Get a Lawyer if you are a Trucker involved in an Accident
If you are a trucker and the other driver is at fault, you may have multiple claims, including a worker's compensation claim and a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. With the reporting requirements and others matters involved in being a trucker, getting a lawyer to handle BOTH a potential injury claim and a claim against the other driver might not be immediately considered. It is important to obtain prompt legal representation if seriously injured as a trucker. Many truckers fear job loss, however, if the other driver is at fault, even with a worker's compensation claim, a lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you deserve and indirectly assist your employer's insurance company in recovering some of the money paid for your worker's compensation claim.
Don't take chances as a trucker...secure the services of a lawyer early on so you can get the legal advice and assistance needed.
If you are injured in a Trucking Accident, get a lawyer to represent your legal rights
While truckers have a tough job, mistakes do happen and if you are injured in a trucking accident, get a lawyer right away to represent your legal interests. Trucking Accidents are often complex and as a private person, it is difficult to match the resources of a trucking firm or their insurance companies. A lawsuit may be necessary in serious injury and death cases to obtain full and fair compensation. Consider consulting with an attorney before giving any statements to an insurance company.
