You could be owed significant finances from the trucker and the trucking company, but you’ll probably have to fight them throughout a case to get it. Let us act on your behalf, so you can swing against them confidently!
Types of Injuries Suffered in Truck Accidents
Truck accidents might happen less often than car accidents, but the results are often much, much worse. Due to the massive size and weight of the average commercial truck, the accidents they cause are oftentimes truly devastating to anyone involved who was driving a smaller vehicle. First responders know they need to move fast when they get a call about a truck accident because the likelihood of someone suffering a catastrophic, life-changing, or life-threatening injury is high.
Injuries that are often associated with truck accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord damage and paralysis
- Multiple broken bones
- Permanent disfigurement
- Internal organ damage
Fatalities are not uncommon in truck accident cases, either. If you have lost a loved one due to the mistakes of a truck driver, then we can help you honor their memory and fight for compensation through a wrongful death claim. The damages in a wrongful death claim will be slightly different from those in a truck accident claim, but the overall premise is the same: compensation and justice are owed to the injured parties and their families.
Who Can Be Liable for a Truck Accident?
Liability in a truck accident claim can get complicated quickly. At Mama Justice, we usually expect there to be more than one defendant in a truck accident case because there are so many parties involved in the management of a commercial truck. When something goes wrong and a truck driver hits someone, any number of those involved parties could reasonably be at the receiving end of a claim or lawsuit.
Truck accident liability could rest on the shoulders of the:
- Truck driver who was operating the vehicle and did so unsafely.
- Trucking company who negligently hired a trucker unfit for the job, such as one without a valid commercial driver’s license.
- Load crew who worked for a third-party company that unsafely loaded cargo onto or into the truck.
- Maintenance crew who worked for a third-party company that performed inadequate repairs on the truck.
- Truck manufacturer who sold a defective truck part that would later contribute to a truck accident.
When there are multiple defendants in an injury claim, there could be additional hurdles to surpass to get the compensation that is needed. However, the upside is that multiple defendants mean multiple insurance policies to file against, which can give a claimant a better chance of getting a maximized recovery amount that truly reflects the money they lost through medical bills, missing wages, pain, and suffering.
Why You Should Hire a Truck Accident Attorney Now
Hiring a truck accident attorney in Jackson from a firm like Mama Justice is highly advised because, quite simply, truck accident claims aren’t simple. You could be fighting multiple defendants to try to get the compensation you deserve. Without a legal professional backing you and making the most of your claim as it develops, you could risk handing them an easy win because you didn’t understand a liability law, courtroom expectation, etc.
