Accidents involving semi-trucks and tractor trailers can cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries as a result of the increased size and weight of these vehicles.
Tractor trailer trucks are a common sight on New York’s and Vermont’s roads and highways. Overloaded trucks, defective brakes or other system failures, loose cargo, weather conditions, and even a driver’s carelessness or fatigue are frequent causes of trucking accidents.
It is critical to consult with an attorney after you’ve been involved in a trucking accident in order to properly preserve evidence from the crash. GPS and “Black Box” data can provide details about the truck’s operation itself and the events leading to the accident and must be preserved in the event of a future lawsuit. An attorney will be able to quickly take the steps necessary steps to see that this data is preserved by both the trucking and insurance company, increasing your chances of a recovery in the future.
An attorney will also be able to assist in getting your medical expenses and lost wages paid for by the at-fault trucking or insurance company, as well as obtain compensation for your pain and suffering. Trucking accidents frequently involve more than one vehicle – having an attorney advocating on your behalf will force the trucking and insurance company to immediately address your unpaid medical and lost wage expenses without unnecessary delay.
