Why Do You Need a Lawyer After a Truck Accident?

by Staff Blogger | February 22nd, 2018

If you’re involved in any type of auto accident where injuries or property damage over $1,000 in value occur, you’re required by Virginia state law to contact the police. You also may face the dilemma of determining who was at fault for the crash, but neither you nor the other driver are willing to budge on your viewpoints of what happened.

In other words, car accidents are complicated. Truck accidents can be even more complicated, as they involve all of the factors above in addition to three parties who may be responsible for trucks: truck drivers, truck owners, and truck companies.

At Skolrood Law Firm, we’ve helped many truck accident victims pursue maximum compensation. Having an experienced attorney on your side after a truck accident can be beneficial for the following reasons:

  • Truck accidents often involve multiple parties. Because there are so many parties involved in truck accidents, trying to get compensation alone can be an uphill battle for many victims. Having a law firm on your side can help level the playing field when you’re going up against truck drivers, owners, and companies, as well as their insurance companies.
  • Getting full compensation for truck accident injuries can be difficult. Big trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, which increases the likelihood that victims will suffer serious injuries during a truck accident. If you were seriously hurt in a truck accident, you may need expensive medical care, and an attorney is ready to fight for the full amount of compensation you deserve.
