Here in Louisville and throughout Kentucky truck accident and injury cases are much different than a car accident case. Truck accident cases are legally quite complex and often involve multiple liable parties. The responsible parties such as the truck driver, the company they work for and the owner of the truck are usually backed by insurance companies with powerful legal teams. They will do everything possible to shift the blame for the accident or otherwise attempt to deny part or all of your rightful truck accident personal injury claim.
The experienced trial attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC (HLH) have the legal skill, resources and strategies to stand up to these parties and achieve multi-million dollar verdicts on behalf of our clients.
Truck accident and injury cases are much different than a car accident case due to the extensive federal and state laws which apply to the trucking industry and the documentation associated with operations and maintenance. Most trucks are insured for well over $1 million and their attorneys are working aggressively to document and protect their position.
HLH attorneys know from experience that truck accident cases require a focus on the documentation. We must identify, locate and preserve all documentation relating to the accident, the truck, the truck driver and how the vehicle has been maintained. Dash cams and other modern electronic logging devices contain detailed information about a driver’s time on the road, rest breaks, delays and the pressures they may have been under to deliver their cargo.
The black box of a truck is called the Electronic Control Module or ECM. This module collects additional information about the truck’s speed at the time of the accident, when the driver applied the brakes and other indicators regarding the driver’s typical driving habits other factors which demonstrate liability.
This is why it is important to work with the proven personal injury attorneys at HLH. If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident we invite you to review the strong recommendations of our clients and the legal industry and contact us or call (866) 583-9701 for a free consultation.
