Why You Need a Manhattan Truck Accident Lawyer

Filing a claim against a trucking company can be very intimidating when you’re not being advocated for by a lawyer. Trucking companies and their insurance companies have powerful teams of attorneys on their side. Attempting to fight them alone can result in a lower settlement amount than what you need to cover your extensive medical bills and future care. A truck accident lawyer will know what type of evidence is needed to be successful in your claim and will swiftly gather the following: 

  • Driver’s logbook 
  • Truck’s black box (when applicable, has critical information regarding the truck, its trip, and where it was right before the accident)
  • Vehicle maintenance log
  • Driver’s training history
  • Police reports and results from any alcohol or dug tests
  • Length of skid marks
  • Inspection of the brake pads and other vehicle components

Some trucking companies may destroy available evidence that you need for a chance at a fair settlement. Contacting an experienced truck accident lawyer as soon as possible will ensure it is preserved. 

How Much is My Truck Accident Claim Worth?

The amount of compensation you are entitled to can vary greatly, given the circumstances specific to your case. Some of the factors that will potentially be considered are: 

  • The cost of your losses
  • Extent of your injuries and how they will impact you in the future
  • Lost income and if you will be able to return to work 
  • Whether or not a death was involved 
  • How much insurance coverage is available. 

No two cases are alike, which means an attorney can only evaluate your case and give you an estimate of what to expect. Doing so may involve consulting with medical experts, economists, and life care planners to determine the amount of compensation you will need for future medical expenses, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
