After a serious accident that causes personal injury involving an 18-wheeler or other large commercial vehicle, you may have many questions about trucking laws and what you are covered for the damages and loss. Contacting a personal injury attorney may be the best first step you can take before you regret settling for insurance cases that provide you with no comfort or resolution for the injuries you had incurred. In Chattanooga, law firms and attorneys, like those from Dennis and King Law, have in depth experience with trucking laws and are knowledgeable about trucking accidents.
When commercial trucking accidents occur, the people and companies involved (whether they are at fault or not) usually have little knowledge about what they can legally ask for to cover damages of assets, cost of medical bills, cost to repair vehicle damages, and insurance issues and hold ups for paying personal injury costs.
When trucking accidents involve a company, individuals who have incurred personal injury are usually already stressed enough from visiting doctors, taking their truck or vehicle in for repairs, talking to a ton of insurance agents who give you estimates that are barely comprehensible, and making accommodations for transportation to take care of the things you normally would before the accident occurred.
A lot of times, personal injuries that occur from trucking accidents can cause injuries that land you into the hospital, causing you to miss work and rack up expenses that are oftentimes unpaid. Returning to work after having a personal injury is also tough since most people are still healing and need accommodations made to their daily routines and often slows their productivity.
Having an experienced lawyer to walk you through an entire process of lawsuits involving truck accidents can provide relief, which is why most people who have experienced being in a commercial trucking accident with a lawyer recommend to people they know to do the same. An experienced attorney in trucking accidents can provide free consultation and choosing to have a law firm to work on your personal injury case can be the smartest, first step to getting what you deserve for the trauma, damages, and loss that was inflicted.
