Truck Accident Lawsuits: How Your Attorney Develops Your Claim

At Viloria, Oliphant, Oster & Aman L.L.P., truck accidents comprise some of the most serious and deadly accidents that we see. In moments, a truck driving on the road can turn into a weapon of destruction, forever altering the lives of its victims for the worse. But a truck accident often doesn’t just happen in moments. Rather, it is the culmination of a domino effect of bad decisions and a lack of care.

A Lawyer Can Help Determine What Happened

If you are seriously injured or a loved one is killed in a truck accident, a personal injury attorney can help you take the steps necessary to maximize your financial recovery. The first step in developing your claim to figure out what happened.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration analyzed 120,000 truck accidents that occurred over two years, and found that the following factors are the most common contributory factors:

  • Vehicle problems, such as brake problems, a shift in cargo, or bald tires.
  • Driver error, like driving too fast, fatigue, following too closely, illegal maneuvers, illness, or drug or alcohol impairment.
  • Hazardous road conditions.

Pinpointing what happened is a complex process, especially when the victim or truck driver has perished or sustained horrific injuries. Further, the wreckage of the vehicles may be charred and unrecognizable. Fortunately, our legal team has the experience and skills necessary to conduct a thorough investigation via records, witnesses, and an examination of physical evidence.

We also invest time and resources into partnerships with accident reconstruction experts to piece together what happened and why it happened. The conclusions of this investigation help us determine exactly who should bear financial responsibility for your injury claim.

Establishing Damages

Beyond fault, a personal injury attorney must demonstrate that the negligence of the responsible parties resulted in a serious injury and establish what financial damages the victim should be entitled to. In building the most compelling claim possible, we work with established medical experts, life care planners, vocational rehabilitation specialists, financial experts, and liability specialists who can clearly articulate to a jury the devastating nature of your injuries and the many negative impacts that you face now and in the future.
