How can I Protect My Entitlement to Compensation after a Truck Accident?

Being involved in an accident is already a distressing experience, but dealing with insurance companies afterwards can be just as overwhelming. These large corporations will often go to great lengths to avoid paying out claims. That is why it is crucial to take the necessary steps to safeguard your entitlement to compensation following an accident.

Here are some tips on what to do if you’ve been in a truck accident:

Try not to Move the Vehicles

So that the police can make an accurate report of the accident, try not to move the vehicles involved. Some jurisdictions may require that the vehicles be moved from the roadway, particularly following minor traffic accidents.

Call 911

Report the accident, request police assistance, and ask for an ambulance for any injured persons.

Police Accident Report

See that the police make an official report of the accident. Get the name, badge number and telephone number of the officer making the police report. Ask the officer when and where you can get a copy of the accident report.

Trade Information with Others

Exchange the following information at the accident scene:

  • Name, address, phone number and driver’s license number of all drivers.
  • Year, make, model and license plate number of all vehicles.
  • Name, address and phone number of the vehicle’s owner if different.
  • Name, address and phone number of the drivers’ insurance agents.
Do not Discuss who’s at Fault

When you’ve been in an accident, you’re going to be shaken up, at least emotionally, even if it was a minor collision. Don’t discuss who is at fault with the other drivers. Admission of fault at the scene of an accident could jeopardize your legal position in terms of fault and affect your rights under your insurance coverage.

Get Basic Information from Witnesses

If there are witnesses find out what they saw, and get their names, addresses and phone numbers.

Tow Truck / Vehicle Repairs

If your vehicle needs to be towed, get the name, address and telephone number of the towing company. Find out where your vehicle will be stored. Before any repairs are done to your vehicle, make sure that the adjusters for the insurance company are given an opportunity to appraise your vehicle’s damage first.

Vehicle Damage Estimates

Try and get damage estimates from two respected body shops reflecting how much it will cost to completely fix your vehicle.

Insurance Companies

As soon as you practically can, call your insurance agent and report the accident. If you are contacted by an insurance company that is not your insurer, don’t be pressured into giving any information you feel uncomfortable giving. Most importantly, before signing any documents, consult with a lawyer from The Knoll Law Firm. We will be happy to assist you.

See a Doctor

If you think you’ve been injured, or if you develop any unusual physical symptoms, see a doctor immediately.

What can I Seek Compensation for after a Truck Accident?

When it comes to truck accidents, the potential for serious injury and damage is even higher than with typical car accidents. If you have been involved in a commercial truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for a wide range of damages.

Here are some of the types of compensation that you can seek after a truck accident:

Medical Expenses

This includes the cost of past, present and future hospital stays, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and any other medical treatment related to the accident. Given the severity of injuries in many truck accidents, medical expenses can quickly add up to significant amounts.

Lost Wages

If the injuries sustained in the accident prevent you from working, you may be able to recover lost wages, including future lost earnings if your injuries result in long-term disability. This can help ensure that you and your family are financially stable despite the aftermath of the accident.

Property Damage

In a truck accident, the damage to your vehicle or other property can be significant. You can seek compensation for the cost of repairs or replacement, as well as rental car expenses.

Pain and Suffering

This type of compensation is designed to compensate you for the physical and emotional pain and suffering caused by the accident. Given the severity of truck accidents, pain and suffering can be significant and long-lasting.

Loss of Enjoyment of Life

If the injuries from the accident prevent you from participating in activities that you once enjoyed, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of enjoyment of life.

Wrongful Death

If the accident resulted in the death of a loved one, you may be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, loss of income, and other wrongful death damages. This can help provide some financial stability for you and your family during this difficult time.

Who is Liable for a Truck Accident?

If you have been involved in a commercial truck accident, you may be wondering who is responsible for the damages and injuries sustained. Determining liability in these types of accidents can be complex and often requires the help of an experienced truck accident attorney. At the Knoll Law Firm, we have years of experience helping clients navigate the legal process and hold the responsible parties accountable.

In commercial truck accidents, liability can fall on a number of parties, including:

The Truck Driver

If the accident was caused by the driver’s negligence, such as speeding, driving under the influence, or driving while distracted, they can be held liable.

The Trucking Company

If the company failed to properly maintain the truck or neglected to train their driver properly, they can be held liable.

The Manufacturer

If the accident was caused by a defect in the truck’s design or manufacturing, the manufacturer may be held liable.

The Cargo Company

If the accident was caused by improperly loaded or secured cargo, the company responsible for loading and securing the cargo may be held liable.

Determining liability in a commercial truck accident can be a complex process, and multiple parties may share responsibility for the accident. At the Knoll Law Firm, we conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the accident to identify all parties who may be liable. We work closely with accident reconstruction specialists and other experts to build a strong case on your behalf.

What are the Most Common Injuries from Truck Accidents?

When it comes to commercial truck accidents, the injuries sustained can be even more severe due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved.

Some of the most common injuries from truck accidents include:

Cuts, Sprains, and Bruises

The impact of a truck accident can cause cuts, sprains, and bruises throughout the body. These injuries can range from minor to severe and may require medical attention depending on the severity.

Head and Brain Injuries

These can include concussions, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and skull fractures. Symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, memory loss, and difficulty concentrating.

Neck and Spine Injuries

Whiplash is a common injury in rear-end truck accidents, which can cause neck pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. Spinal cord injuries can also occur, resulting in partial or complete paralysis.

Back Injuries

Truck accidents can cause back strains and sprains, herniated discs, and fractures. These injuries can lead to chronic pain and limited mobility.

Broken Bones

Fractures to the arms, legs, hips, and ribs are common in truck accidents. These injuries can range from minor to severe and may require surgery to repair.

Internal Injuries

Due to the force of impact, truck accidents can cause damage to internal organs, such as the liver, spleen, and kidneys. Internal bleeding may also occur, which can be life-threatening if not treated promptly.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Muscles, ligaments, and tendons can be strained or sprained in a truck accident, causing pain, swelling, and limited mobility. These injuries can take weeks or months to heal and may require physical therapy.

Psychological Injuries

Truck accidents can be traumatic and can cause emotional distress, such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

It’s important to seek medical attention after a truck accident, even if you don’t feel any immediate pain or symptoms. Some injuries may not be apparent right away and can worsen over time without proper treatment.

Dealing with injuries after a truck accident can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it alone. An experienced truck accident attorney can help you understand your legal options and make sure you receive the proper medical treatment and compensation for your injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions

The legal process can be very confusing and we know that you may have many questions and concerns regarding your case. To help relieve initial uncertainty about your legal rights, The Knoll Law Firm has compiled a list of frequently asked questions by our clients after an accident:

What are my rights after an accident?

After an accident due to another’s negligence you have the right to be compensated for property damage, loss of use, physical pain, mental anguish, physical disfigurement, physical impairment, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, loss of consortium, and loss of services. You have the right to access a Court to resolve your dispute.

Will I be compensated for my pain and suffering?

Yes, pain and suffering is a type of damage that can be compensated in a personal injury case. The amount of compensation is directly related to severity of the injury. A claimant can recover damages for past and future pain and suffering.

How long can a claim last?

If a claim is resolved prior to litigation, then it generally will settle 3 to 6 months after the claimant finishes medical treatment. Cases that go into litigation can take several years based on the case, but average is generally about two years.

If I do not have health insurance or a premium care physician, how and where can I get treatment for my injuries?

It is against the law for a Hospital’s Emergency Room to refuse to give emergency treatment. Medical treatment may also be obtained by way of a Letter of Protection (LOP) from an attorney. A letter of protection tells a provider that you have a claim pending and the attorney will pay the medical bills out of the proceeds of that claim. Not all health care providers accept letters of protection.

How much money will an attorney cost me?

Most personal injury and death cases are taken on a contingency fees basis. This means the client pays the attorney nothing out of his/her pocket up front and the attorney receives a percentage of the proceeds collected. If nothing is collected the attorney is paid nothing.

What if I cannot work due to my injuries?

After an accident due to another’s negligence you have the right to be compensated for lost income, even if you are paid by your employer under paid vacation or personal time off.

How do I determine if I have a case?

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident then you may have the right to compensation for your loss. Every case is different and requires legal analysis by a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorney. Please call The Knoll Law Firm today at 1-800-504-3476 or fill out our free case review form and one of our attorneys will contact you to discuss your legal rights.

How long do I have to file a claim after an accident?

In Louisiana an accident victim generally has one year in which to file a lawsuit for his/her injuries and losses. After one year from the date of the accident, and a lawsuit is not filed, the victim forever loses his/her right to bring a claim.
