Who Is Liable in a Trucking Accident?
In some cases there are multiple parties that may be held responsible after a truck accident including:
- The driver
- The employment company
- The parts manufacturer
- Mechanics or maintenance employees
- Other negligent drivers
With multiple insurance companies and attorneys involved, proving liability can be difficult. As such, it is imperative to work with a highly knowledgeable lawyer who can ensure you receive justice after an accident. Mr. Harris can review the unique details surrounding your case to establish liability, interviewing key witnesses and reviewing written and visual evidence.
Why Do I Need a Truck Accident Attorney?
There are many advantages of working with an attorney who is familiar with the nuances of motor vehicle laws, including:
- Protection from Insurance Companies
- Insurance providers of at-fault parties can use their resources to minimize your injuries and reduce their expenses. As Utah allows for "comparative negligence," insurance companies may even attempt to place some of the liability on you, which can significantly impact your claim. Lynn Harris has successfully protected clients from these tactics by making a strategic statement on their behalf and handling insurance negotiations.
- Compiling Documentation
- To build your case, it is highly important to collect proper documentation following an accident, including accident reports, insurance information, as well as medical records and bills. Mr. Harris can compile this information in an efficient and organized manner, so as to ensure he has a comprehensive understanding of the events that took place.
- Knowledge of Unique Circumstances
- Truck accidents are different from other automobile accidents, as both drivers and their employers are held to highly regulated standards. They must keep records of driving logs and maintenance requirements. Mr Harris has in-depth knowledge of these rules and regulations, including how to collect, interpret, and present records in court.
