Do I Have a Case?
If you were hurt in a big truck accident that wasn’t your fault, you probably have a case for compensation for your injuries and losses. Here are a few factors your Lowry & Associates lawyer will look over during your case review to determine if you have a case and how much your case may be worth.
Every state has a statute of limitations, which is the legal time limit you have to file your truck accident lawsuit. In Maine, this time limit is six years from the date of the accident. If you fail to file before this deadline, then you could lose your right to compensation.
Depending on the details of your case, there may be other deadlines you need to meet to qualify for the maximum compensation. We recommend seeking a free case review with one of our experienced Bangor, ME, truck accident lawyers so they can help you seek your best legal options and ensure you are aware of any upcoming deadlines.
Truck accidents often become complicated because many parties might be involved. The truck driver, the trucking company, the cargo loading company, the maintenance crew, and even the manufacturer of defective parts can all be partially responsible. We need to prove someone else acted carelessly, their actions led to the accident, and you got hurt as a direct result. This is called negligence. Your Lowry & Associates lawyer will know exactly what evidence you need to build your best case to hold the right people accountable for their negligence.
Were You Hurt in an 18-Wheeler Crash?
If you were hurt by a careless truck driver, you have rights and you deserve compensation. Lowry & Associates can fight for you.
What Compensation Can I Get?
You may be entitled to compensation for a variety of injuries and losses. These may include:
- Your medical bills
- Your lost wages
- Pain and suffering, such as PTSD, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of comfort and consortium, and other “invisible” injuries
Maine has a modified comparative fault law, which means your award can be reduced by the amount of responsibility you hold in causing the accident. If you are found 50% or more responsible, you lose your right to any compensation. Your Lowry & Associates lawyer will know what evidence your case needs to seek the maximum compensation and prove the facts of who was responsible for your injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions
You are allowed under the law to represent yourself in your case. However, the defendant will have lawyers on their side, and a qualified and experienced Maine truck accident attorney in your corner gives you the best chance to fight for compensation.
At Lowry & Associates, your attorney won’t cost you anything upfront. You don’t have to pay for the free case review, and you won’t owe any fees at all unless we get compensation for you.
Negligence just means, “who is at fault?” To prove who is responsible, your Lowry & Associates lawyer will have to prove they acted carelessly, their actions led to the accident, and your injury is the direct result of the accident.
Contributory negligence is another way to say “comparative fault.” It means that, for example, if you are 20% responsible for the accident, your settlement will be reduced by 20%. In Maine, if you are 50% or more responsible, you won’t receive any compensation.
A statute of limitations is a time limit you have to file your case. In Maine, you must file a lawsuit within six years of the accident for personal injury. In cases of wrongful death, you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the deceased person’s death. Other deadlines may apply to your Maine truck accident case, so get in touch with one of our lawyers today to make sure your case is on the right track.
