Truck accidents often involve multiple parties, including trucking companies, drivers, and insurance companies. Determining liability and navigating the intricacies of truck accident regulations can be complex. That’s where Jane Gordon Law comes in. I will thoroughly investigate the accident, gather evidence, consult with experts if necessary, and build a strong case on your behalf.
Throughout my career, I have represented numerous clients on trucking collision cases. I understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll that truck accidents can have on your life. My goal is to secure fair compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. I will negotiate with insurance companies and, if needed, take your case to court to fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.
Trucking accidents can be caused by various factors, including driver error, fatigue, speeding, distracted driving, improper vehicle maintenance, improper cargo loading, inclement weather conditions, and more. Determining the cause of the accident is crucial in establishing liability and pursuing a personal injury claim.
Immediately after a trucking accident, prioritize your safety and the safety of others involved. Seek medical attention for any injuries. Contact the authorities to report the accident. Document the scene by taking photos or videos of the vehicles, damages, and any visible injuries. Exchange information with the truck driver and obtain contact details of witnesses. Finally, consult with a personal injury attorney experienced in trucking accidents to understand your rights and legal options.
Liability in trucking accidents can extend beyond the truck driver. Depending on the circumstances, other potentially liable parties may include the trucking company, the vehicle owner, maintenance providers, cargo loaders, manufacturers of defective parts, and more. A thorough investigation is necessary to determine the parties responsible for the accident and establish negligence.
The compensation available in trucking accident cases may include medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and other related damages. The specific amount of compensation will depend on factors such as the severity of injuries, long-term impact, and the degree of negligence involved. As a personal injury attorney experienced in trucking accidents, I can assess your case and help you pursue fair compensation.
In Idaho, you typically have two years from the date of the trucking accident to initiate a legal claim. However, it’s essential to note that there may be exceptions or circumstances that can affect the statute of limitations in trucking accident cases. For example, if the accident resulted in a fatality, the time limit for filing a wrongful death claim may be different. A personal injury attorney can help you take prompt action within the timeline to receive the compensation you deserve.
Hiring a trucking injury attorney does not cost anything upfront. Jane Gordon Law uses a contingent fee model, meaning that her fee is a percentage of the settlement when you win. Please reach out for a free consultation to learn more.
