1. Giving a Recorded Statement After a Truck Accident

3 Truck Accident FactsOftentimes when we have clients who have been involved in a serious trucking incident, they tell us that the representative for the trucking company or the trucking company’s insurance company has been calling them wanting to take their statement. It is never a good idea to give a statement to the insurance adjuster or the trucking company’s representative without first talking to an experienced trial lawyer in this area of the law. The reason being is that insurance companies and trucking companies are not in the business of paying out claims to compensate those they have injured. They’re there to make money for themselves and for their shareholders.

We understand this at the Chavez Law Firm. We understand the politics, so to speak, in play, and we guide our clients through the process, from the beginning to the very end. If you have questions with regard to this process or whether or not you should give a statement to the insurance adjuster or the trucking company’s representative, first call us. We are more than happy to answer your questions and help you in this regard.

2. Differences Between Truck Accident Claims and Car Crash Claims

Commercial truck crashes are very different than automobile crashes. The reason is the impact of the collision—these accidents can cause serious injury and even death. What’s important for a client seeking help after being injured in a collision with an 18-wheeler is to seek an attorney who has trial experience in this area of the law. These are not like car crash cases. In this area of the law, an experienced lawyer knows to hire the right crash reconstruction experts, guide you through medical treatment, and how to prove negligence on the part of the commercial trucking company. There are three basic things we will look at: 1) a lack of supervision, 2) a lack of training in regards to the driver, and 3) faulty equipment. If a trucking company isn’t doing the necessary inspections, then it is a recipe for disaster on our roadways.

At the Chavez Law Firm, we want to make our community safer for everyone. If you have any more questions, please call us today.

3. Determining the Value of a Truck Accident Claim

Oftentimes, the clients involved in trucking collision/trucking wreck cases ask how long these cases take. One of the factors that goes into how long these cases take is the amount of medical treatment that clients need. We at the Chavez Law Firm are experienced in guiding our clients through the maze of medical treatment that our clients need. Another factor is one has to put together a persuasive case for the jury so that, if necessary, the jury can tell the negligent trucking company, or the insurance company that isn’t coming to the table with full and fair compensation for our clients, what is full and fair compensation. We hire the experts necessary for proving our case, in terms of medical experts and the crash reconstructionist, and we’re prepared for this from the very get-go.

If you have questions about your case, in terms of how to go through this process, please give us a call. We at the Chavez Law Firm have trial experience in these matters, and we’re happy to answer any and all of your questions.
