What makes truck accidents so complicated?
There are many reasons why accidents involving commercial trucks can be so complicated. Overall, it’s generally because there are several parties involved in such accident claims, including the truck driver, the trucking company and sometimes even the company that loaded the contents of the truck. In addition, there’s the insurance companies for each company and all of their attorneys.
It’s also important to understand many other aspects of truck accidents when trying to obtain compensation for your crash. This includes:
- Causes of Truck Accidents
- Types of Truck Accidents
- Truck Accidents and Trucking Companies
- What To Do After Your Truck Accident
Truck accidents can be complicated. Choosing the right lawyer to represent you should be simple. That’s why we want to meet with you right away. We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and fight for your rights.
If you think you have a legal case after being involved in an accident caused by a truck driver, we strongly advise you to talk with an experienced truck accident lawyer. It’s important that the attorney knows your area and understands your state’s traffic laws. That’s because each state often has different rules and regulations when it comes to truck accidents.
Philadelphia truck accident attorney Michael Hanamirian knows Pennsylvania’s truck laws inside out. And best of all, he can review your case, free of charge. We provide a free case evaluation because we believe people involved in serious accidents deserve to know the legal options available to them.
If a lawyer says they can tell you exactly how much it will cost to handle your truck accident case, be very suspicious. That’s because every truck accident case is different. Some can be very straightforward. Others require a tremendous amount of work.
And even if a truck driver clearly caused your collision, your case could still end up being extremely complicated for many different reasons. Sometimes, it’s because the truck driver denies doing anything wrong. Other times, the truck company or its insurance company might fight your claim. As a result, your case may need to go to court. Preparing a truck accident claim for trial takes a tremendous amount of time and work, all of which can affect the legal costs associated with your case.
Fortunately, you don’t have worry about whether you can afford to hire The Hanamirian Firm. That’s because you only have to pay us if we secure a financial settlement or verdict for you. That’s because we work on a contingency fee basis. If we don’t win, you don’t owe us a penny.
People who have been injured in a truck accident in Philadelphia often want to know up front exactly how much their claim could be worth. The truth is each truck accident is unique. In some cases, your accident-related expenses could add up to a few thousand dollars. In others, your claim could be worth millions.
What’s the difference? Often, it comes down to the severity of your injuries and your truck accident. If you need several weeks or months to recover from your crash, your expenses may be significant. Such expenses often include medical treatment as well as replacement income for the time period when you cannot work.
If a truck driver clearly caused your accident, your attorney should demand that you are fully compensated for all your truck accident-related expenses. Otherwise, you could end up having to pay for your accident out of your own pocket.
In most cases, you have two years from the date of your truck accident to take legal action in Pennsylvania. This deadline is known as the statute of limitations. And if you wait longer than two years to file a truck accident lawsuit or take any other type of legal action, you could miss out on your opportunity to obtain the financial compensation you need and deserve.
But the two-year deadline isn’t the only reason why you should take legal action soon. The longer you wait to file a lawsuit, the harder it often becomes to find the facts you need to build a strong legal case. Such facts can include the data collected in the truck’s so-called black box, which includes the speed the truck was traveling at the time of the crash as well as when the truck driver last took a break before the accident. Other evidence may include eyewitness testimony and a detailed analysis of the truck accident report. All of these things take time. And the sooner our law firm can get started on your truck accident, the better.
