How we work to hold distracted truckers accountable

As previous posts on this blog have discussed, a distracted trucker is a hazard to all those who are sharing the road with him or her.

A driver who takes his or her eyes off of the road even for a few seconds to send that one really important message may travel a considerable distance before even realizing that an accident is imminent. By that time, it is too late to do much, and the truck will likely collide with a smaller vehicle, inflicting a lot of damage on both the smaller car and its occupants.

Unfortunately, it is a rare day when a distracted truck driver will come out and admit that they weren't paying attention to their driving and thus caused an accident, as doing so may cost the driver his job and the driver's company thousands of not millions of dollars.

As such, the victim of a truck accident is going to want to conduct a thorough investigation and make sure that all questions about the accident have been answered before he or she takes that settlement offer from the trucking company or the trucking company's insurance carrier.

Our law office is well aware that both trucking and insurance companies want to cut their costs and pay less compensation rather than turn over everything a victim asks for. As part of our commitment to fighting for every dollar our clients are entitled to, we will investigate the circumstances of a truck accident, using legal process as necessary to get the information we need.

We will work hard to demonstrate that the trucker may have been on his or her cell phone or otherwise distracted at the time of a serious accident, even when the trucker tries to blame the accident on someone or something else. In this way, we help our clients get both the justice they deserve and the financial help they need in order to put their lives together.
