FAQs

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

What to do following a truck accident?

Collisions between trailers or other ‘big rigs’ or truck and passenger cars, large commercial vehicles, tankers, and semis are much more severe than any different types of crashes. The size of the destruction and the truck’s commercial ownership makes it more complicated to obtain compensation for the injuries suffered.

Claims for personal injury or wrongful death cases or any other claims can be quite confusing following a truck crash and requires a severe amount of investment, time, and resources. So, make sure you call the police or any emergency worker immediately to assist with your case or any injuries or burns.

The police will take all the necessary evidence, photos, notes, and statements from all the involved parties and witnesses. If possible, you should also document as much as you can or take pictures of the damage or injuries to support your case. Doing so can help you ensure that not a single detail is missed and everything is documented correctly, even by the police.

What are the major causes of truck accidents?

In most cases, truck accidents are caused by the driver’s negligence, the driver falling asleep on the wheels, or sheer recklessness. In such cases, the truck driver or the company can be held responsible for a legal claim. Generally, there are multiple ‘third-parties’ involved in the operations of commercial trucks. Anyone or multiple parties can share the responsibility of the accident and owe you compensation. There are different types of causes as follows:

  • Driver Error: Despite an increase in the number of vehicles on highways, truck drivers always drive recklessly, sometimes tired, or occasionally drunk to reach mileage goals set by their companies.
  • Road Conditions: Sometimes even roadways can be held responsible for increasing the number of truck accidents. Too many potholes, weakened or crumbling roads, faulty design, or neglected maintenance, and more. In such cases, you can claim compensation from the local government.
  • Low maintenance tucks: Trucks are often driven 1000 miles per week to reach the mileage goals. In such circumstances, if they are not adequately cared for, like poor brakes, cracked windshield, or low air pressure in the tires. All these problems must be dealt with regularly to avoid any major accidents.
  • Improperly loaded cargo: Loading goods in the shipments or trucks must be done carefully and by the law. If they are loaded improperly, goods may spill out, causing significant destruction and injuries.

How much does it cost to hire a Truck Accident Lawyer?

Generally, lawyers charge clients on a contingency basis for truck accident cases. This means you only pay when you have won the case, or your lawyer wins damages for you. This makes it possible for everyone to hire a lawyer and get equal access to the justice system. Thus, the cost of hiring a lawyer only comes when the legal representation wins the case for you. You will owe nothing up-front or out of your pocket to the lawyer.

I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
