Truck Accident Injuries
Commercial trucks like semis and 18-wheelers cause devastating injuries when they crash into other vehicles on the road. Many of our clients are recovering from:
- Nerve injuries
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal injuries
Many injuries require extensive rehab and time in the hospital. It isn’t unusual for someone involved in a truck accident to miss months of work as they try to regain their lost functioning.
These injuries are expensive. In addition to the cost of medical care, lost income adds stress to a family’s budget. Fortunately, we can help.
We Fight for Compensation after a Truck Accident
Sabbeth Law will swing into action and seek compensation for your injuries and related losses. For example, we can seek money damages for:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs
- Prescription drugs
- Lost income
- Lost benefits
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
How much you receive will depend on many factors, including the seriousness of your injuries and pain. Someone with a broken arm who misses a month of work usually receives less than someone with catastrophic injuries like amputation or brain damage.
Our Claremont truck accident lawyers will carefully sift through the evidence to determine the value of your claim. No trucking company or its insurer wants to pay fair compensation. But our attention to detail allows us to negotiate aggressively on behalf of clients.
Do You Need a Claremont Truck Accident Lawyer?
Yes. Truck accidents are usually more complicated than car crashes. For example, your injuries are usually more painful, which makes bringing a claim on your own difficult. Most people need to focus full-time on rehabilitation. Let us handle the legal side for you.
With truck accidents, there are multiple potential defendants. Some of the people we might sue include:
- Truck driver—if the driver was negligent or reckless, he is responsible for the crash.
- Employer—the truck driver’s employer is often automatically liable for accidents caused by an employee.
- Truck owner—the truck owner might have let the big rig fall into disrepair.
- Loading company—an unbalanced or unsteady load can contribute to rollover and jackknife accidents, making the loading company liable.
- Mechanics—a mechanic who does sloppy work is responsible if the truck fails to work properly.
- Truck manufacturers—a defective truck off the assembly line is dangerous to drive and can get into wrecks.
Untangling the facts is difficult. But we can identify all the parties at fault for your crash and sue them.
Comparative Fault & Truck Accidents
One factor which can reduce your compensation is your degree of fault. For example, you might have pulled into a truck’s blind spot without using your horn to signal your presence. The trucker then makes an illegal lane change and hits you. You bear some responsibility for this accident because you weren’t reasonably careful.
In New Hampshire, a victim’s contributory negligence will reduce their compensation. If you are 40% to blame, you’ll receive 40% less. However, if you are more than 50% at fault, you will receive nothing.
Do not be surprised if the trucking company points the finger at you and blames you solely for the accident. We go over the facts so that we can argue your negligence, if any, was minimal.
