There are several reasons to hire an experienced truck accident attorney if you have been injured in an accident with a commercial vehicle. Truck accident related personal injury cases are quite legally complex. The experienced Louisville truck injury attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC (HLH) employ unique legal strategies to ensure our clients achieve the best possible outcome in their cases.
Truck accident personal injury cases almost always include multiple parties who are responsible for at least part of what caused the accident itself. Car accidents usually involve two parties: the driver of the car responsible for the accident and the injured party. Truck accidents have multiple sources of recovery associated with your personal injury claim. The driver is the first and most obvious responsible party. In addition the owner of the truck itself may also carry responsibility for the accident which resulted in your injuries.
The company who hired the truck may be different from the party which owns the truck and represents another potential source of recovery. In addition, external fleet maintenance organizations as well as those who load the truck or secure the load itself may share responsibility for your injuries.
In some cases our experienced injury attorneys are able to negotiate an appropriate settlement directly with insurance representatives. In most truck accident cases it is necessary to pursue mediation or arbitration in order to achieve a full and fair settlement. Our proven trial attorneys prepare every case from the outset as if it will be tried before a judge or jury. This is often necessary to ensure our clients are properly compensated for their injuries and the impact the accident has had upon their life.
There are several reasons to hire an experienced truck accident attorney but the most important reason is the result achieved.
