A Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help You Recover Compensation

After a truck accident, you might have a lot of expenses. Medical bills, time off work, and other costs can add up quickly, not to mention the emotional toll serious injuries can take.

Our goal is to ensure that you have the money you need not only to cover your current expenses, but also to plan for possible future expenses like missed work, rehabilitation, and more.

Understanding What Makes Truck Accidents Unique

Truck accidents are different because of the size and weight of trucks and the damage they can cause. They also involve specific rules for truck drivers and trucking companies, such as sizing and weight regulations, hours of service rules, and maintenance and safety standards.

Types of Truck Accidents

There are many kinds of truck accidents, like rollovers, jackknifes, or crashes caused by lost loads. We handle all types of truck accident cases.

How Collisions With Big Trucks Happen in Maine

Truck accidents can happen for many reasons, like distracted driving, poor truck maintenance, or bad road conditions. A truck accident attorney in Maine will look into why your accident happened as the cause can be an important factor in your claim.

Potential Liability for Your Injuries

In truck accidents, different people might be responsible, like the truck driver, the trucking company, or even the company that loaded the truck. We figure out who is liable, even if there are multiple parties, and work to hold them accountable.

We Handle the Insurance Company While You Recover

Dealing with insurance companies is an aspect of the legal process that many people dread. Our legal team takes on this responsibility so you can concentrate on your recovery. We handle negotiations, paperwork, and communication with the insurance companies to ensure your rights are protected.

Steps To Take After a Collision With a Big Truck

If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, taking the following steps before calling us can help ensure your well-being and the success of any potential legal action:

  1. Seek Medical Help Right Away: Your health is the top priority, so make sure to see a doctor as soon as possible, even if your injuries seem minor. Records of any injuries will benefit your truck accident claim too!
  2. Report the Incident to the Police: Contact law enforcement to ensure they create an official accident report. This report will serve as evidence later.
  3. Gather Information from Witnesses: Collect contact details from any witnesses who can provide statements about the accident.
  4. Document the Scene: Take photographs of the accident scene, capturing the damage to vehicles, road conditions, and any relevant signage. This documentation can be essential for future reference.

Adhering to these steps can significantly strengthen your case and improve the likelihood of a successful legal resolution.
