Seven Things You Must Know NOW After a Truck Accident
Experienced Truck Accident Attorneys
Our Promise to You
If we accept your case, we promise you unrelenting dedication and excellent communication. We promise you that every single safety violation that led to this crash will be discovered and aggressively litigated on your behalf. We promise to hold the trucking company fully responsible for all of the injuries or the wrongful deaths that violations of these mandatory safety laws have caused. Truck Accident Attorneys Roundtable is a national law firm with members in all states in which we operate.
Because of this promise that we make to our clients, we can only accept a certain number of these serious truck accident cases nationwide. But we will make this additional promise to you: if our roundtable of attorneys cannot personally accept your case, we will still make sure that we recommend to you an excellent and experienced truck accident lawyer in your city and state that understands trucking law and litigation.
The three founding members who started the Truck Accident Attorney Roundtable did so in large part because we were shocked at the number of injury lawyers who aggressively advertise and market for truck accident cases, but who have little experience or real qualifications to handle these cases. Our most important core value is to take on and change an industry that has become very unsafe today. By protecting our own clients and through the results we reach on behalf of our clients, we are working to make dangerous trucking companies more safe, and to help save lives.
Sadly, inexperienced lawyers litigating truck accident cases give these unsafe trucking companies a pass on safety. Trucking companies that are not held fully accountable learn that they can save money by ignoring mandatory safety laws that are meant to protect us all. The injured victims of preventable truck crashes are harmed twice – once by an unsafe trucking company that causes a completely preventable injury or death, and again by the lawyer who fails to uncover these safety violations that caused the crash. The dangerous trucking companies get away with it, and our roads become more dangerous.
If we cannot personally accept your case, then we will do everything we can to make sure that you are put in contact with a truly qualified truck accident lawyer in your city or in your state who has demonstrated the understanding, knowledge, and experience to take on the big trucking companies and who shares these core values. As past-presidents of the AAJ Truck Accident Lawyers Litigation Group, and as lawyers who have spoken at several hundred truck accident litigation seminars throughout the United States for lawyers, we are in a unique position to help accident victims cut through the confusing morass of legal advertisers to truly find an experienced and well-qualified attorney to help you. This is how we can change an industry and make the roads safer for us all.
Utilizing our extensive trucking industry knowledge
to win your injury lawsuit.
Getting into any type of motor vehicle accident is bad enough, but when you are involved in a crash that involves a tractor trailer or other commercial vehicle, the repercussions can be devastating.
The size, weight and ability to lose control of these large trucks make them deadly in a crash. In addition to excess damage to your car, you and your passengers could sustain massive injuries - from broken bones to paralysis and from brain injuries to severed limbs. Whatever injury you (or your loved one) suffered in the collision, you deserve compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical and mental pain and suffering
Take the first step to getting your life back. Call 877-999-TAAR (8227) or complete our contact form to schedule a free, no-obligation initial consultation with one of our truck accident attorneys today.
What you need to know about trucking industry law
In addition to the traffic laws that everyone on the road has to follow, the trucking industry has an extensive list of regulations and laws called the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs).
The FMCSRs guide the self-regulated trucking industry with regulations spanning all aspects of trucking, including:
- Licensing requirements for truck drivers
- Required documentation
- Limits on consecutive work hours by hours
- Weight, size and route limitations
- Trucking insurance minimums
These regulations and their interpretations are vital when building a truck accident lawsuit. Learn more about these trucking laws.
How to find the trucking industry attorney you need
Not all truck accident attorneys were created equal. Because trucking companies are represented by large, well-oiled teams of lawyers, you need a lawyer with extensive trucking industry lawsuit and settlement experience to level the playing field.
The important differences between truck and car accident cases
Cars and trucks may both be motor vehicles, but the power and size of tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles creates a big difference between a collision involving two cars and one that includes at least one truck.
In addition to typically more damage and injuries in a trucking crash, filing a lawsuit for a truck accident is more complex than car crash cases. Just a few differences include:
- Time sensitivity of trucking cases
- Different laws governing trucking industry
- Dynamics of the crash
