Drake Law Firm handles a range of truck accident cases, including those involving:
Truck accident lawsuits require victims to prove fault and liability. Because this can be a challenging task, determining fault in your trucking accident will require investigations into police reports, witness statements, accident reconstruction, and potential regulatory violations.
Drake Law Firm offers free case evaluations to help victims better understand who may be responsible for their truck accident and resulting damages. Examples of defendants commonly named in trucking cases include:
Trucking companies are heavily insured, and their insurance carriers are in the business of protecting their bottom line, not helping victims. After your accident, insurance companies may attempt to contact you or may even make a settlement offer. Remember:
Insurance companies want to speak with you in hopes you may admit fault or say something that can be used against you. Their early offers are often an attempt to get you to settle for less than you deserve.
The value of your truck accident case will depend on many factors. When you complete your medical treatment or have recovered as much as you are able, your attorney will work to reach a settlement or litigate at trial, if no fair offer is made, to obtain a monetary recovery of your damages.
To secure the full amount of compensation you need, your attorney will carefully evaluate your damages and future needs, and advocate for an adequate settlement or verdict. Examples of recoverable damages include:
Fresno and the surrounding San Joaquin Valley are major transit corridors that see heavy truck and commercial vehicle traffic. While these trucks are vital to commerce, they pose many risks to local motorists – especially those who suffer harm, losses, or the death of a loved one in preventable crashes.
