threatening accidents, and common forms of dangerous truck driver negligence include distraction, impairment, excess speed, aggression, exhaustion, or violating federal regulations.
  • Trucking Company Negligence – The trucking company can bear a significant amount of responsibility when it comes to dangerous truck accidents. The trucking company is responsible for hiring safe, experienced drivers, for maintaining a safe fleet of rigs, for observing industry, state, and federal safety regulations, for hiring experienced mechanics, for adhering to careful maintenance schedules, and for not pressuring its drivers to exceed the hours-of-service regulations that are put in place to help keep dangerously drowsy truck drivers off our roadways.
  • Negligence on the Part of the Truck Manufacturer – The truck manufacturer puts its rigs on the road, and if these trucks aren’t based on safe designs to begin with, or have a manufacturing flaw built in, dangerous accidents can be the result.

When it comes to truck accidents, getting to the root of the negligence involved can be complicated but is critical to the integrity of your claim.

Your Damages

If a truck accident leaves you injured, you’re very likely to have suffered extremely serious damages, including:

  • Medical Expenses – The medical costs associated with a truck accident can be vast, including emergency care and transportation, surgery and hospitalization, ongoing care and treatment, physical therapy, and much more.
  • Lost Earnings – Sustaining serious injuries in a truck accident can lead to a serious reduction in earnings. Depending upon the severity of your injuries, you could face a diminished earning capacity into the future – if you are able to return to work at all. Because many of us closely associate our careers with our sense of accomplishment and self, a shift in your employability can contribute to serious emotional consequences.
  • Pain and Suffering – The immense impact and terrifying violence associated with truck accidents can lead to extreme levels of physical and emotional pain and suffering. In fact, these negative consequences can be some of the most difficult to overcome and should be carefully addressed in your truck accident claim.

Obtaining compensation that addresses your damages in their entirety is essential to your ability to follow the path toward your most complete recovery.

Dealing with the Insurance Company

You’ve been injured in a truck accident, which means that you’re going to be dealing with an insurance company. While the insurance representative has extensive experience guiding claims in the direction the company wants them to go, you have virtually no experience advocating for the compensation to which you are entitled – not to mention the fact that you are injured and extremely vulnerable. In other words, you are in no position to take on the insurance company (even if you wanted to). It’s always in your best interest to leave the insurance company to your dedicated truck accident attorney, who has impressive experience successfully negotiating for his or her injured clients’ fair terms.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
