Of all types of vehicle accidents, there is no doubt that truck accidents are the most terrifying. Weighing up to 80,000 lbs., when a large truck hits another vehicle, the damage can be catastrophic. At The Law Offices of Alan Hildreth King & Associates, our Revere truck accident lawyer understands how painful the aftermath of a truck accident can be, and is committed to working hard for you.
Your Right to Seek Damages after a Truck Accident
Truck accidents are almost always preventable, and when they occur, it is usually because of negligence. Negligence is the failure to act with a reasonable degree of care, and might include driving drowsy, speeding, driving aggressively, and more. When the negligence of another party was the cause of the truck accident–and, subsequently, your damages–you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. Our Revere truck accident lawyer can help you to recover compensation for:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Future economic expenses;
- Pain and suffering; and
- All other noneconomic damages.
It is important that you bring forth your truck accident claim within three years of the date of the accident. If not, Massachusetts’ law prevents you from recovering damages.
Who Is Liable for My Damages?
One of the the most confusing parts of a truck accident claims, and one of the reasons why working with a Revere truck accident lawyer is so important, is that there could potentially be multiple parties to blame for the crash. For example, the negligence of any of the following parties could have caused the crash:
- The truck driver;
- The trucking company;
- Another third party driver;
- A shipper of cargo;
- The loader of cargo; or
- A truck part manufacturer.
Keep in mind that some of the blame for the truck accident could also be pinned on you. If this is the case, Massachusetts’ laws of comparative negligence state that your recoverable damages amount will be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault.
What Should I Do Now?
Trucking accidents typically leave victims with severe injuries, including crush injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and amputation injuries. If you have suffered serious injuries, you may be unable to investigate your crash and begin the legal process on your own. As such, we urge you to contact us immediately. We can travel to your location to discuss your case in more detail. We will also open an investigation on your behalf, and hire the experts necessary to build your case. We handle all aspects of your truck accident claim for you so that you can focus on what’s important: your recovery.
If you have lost a loved one in a truck accident, we can also represent you and your family in the filing of a wrongful death claim.
