Are you injured because you were hit by a truck? If so, we urge you to meet with a knowledgeable South Hill truck accident lawyer. During a free case evaluation, a lawyer can hear what happened to you and determine if you’re eligible to receive a cash settlement.
At Ladenburg Law, you only pay us if we win you a settlement, so you risk nothing to reach out. Read on to learn a little more about truck accidents and the settlement process.
There are many reasons why truck collisions occur. Sometimes, more than one factor is involved. For instance:
Drivers of passenger vehicles can contribute to crashes, too. For instance, drivers may underestimate how much time or space trucks need to maneuver. If cars follow too closely, they may be in a truck driver’s blind spot.
If you are at least partially to blame for the accident, we’d still like to hear from you. Washington is a comparative fault state which means you still may be entitled to a partial settlement (RCW 4.22.070).
Proving liability can be complicated in a truck accident case because you may be dealing with a truck driver who was working on the job. In addition, it’s possible that other drivers were involved.
Involving a seasoned personal injury attorney on your case can remove the legal stress off your plate. Our attorneys have decades of experience and can investigate the facts of the case and fight for your best interest.
We do recommend you involve us as soon as possible. The quicker you put us on the case, the better our chances for gathering key evidence and aiding you to win the best settlement possible. Besides this, the State of Washington limits the time you’re eligible to file a claim to three years and insurance companies may have additional restrictions. Bottom line: don’t wait.
