The Law Offices of Anna R. Yum view truck accidents as trial cases, because we should. Here are four reasons why you need an aggressive truck accident attorney if you are involved in a San Diego auto/truck collision.
- Truck companies and their insurance carriers are scared of liability. They know how much damage their vehicles can do and how expensive liability compensation can be. For those reasons, they treat every truck accident as an adversary proceeding. Truck insurance carriers are going to consider you the opposition.
- Truck accidents are more likely to cause injury and certainly do more damage than auto accidents. You need an advocate to preserve your rights to compensation in what may be a very expensive experience. You need a dedicated advocate with both the trucking firm and with your insurance carrier, especially if there are medical bills involved.
- Your attorney needs to understand the investigation requirements for a truck accident. Issues such as vehicle separation, weather conditions, and road width may play a different role than with auto accidents in deciding whether or not a truck is the responsible vehicle in an accident.
- A good truck collision lawyer will consider the opposition a corporate insurance company, which is what truck insurance carriers are, and collect all of the evidence necessary to meet the burden of proof standard regardless of the police report. Truck accident insurance cases don't often settle quietly.
