Studies show that our roadways are comprised of roughly 3.5 million truck drivers, operating vehicles weighing up to a massive 80,000 pounds.
When the average motorist is involved in an accident with a monstrous 18-wheeler, the resulting consequences and injuries are often catastrophic if not fatal.
If you are involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, big rig, dump truck, tractor-trailer, delivery truck, or any other commercial truck, it may be in your best interest to seek legal representation from a competent truck accident lawyer from Lexton Law Firm right away.
We have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to fight for your rights and help you achieve the most advantageous outcome possible.
Involved in a Truck Accident?
Being involved in a truck accident can be a harrowing experience. However, you must have the presence of mind to put your health first by seeking medical attention right away.
As much as possible, you should preserve as much evidence as you can should you decide to file a claim later on. This includes taking photographs of the scene of the accident, of your injuries, and of the damage to your property. Also, gather the names and contact details of all parties involved in the crash, including the responding police officer and any witnesses.
Remember, however, that you may not have all your facts straight. Call an attorney with the experience and resources to handle your case and avoid discussing any accident details with anyone apart from your lawyer.
Seek Legal Representation
Successfully pursuing a truck accident claim requires an in-depth understanding of both federal and state trucking regulations. Truck drivers are generally held to a higher standard compared to average motorists, while trucking companies are required to follow stringent procedures on issues such as maintenance, hiring practices, and record keeping.
If you are a victim of a truck accident, it would be to your advantage to work with a truck accident lawyer who knows how to gather, interpret, and present the evidence needed to prove your claim.
