Generally speaking, you may have a case and may be able to file a lawsuit if someone else acted negligently. In other words, the driver of the truck or the trucking company failed to exercise due care.
The following are some examples of negligence that may give rise to an accident claim:
- Fatigued driving that leads to a crash
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
- Distracted driving such as using a cell phone or GPS while driving
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Failing to stop for a stop sign or a traffic light
The value of your case will depend on a number of factors. No two cases are the same. Certain catastrophic injuries, which are common in trucking accidents, can cost victims millions of dollars over the cost of a lifetime. Our attorneys will examine the circumstances and details of your accident to calculate the long-term cost. The trucking company and its insurance carrier may try to offer a low-ball settlement at first. They generally want to keep costs down and may try to blame the victim in the car for causing the accidents.
To maximize the value of your case, you should work with an experienced attorney. The attorneys at the Mike Slocumb Law Firm have years of experience handling a variety of complex trucking accident claims.
