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?

To determine if you have a truck accident injury claim, you will need to look at two factors:

  • The types of injuries you suffered
  • What caused the injuries in the accident

Common Reasons for Trucking Accidents in GA

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 knowledgeable attorney.
  • 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.
