Truck Accident Negligence

Many accidents are caused by negligence and when that occurs behind the wheel of a tractor trailer, the consequences could be fatal. Even well-trained and experienced truck drivers are susceptible to making an ill-advised decision that could lead to a truck accident. When any type of crash happens, it is important to find a truck accident lawyer who is going to get you what you deserve.

The first thing to know after being involved in a truck accident is that filing a lawsuit is a key step in protecting you and your family. Because of the sheer size of 18-wheelers and commercial trucks, the personal injuries could be very severe. But all injuries should be considered serious enough to file a lawsuit. Victims of a truck accident should also be aware that a trucking company can be held accountable. There are many forms of negligence and it takes a qualified truck accident attorney to handle all those details. The Law Offices of William H. Harding is ready to take on your truck accident case and get you the highest amount of compensation possible.

    Truck Accident Injuries 

    The severity of personal injuries that result from a truck accident demand that victims be adequately compensated. These injuries are typically more severe than ones sustained in a car accident. There are instances when those injuries are permanent and completely change an individual’s quality of life. Here is a look at some of the more serious and common truck accident complications:

    • Multiple surgeries
    • Extensive hospitalization
    • Permanent disability
    • Time out of work
    • Continued physical therapy
    • Paralysis

    Getting compensated for these injuries is a step-by-step process and does not happen instantaneously. It can be a lengthy process, but one that can be accelerated with the help of a truck accident attorney. Medical bills can quickly pile up, especially when a victim is unable to work and collect weekly wages. The accident can also impact future earning potential. A personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of William H. Harding will help see you through this process, which concludes when a settlement is reached or a verdict is rendered by a court.

    Proving your case in a truck accident lawsuit

    Enlisting the Law Offices of William H. Harding to handle your truck accident lawsuit will begin a very detailed process. Our attorneys will conduct a complete investigation into the accident to prove truck driver negligence. Throughout the process, your lawyer will examine and review the police report while also conducting interviews with all the witnesses. We will also go out and do an actual investigation at the scene of the accident. That will help in the process of determining whether all traffic laws were followed by the truck driver and examine their credentials.

    Victims should also know that federal and state trucking regulations must be followed. However, this is often difficult to decipher without the assistance of a truck accident attorney. If any of those regulations were not followed, that could be a tremendous advantage in your lawsuit. Truck drivers are required to adhere to higher standards when compared to typical motorists who operate automobiles. And trucking companies have been known to falsify their records in an effort to keep their drivers from appearing to be guilty. Driver logs that have been forged can be spotted by an attorney at the Law Offices of William H. Harding. Here is a look at some of the parties who could be liable for damages and injuries sustained in a truck accident:

    • Trucking Companies
    • Parts Manufacturers
    • Truck Drivers
    • Third Parties
    • Road Service Crews

    Once the investigation phase concludes, your lawyer will file a claim on your behalf. This claim will include a compensation amount based on the findings in the investigation process. The claim will also make a statement regarding who is liable for the injuries and damages sustained. That leads into the negotiation phase as most insurance companies and trucking companies will attempt to settle for a specified amount before having to go to court. There is often a lot of back and forth as companies will try to pay out as little as possible to victims. Insurance companies will act as though they are concerned with your best interest, although that is simply not the case.

    We have lawyers who know exactly how to handle those negotiations and having experience with a myriad of trucking and insurance companies, we are fully aware of which tactics they typically try to employ. In the event that a settlement cannot be reached, your claim will go into litigation. This is where one of our lawyers will represent you in a court. Handling that process correctly could make a difference in your overall compensation. Our attorneys are ready to get you the most for your truck accident injuries when your fate is decided by a judge or jury.

    Litigation: This step only occurs if your case is formally taken to court. Both your attorney and the insurance company will present their cases, and after all of the evidence is presented, the judge or jury will be responsible for determining the verdict. The verdict will determine which party is at fault and the amount of compensation that is owed.

    Bottom line, no one compares to Attorney William H. Harding Posting reviews good, bad, or indifferent is honestly NOT my thing however, I cannot say enough about Atty Hardings superb professionalism and the excellent support of his entire staff. Couldnt pass up an opportunity to share my experience.Never imagined my family would need criminal defense help until late 2021 but as the saying goes, Never say never. Fairly new to Charlotte with no idea about who to turn to when in dire need of legal counsel. Admittedly, I searched the Internet and initially contacted another law firm. In hindsight, it was a blessing in disguise that the law firm I originally contacted failed to return my calls. After a dear friend referred me to Atty Harding and reassured me that Harding was top notch, I took a leap of faith and made the call. Not only did Atty Harding commit to an immediate, initial consult, he accommodated my family AFTER normal business hrs although the timeframe conflicted with a personal engagement that he previously committed to. That alone proved he has a huge heart. My family was gravely concerned about any unknownpending charges, and were still amazed with the manner that Atty Harding demonstrated genuine concern. He spent almost two hours with my family. Following a brief intro, he got right down to business by clearly explaining how he works with his clients and the importance of transparency. With pen and pad inhand, he elicited key details and took copious notes. By the time we left the Law Offices of William H. Harding, there was no doubt in our minds that Atty Harding was right for us and we needed to secure his representation.That said, I implore you to hire Atty Harding to advocate for you. Again, no one compares
