Truck accidents remain a major problem in Virginia, throughout the region, and around the country. Indeed, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that around 90 large commercial trucks are involved in deadly crashes in Virginia each year. That accounts for nearly 10 percent of all fatal accidents that occur within the state. Many more tractor trailers are involved in very serious crashes that lead to life-altering injuries. Commercial truck accidents also create particularly complex legal situations. If you have been injured in an accident with a large truck, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced Alexandria truck accident attorney who can help protect your legal rights and financial interests.
Your Attorney Will Collect Evidence
To recover the full and fair truck accident injury compensation that you deserve you will need to produce evidence that supports your claim. Key evidence comes in many different forms. Specifically, the following forms of evidence can be used to help support your legal claim:
- Photographs of your injuries;
- Your medical records;
- Supporting statements from your doctor;
- Photographs of the accident scene;
- Testimony from accident scene re-creation experts;
- Supporting statements from witnesses;
- Truck inspection or maintenance records;
- Electronic recording data from the truck.
Your Attorney Will Sort Out Liability
Truck accidents are especially complicated for many different reasons. One of those reasons is that sorting out liability is far more complex. Put simply, there are just many more parties that could potentially be held responsible for the accident. In some cases, more than one party may actually split the liability for your crash. Parties that are commonly found to be liable for commericial truck crashes include:
- The driver of the truck;
- The driver’s employer;
- The manufacturer of the truck or trailer; or
- The company that was leasing the truck.
Your Attorney Will Handle the Insurance Company
Finally, it is also necessary that you have an attorney by your side to help you handle the insurance company. As the American Bar Association (ABA) notes, the majority of personal injury claims settle before they actually go to trial. This means that you need to ensure that you reach a settlement agreement with the insurer that truly accounts for the full value of your injury claim. Ultimately, insurance companies do not have your best interests at heart. They will try to settle your claim for the lowest value possible. You need an attorney by your side who can fight to protect your rights.
