The moments after a crash can be just as, if not more dangerous, than the initial impact. A collision with a large vehicle can greatly obstruct the roadway, making bystanders and survivors less visible to other vehicles passing by. Blind spots on the road and variable weather conditions can add to existing hazards.
If you’re able to determine your own safety after the crash, stay calm and attempt to verify that everyone else involved is also OK. Do not move injured persons if they are unable to move themselves, as you may exacerbate their injuries. If possible, wait a safe distance from the scene of the accident for help to arrive. As mentioned earlier, the scene of the collision may be unsafe: There are many reported examples of crash survivors being struck by other passing vehicles while waiting for first responders.
A crash with a large truck gets more than just the drivers of each vehicle legally involved. Depending on what caused the crash, other parties quickly become relevant to the potential case:
At any rate, each of the parties involved in these scenarios will have backing from their own insurance companies, all of which find it in their best interest to pay out the smallest settlement amount possible. They will also have their own legal representation. With so many variables at play, the benefit of proper legal representation is obvious. The May Firm will act as your liaison with these companies and fight to get you a proper settlement amount. We’ll deal with other parties’ insurance companies directly and hold them accountable to pay out the compensation you’re due.
As a state with both a robust agricultural output and large metropolitan areas, California relies heavily on its roadways to ship goods throughout its counties and beyond. Large trucks and commercial shipping are an integral part of the economy, and we rely on the services provided by CDL certified drivers. Despite their higher level of certification however, accidents still occur.
The best advice our firm can give you is to always seek legal help if you find yourself involved in any type of automotive accident, and this is especially true if a truck is involved. Truck drivers are typically insured and protected by the companies they represent, and those companies’ best interest is to prove their employee was not at fault. Other parties can quickly become involved on behalf of the driver such as the manufacturer of the truck, or the company who is paying to have goods shipped.
We’ll use our extensive knowledge of California vehicle code and draw from our experience with past cases to ensure you receiver proper settlement. We know a crash can mean much more than property damage, so we factor every facet of your recovery into the settlement process. Our lawyers will fight to get you wage reimbursement for missed work, finances to cover medical bills and ongoing recovery, and reimbursement for pain and suffering, to name a few.
We work on a contingency fee, and partner with medical providers in the community that work on a lien basis to get you the medical help you need as soon as possible. This means that our fees and the medical services provided are all factored into your settlement payout, allowing you to give your full focus to your recovery.
The ramifications caused by an accident with a large truck can be severe. Get the peace of mind you need by putting The May Firm on your side, and let our family help your family by handling all the delicate logistics of your case. At The May Firm, our goal is to help you get the resources you need to get your life back to normal.
