Why You Need an Attorney in an 18-Wheeler Accident Case

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2017, there were over 4,600 fatal accidents involving 18-wheelers. Collisions involving 18-wheelers clearly have consequences that are far more devastating than normal "fender-benders." If you or someone you know is seriously injured by an 18-wheeler, there are many reasons you should hire an attorney rather than try to handle your claim by yourself:

Even the Odds

Trucking companies have teams of lawyers working to protect them and limit the amount of compensation they have to provide to the innocent people they injure. You should also have a team on your side that fights to make sure you and your family get everything you deserve.

The Rules are Different

The trucking industry is governed by both state and federal regulations. These regulations deal with everything from vehicle maintenance to driver training and qualifications. Having an attorney on your side that knows the ins and outs of trucking law is crucial to making sure you are fairly compensated for your injuries.

18-Wheeler Cases are Complex

In trucking accident cases, investigating the causes of a collision are often more complex than simply figuring out who ran a red light. There are a number of issues that can cause a collision: drivers that are poorly trained or fatigued, or even the failure to maintain the vehicle properly. You need to hire an attorney that not only has the resources to help you conduct an investigation into the accident, but knows the best people to conduct the investigation.

The attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner have decades of experience, and have handled thousands of cases against the trucking industry.
