At Ketterer, Browne & Anderson, our trucking accident lawyers have represented plaintiffs injured in a wide range of trucking accident cases. We understand local state law, federal trucking regulations, and the investigative measures that are necessary to successfully resolve a trucking accident case, whether through mediation or civil trial.
If you or someone you love was involved in a trucking accident, please give our attorneys a call to discuss your legal rights and appropriate next steps.
The big trucking companies are typically well prepared to handle the aftermath of an accident. When an accident occurs, trucking companies call upon their own internal investigators and insurance adjusters to gather evidence and start building their defense to circumvent liability. If you or a loved one is involved in a truck accident, do not give any statements, written or oral, to insurance companies or investigators who claim that they are calling on behalf of the trucking company or its insurance representatives. Contact the skilled truck accident lawyers at Ketterer, Browne & Anderson as soon as possible. We will discuss your rights and possible next steps so that we may begin the necessary work to establish and support your claim.
Determining fault/liability: As multiple parties may be involved in a roadside or highway collision involving a truck, it can be difficult to determine which party is responsible and how to approach a multi-party truck accident case. We have extensive experience in this kind of complex litigation and are able to identify the responsible parties and pursue claims against them.
Conducting independent investigations: More often than not, commercial trucking companies hire their own team of investigators to respond to civil complaints after accidents of any size or scope. Because the investigator works for the trucking company, their reports are patently one-sided. We make sure to conduct a careful, thorough investigation of the accident using our own investigators and team of experts to ensure that a fair and accurate report is generated for your case.
Developing the legal elements of your case: Depending on the facts specific to your situation, we may allege that one or more parties involved in your accident behaved negligently. Negligent behaviors that may give rise to liability include:
In addition to negligence based on the conduct of the driver, there are several ways in which the trucking company can be negligent even if the driver himself is not negligent:
It is important to remember that determining liability is far more difficult in truck accident cases than in other motor vehicle accidents due in large part to the number of parties that may be involved.
Negotiating damages and settlement value: In a less complicated motor vehicle accident, the insurance company that represents the other driver or drivers must be contacted for purposes of negotiating a settlement on your behalf. Due to the complexities inherent to a trucking accident case, there are often multiple parties involved, including the trucking company itself. As such, a team of attorneys adept at handling complex civil litigation and pre-trial settlement negotiations is of the utmost importance. We are experienced in negotiating settlements with multiple parties involved in a single accident, including the various insurance companies, the truck driver himself, the trucking company, and any parts manufacturers that may be implicated in the crash.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries, wrongful death, or economic loss due to a truck driver’s reckless driving or other negligent conduct, please call the experienced truck driver accident attorneys at Ketterer, Browne & Anderson. We will discuss the appropriate next steps so that you can pursue the financial outcome you deserve.
