Were you severely injured in a commercial crash and have questions about what to expect after a truck accident? Call our Naperville lawyers.
1) Choosing the Best Truck Accident Lawyer
Yesterday, one of our attorneys was speaking to somebody who had called and said he’d been involved in a truck accident in Naperville, Illinois. When he asked how to go about finding the right attorney, our attorney told him a couple things. First, you want to find somebody that is an experienced truck accident attorney with a proven track record of handling truck accident claims. You also want to find somebody who is going to be your attorney from day one to the very end of your case. A lot of firms will shuffle people’s cases from attorney to attorney, or they will farm your case out.
Here at Chute, O’Malley, Knobloch & Turcy, we handle your case from the very beginning to the very end. If you have a truck accident case, please give us a call.
2) Mistakes After a Truck Accident
We spoke to somebody yesterday who told us that he had been involved in a truck accident, and he had waited six months before he had hired a lawyer. That is almost a fatal mistake that a person can make— not hiring a lawyer right away. There’s important evidence that must be preserved in a truck accident case, such as obtaining the black box from the truck that shows the accelerations and decelerations of the truck. That evidence must be preserved right away. Without hiring a lawyer, that evidence will be lost forever.
If you think we can help, please give us a call.
3) Truck Accident vs Car Accident Cases
There are some very important differences between truck accident cases and auto accident cases. The biggest difference is there could be multiple reasons why you were involved in a truck accident case. For instance, it could be driver error. It could be that the trailer was loaded improperly. It could be that the trailer was hitched to the truck improperly. Depending on what caused the semi-truck to lose control will determine who could potentially be at fault for your injury.
