After A Trucking Accident
Collisions involving large commercial trucks are some of the most devastating – and the most difficult to pursue. The size, speed and weight of these vehicles often result in catastrophic injuries and even death for motorists who are unfortunate to end up in their path. After a crash, the substantial resources of trucking companies and their insurers also put motorists at a legal disadvantage.
It is critical to do everything possible to level the playing field after a vehicle accident with a large truck. At Platt Hopwood Russell & Cole in Melbourne, we help those affected by truck collisions – including families that have lost loved ones in such accidents – protect their rights and hold trucking companies accountable.
Serious accidents require serious attorneys. Our lawyers have secured favorable results in serious accident cases throughout Brevard County and Florida’s surrounding communities, including multiple six- and seven-figure awards. Contact us to learn how we can put our experience to work for you.
How Quickly Do I Have to Act After a Trucking Accident?
As quickly as possible. Trucking companies and their insurers have lots of experience responding to accidents. Often, they will have an accident reconstructionist, attorneys, adjusters and other experts on the scene very soon after the accident. While you are at the hospital awaiting treatment, they are already building their case and looking for reasons to deny you adequate compensation.
To protect your rights, it is essential that you get your own legal team on the case as soon as you can. Your lawyers can mount their own investigation to secure any evidence that may help your case and ensure that the trucking company acts appropriately. Waiting to contact an attorney can result in a serious disadvantage.
