Why You Need a Truck Accident Attorney
It’s quite common for good, trusting people to believe that the trucking company and their insurance company will cover your losses fully. You have medical bills, and you can prove what occurred and that the truck driver was at fault. Yet, without the help of a Loveland truck accident attorney and the required accident reconstruction experts, your case may be at risk.
Working with an attorney from our office ensures several things:
- Your rights remain protected throughout this legal process.
- You learn what all of your compensation rights are – it’s rarely just medical bills.
- Insurance companies don’t get to put you on the spot or take advantage of you.
- You’re less likely to settle for less compensation than what you are owed.
- You can get the medical care you need.
The IIHS reports that over 4,000 people died in 2020 alone from large truck accidents in the United States. These drivers were tired, made mistakes, had poorly maintained vehicles, or were operating recklessly. They cost people their lives.
At the Law Office of Dianne Sawaya, we see how hard this is for you right now. We remain vigilant and dedicated to you throughout your case.
Common Injuries from Truck Accidents
The injuries you suffer after an 80,000-pound truck smashes into your car can be catastrophic. It is not uncommon for people to suffer long-term pain and permanent damage. Some of the most common injuries from truck accidents include:
- Broken bones or crushed limbs
- Internal organ damage from lacerations and force
- Traumatic brain injury from head-related injury
- Spinal cord damage
- Infections during the healing process
If you suffered any of these or other injuries, work with our Loveland truck accident attorneys to ensure you receive fair compensation. That may include your medical bills, emotional and physical pain and suffering, job retraining, lost time at work, and loss of quality of life.
What Makes Truck Accidents Unique?
Colorado state law makes it clear – if a truck driver (or anyone) causes injury to another driver, they are responsible for the losses faced by the victim. However, truck drivers are unique in that they tend to have high-powered insurance companies behind them who have the sole job of reducing how much is paid out for the claims filed against them.
There are numerous challenges that make truck accidents different from car accidents:
- Trucks are 20 to 30 times heavier than vehicles. They travel at fast rates of speed and are taller than most vehicles. All of this leads to much more significant damage.
- Insurance companies work aggressively to pin the blame for these accidents on the passenger car rather than the truck driver. They may try to trick you into admitting fault.
- Truck drivers are not always the only party at fault. It may also be the trucking company, the manufacturer of the vehicle, and the maintenance company.
For all these reasons, it is critical to have an experienced truck accident attorney by your side before you head into a courtroom. In fact, our goal is to work hard to settle your case out of court through long-term negotiations and hard work, but we will pursue litigation when it is necessary. Your recovery is always our top priority.
