Our Louisville Truck Crash Lawyers Protect Victims
When a commercial truck collides with another vehicle, the damage it causes can run into millions of dollars. Big trucking insurance carriers will do all they can to avoid paying the victims of these horrific accidents just compensation. If insurance companies are reluctant to pay claims for car accidents, you can guess how they react when an accident of this magnitude occurs.
Isaacs & Isaacs employs its own skilled accident scene investigators. We will be at your side immediately to ward off the insurance people and gather evidence. If anyone besides police and medical personnel ask you about the cause of the accident, your injuries, what you were doing, or any other questions, even if they act friendly and concerned, you can tell them they should speak to your attorney.
We will take pictures of the accident scene, the truck and the other vehicles involved. We will talk to witnesses and gather statements and contact information. Because of our years of experience investigating trucking accidents, we will see what is there to be seen.
How Do Trucking Accident Lawyers Prove Negligence?
More than one party is usually at fault and therefore liable in a commercial truck accident. Maybe the driver was hauling an improperly secured load, working more hours than the law allows or driving while distracted. If there was a mechanical failure, it could be the parts manufacturer, the inspection crew, the trucking company, the driver or any one of a number of factors where somebody cut corners or didn’t abide by safety regulations.
In order to prove negligence, we may need to file a lawsuit to gain access to trucking company records. Nobody is going to volunteer information that could mean they are accountable for millions of dollars in damages. Sometimes insurance coverage is inadequate. In these cases, the liable parties must pay.
Once a trucker or trucking company knows we are involved, they may offer a fair settlement amount, or they may wait until we build a strong case. A lawsuit allows us to subpoena employees, demand production of company records and documents and examine other tangible evidence. The trucker or trucking company has no obligation to turn over records, or let us examine the truck until a lawsuit has been filed.
Each accident is different, but often the cause of these accidents is something we’ve seen before. Our experienced truck accident lawyers will investigate the facts to find out what happened and who is liable. Usually after the liable parties understand that we will take it to court and win, they will offer a fair amount to settle before trial.
