Why You Need a Truck Accident Lawyer
Posted on behalf of Lynch Law Firm on Jan 05, 2017 in Truck Accidents News
A truck accident is often a devastating experience that can cause traumatic injuries. Unfortunately, these types of claims can easily become complicated, making it difficult for you to get the compensation you need for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other expenses.
Having an experienced lawyer by your side can take much of this stress off of your shoulders. There are a number of significant benefits to hiring a truck accident lawyer after an accident, including:
Identifying all Responsible Parties
Truck accidents are unique in that there can be multiple parties to blame for an accident, including the:
- Truck driver
- Owner of the truck
- Manufacturer of the truck
- Cargo company
Each party has different responsibilities that are meant to ensure the safety of the truck, the driver and all other motorists on the road. If anyone fails in their responsibility, it can lead to a devastating accident.
Hiring an attorney is vital to ensuring that an investigation is conducted to determine the exact cause of the accident and that all liable parties are held accountable for the resulting damage.
Understanding Complex Laws and Regulations
The trucking industry is heavily regulated at both the state and federal level. These rules and guidelines help ensure everyone’s safety on the road by limiting the length of trips a driver can take, the speed at which trucks can travel, the weight of cargo trucks can carry and much more.
Only an experienced attorney will have a deep understanding of these regulations and can help you determine if any laws were broken and caused your accident. This information will help in building a case on your behalf.
