What to Expect from Our Land O’Lakes Truck Accident Law Firm

If you’ve been in a truck accident, you shouldn’t think twice about hiring a lawyer – you need someone on your side who will be available to support you and make sure that an insurance company doesn’t get away with paying you less than you deserve. When you hire our Land O’Lakes truck accident law firm, you can expect us to:

  • Fully investigate your crash. One of the first things that we’ll do when you hire us is to open an investigation into your crash to determine how the crash happened, who’s to blame for what happened, and against whom a claim should be filed. This process involves being at the scene of the accident ourselves, collaborating with experts, sending spoliation of evidence letters, reviewing the police report, talking to witnesses, and more.
  • Handle your claim. Filing an insurance claim, proving fault and damages, and reviewing a settlement can all be very complicated. You can count on our legal team to do everything that’s necessary along the way, including compiling your paperwork, talking to the insurance company, calculating your damages, and reviewing and negotiating your settlement amount. We know what’s on the line, and you can trust us to do a thorough and accurate job of managing your case
  • Keep you in the loop. Throughout the entire process, we will remain proactive, transparent, and engaged in your case. If you have questions, you can count on us to be accessible and available throughout. We want you to feel as though you have a friend in us.

Why You Need a Lawyer After a Truck Accident

Don’t make the mistake of not hiring an attorney if you’ve been in a truck accident. You need a lawyer because:

  • Your injuries are serious. If your injuries are serious, you are looking at high medical bills and long-term damages, potentially in the form of permanent disability, disfigurement, or/and scarring. You need someone who knows what’s on the line and will work hard to make sure you’re compensated.
  • Your economic and noneconomic damages are severe. If you’ve been injured, disability and high medical expenses aren’t the only damages you’ll incur; you may also be unable to work and sustain lost wages. What’s more, you may also be facing property damage expenses and a wide array of noneconomic damages, like pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
  • Liability is unclear. Liability in a truck accident can be complex. The first step is determining what happened. Potentially liable parties include a trucking company, truck driver, shipper or loader of cargo, the manufacturer of a vehicle or a vehicle party, or another third-party. Note that even when fault lies on the shoulders of one party, however, that may not be who’s liable (i.e. a trucking company may be liable for a truck driver’s actions).
  • You’re not being offered a fair settlement. Insurance companies notoriously low-ball claims and offer people less than they deserve with the aim of saving money in mind. If your claim has been low-balled and you haven’t been offered a fair settlement, we can help.

The Statute of Limitations in Truck Accident Claims

One of the most important things that you need to know is that you only have a limited amount of time to act. After a truck accident, you have four years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. If you breach the statute of limitations, your claim will be barred.
