The Truth About Trucking Accident Cases And Victims’ Rights
Recovering from a commercial trucking accident can be a long and winding road. At the Sutten Law Group, LLC, we want to help you heal. Whether you were involved in a rollover, jackknife or rear-end crash with a truck, we know how to build an impenetrable case. Attorney Sutten will work with you at your own pace and explain the process from start to finish.
The Stakes Are High In Trucking Accident Claims
When commercial trucks crash into cars, injuries are often catastrophic, if not fatal. If victims do survive, they may face a long road to emotional and physical recovery. The amount of property damage can also be quite high. Many commercial trucking companies are backed by $1 million in liability coverage. With the stakes so high, you should not expect the insurance company to hand over compensation without a fight. They may try and shift responsibility and say that you are at fault. That is why contacting our office in Albuquerque as soon as possible after a crash is of the utmost importance.
We Serve As Investigators To Determine Who Is At Fault
While the insurance companies launch their own investigations, we will simultaneously start preserving evidence to prove fault. There are various pieces of evidence that can help to prove fault. These include photographs, video footage, black box data, logbooks, witness statements, maintenance data, personnel records and more. We will also review the trucker’s qualifications to determine if they received the proper training and certifications to operate a commercial vehicle.
One or more parties may be at fault for the crash, including:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- Maintenance companies
- Shipping/receiving companies
- Parts manufacturers
We cannot always rely on the investigations conducted by insurance companies. We will bring all the facts to the table to paint a comprehensive picture to determine who should be held responsible.
