Salem Truck Accident Lawyer
When you’ve been seriously injured in a trucking collision, you may need to hire a truck crash attorney from Joel H. Schwartz, PC. We’ll fight to see that you’re compensated for your losses.
Trucking accidents involving 18-wheelers and other large commercial vehicles are known to cause catastrophic injuries. If your life has been turned upside-down by your wreck, you deserve to be compensated for all your losses and suffering.
The negligent party who caused your crash should be held responsible, and a Salem truck accident lawyer from our office can help you make them pay for their careless mistakes.
Determining Fault in Your Salem Trucking Collision
Occasionally, the cause of a truck accident is easy to determine—the shredded rubber littering the roadway suggests a tire blew out, for instance. But not every collision is cut-and-dried. Often, it will take some serious investigating to determine the cause of a semi-truck crash.
It may surprise you to know that the fault doesn’t always rest with the trucker. Sometimes, the trucking company can be held responsible, along with several other parties who could have played a role in your crash.
The following are some factors that can lead to semi-truck crashes in Salem:
- Overloaded trucks
- Poorly vetted drivers
- Insufficient training
- Manufacturer-installed defective parts
- Maintenance or inspection negligence
- Distracted and drowsy driving
- Drunk or reckless driving
- Roads in disrepair
How to Handle the Trucking Company and Its Insurer
It would be nice if things always worked out the way they’re meant to. When you’re seriously injured in a Salem trucking collision and you file a personal injury claim, wouldn’t it be great if the trucking company or its insurer actually paid you a fair settlement without any hassle at all?
Unfortunately, situations like that are rare, if not completely fictional.
Here’s the tough reality: The trucker’s insurance company will try to deny your claim on any technicality it can find. Adjusters may question your injuries and try to place blame on you, and if none of that breaks your will, they will drag out the legal process as long as they’re able to, hoping you’ll just tap out and submit to their low settlement offer.
Don’t let them get away with this. If you do, the insurance company and negligent party have won. Your Salem 18-wheeler wreck attorney can communicate with the insurer and negligent party on your behalf. If necessary, we’ll even take them to court to see that you are paid the fair and comprehensive compensation you deserve.
