Experienced Personal Injury Attorney Representing Victims of Truck Accidents in Tuscumbia
Accidents involving trucks and 18-wheelers can be extremely dangerous and deadly due to their massive size and the fact that they are likely traveling at high speeds. Given that many of Alabama’s roads are rural, it is especially frightening to get into a truck accident when help may be very far away. We have represented countless clients who have been injured by a reckless truck driver and will help you get the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and get back to your life.
Going Up Against Big Insurance
Commercial driving companies typically invest in high-quality insurance due to the nature of their business. This means they have access to many legal resources aimed at denying culpability for accidents their drivers may cause. Corporate insurance adjusters will attempt to trick you into admitting fault so that they will not be held liable for damages.
Alabama is a “shared fault” insurance state, meaning you may only be able to collect a percentage of the total compensation if it is determined your actions contributed to the accident. This is why it is so critical you avoid giving any statements to the other driver’s insurance company and you need to be careful what you divulge to your insurance provider as well. By no means are we advocating lying; just exercising caution and avoiding the natural human response of wanting to alleviate the other party’s guilt by apologizing or taking blame when it was not your fault.
How We Can Help
We’ve spent over 35 years handling personal injury cases pertaining to truck accidents and are well-versed in the language insurance agencies use. Simply retaining legal counsel is sometimes enough for an insurance company to accept a claim and offer a settlement. If what they offer is insufficient, we will negotiate on your behalf and even take them to court if we must, in order to collect the compensation you truly deserve.
