You’ll want a trucking accident specialist for this one.

If you were involved in a trucking accident, you’ll want to take a different legal path than you would for a normal car accident. Trucking accident cases are known to be longer and more complex than standard car accident claims for several reasons:
It’s urgent to speak with a trucking accident attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you are able to receive fair compensation before your case expires.

What damages can be claimed in a truck accident lawsuit?

These are some (but not all) of the general and special damages plaintiffs may be able to collect for their accidents. Keep in mind that, in most states, you only have between 2-3 years to file a truck accident claim before the statute of limitations expires.

What can I expect from my truck accident settlement?

While an exact amount is impossible to predict, previous verdicts range from tens of thousands to tens of millions. It’s important to note that your case will be individually assessed, meaning your settlement will not be shared with others. Our priority is to ensure the best possible outcome for you, not inflating attorney profits.

Frequently asked questions about truck accident injury claims

If you have anything else you want to ask, reach out to us.

Who can be found liable in a trucking accident?
Because there are usually more parties involved, determining who is at-fault in a truck collision is more complex than it would be for your standard car crash. Here are some examples of parties who could be found liable in a truck accident:

  • The truck driver for inadequate driving.

  • The trucking company for failing to screen drivers or train them correctly.

  • The truck manufacturer, in cases of faulty machinery or poor maintenance.

  • A freight company for unsafe cargo weight distribution.
Are trucking accident cases hard to win?

They tend to be, though it partially depends on which state you live in. If you live in Texas, Iowa, or Florida, you may have a hard time filing a claim because of state laws shielding trucking companies from liability. A few other states are trying to pass similar laws.

 

Trucking corporations and truck lobbyists also create far more pushback against vehicle crash lawsuits than you would expect from a standard car crash case. Because damages tend to be more severe in truck accidents, these cases are costly and highly time-consuming, and the trucking industry is actively attempting to make it harder for victims to be awarded fair settlements against commercial vehicle corporations.

How much will this legal representation cost me?

Similarly to auto accident lawyers, the trucking attorneys in our network will also work on a contingency basis, and you are not obligated to pay any legal fees unless you win your case.

A typical attorney fee for an accident settlement will fall between 30 to 40 percent, and your medical and property damage costs are deducted from the money left over.
