I've Been Injured in a Semi-Truck Accident, What Do I Do Now?
Because deadly crashes occur every day, the trucker's insurance adjusters
and attorneys know how to handle these cases to their own benefit. They
will probably offer you a tempting settlement. They may seem charismatic,
charming and helpful, and will probably ask you for a recorded statement
or your signature on a few forms.
Whatever you do, do not give any statements and do not sign paperwork before
consulting with a knowledgeable attorney.

Do I Have a Truck Accident Claim?

Hear It From Our Past Clients
"Bryan Baer represented me in two car accidents: one where I was rear-ended
by a commercial truck and another that occurred five months later when
my daughter and I were T-boned by an individual who ran a red light. I
read good reviews about him on this site and chose to give him a chance.
Boy, am I glad I did! He's reliable, understanding, professional,
patient..the list goes on! He never treated me as "just another client"
and promptly responded to every email/phone call. Considering the first
accident was my first ever, I asked several questions - oftentimes twice!!!
Bryan (along with his paralegal, Matthew Blake) made sure I understood
everything and kept me informed throughout the entire process. This is
the primary reason I hired him to represent me after my second accident.
In both cases, Bryan made sure I was satisfied with my settlement BEFORE
settling, which was a very important factor. Though I hope I'll never
suffer another car accident, in the event that I do I'll definitely
choose Bryan to represent me again."
Benefits of Hiring a Truck Accident Lawyer
If you have been injured in a semi-truck accident, it is important to understand
what you will encounter in the aftermath. The trucker typically calls
the accident into the truck company and sometimes that company has lawyers,
insurance adjusters, or a crash investigation team on the scene within
the hour. The company wants any evidence that will help its case and limit
its liability. Because truck companies are typically big corporations,
they have advantages over you. Therefore, it is important to hire an injury
lawyer as soon as possible following your accident.
An attorney from Kalka & Baer can help you:
Collect and preserve the accident evidence. Hiring a lawyer who is experienced in 18 wheeler collisions is critical,
as he or she will know what to look for and how to preserve the evidence
that is essential to your case. This may include the truck driver's
logbooks, witness statements, police report, and even the truck's
black box. Most trucks are equipped with an electronic control module,
which could be vital to your case, as it contains important details about
the truck before the crash.
Negotiate with the insurance company. Hiring a skilled attorney will help in your negotiations with the insurance
company. The insurance adjusters are trained to settle your case for as
little money as possible. You will most likely receive less of a settlement
if you face the insurance company alone, as opposed to working with a
Get excellent medical care. Experienced personal injury lawyers who are familiar with the local community
will know the best doctors to consult for the best medical treatment.
Some doctors testify at trial better than others and are more meticulous
about writing medical reports that insurance companies will understand.
