You are driving along I-395 in Miami when, out of nowhere, a huge 18-wheeler side swipes your vehicle causing you to veer off the road and crash into a tree. Your vehicle is totaled and you suffer serious, debilitating injuries including multiple broken bones, a lacerated spleen, and a spinal cord injury. In these types of situations, you need an experienced Miami truck accident lawyer.
Trucking Companies Employ Teams of Adjusters and Defense Lawyers
Some people think that if an accident occurs involving a tractor trailer, they can handle filing a claim themselves with the company and do not need to retain a truck accident injury attorney. This is a big mistake. Many trucking companies have teams and departments focused on reducing the company’s liability exposure and mitigating the value of any claims made against the company. In fact, if a major truck accident occurs, do not be surprised if the truck company sends out investigators and claims adjusters to examine the scene shortly after the incident occurs. This is because they want to examine the available evidence before your lawyer gets a chance to.
