Kingman Truck Accident Lawyer
When a large truck collides with a passenger-sized car, the outcome can be disastrous. The victims of these accidents often suffer serious injuries that can shatter their lives and the lives of the people they love the most.
The attorneys at Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law P.L.L.C. know far too well just how life-changing a trucking accident can be. Our lawyers have decades of collective experience assisting people who have suffered devastating injuries because of a trucking accident. One of the most common trucking accidents that we see in our legal practice occurs when a truck driver makes an unsafe lane change and collides with a car either passing on the left or right.
Serious accidents also often happen when a truck is making a right turn from the left lane. Although the truck is supposed to remain in the right lane keeping the trailer as close as possible to curb and only swinging out into the left lane long enough to complete the turn, truck drivers often make right turns all the way from the left lane. When a truck driver swerves the trailer into the left lane to make a right turn, a car or bicycle with the space to pass on right is likely to be struck when the truck attempts to complete the right hand turn.
Other types of truck accident claims that come across our desk involve cars that are rear-ended by semitrailers and other large trucks, as well as truck drivers who turn left in front of passenger vehicles, resulting in a serious collision.
Trucking Companies Have Specialized Insurance Companies
Although truck drivers are sometimes completely at fault for a collision, winning a truck accident case can be an uphill battle. Trucking companies typically work with their own specialized insurance companies that have superior experience in defending truck accident cases. This means that you are likely to have a serious fight on your hands, even in the most straightforward cases of obvious fault. An accident victim who is not represented by an experienced Kingman truck accident lawyer is no match for the expertise of these powerful insurance companies.
We Will Launch a Rapid and Thorough Investigation
When a truck accident victim hires our firm, our legal team will take quick action to investigate the crash. A thorough and rapid investigation is critical to the success of your case. Our lawyers will locate and review all the evidence to determine the cause or causes of the accident. Our investigation will examine many different factors, including possibilities of an overloaded truck, mechanical defects, driver noncompliance with federal break and sleep standards, and impaired or distracted driving at the time of the accident.
Talk with Your Lawyer First
If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident, you should always seek out the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer before you speak with anyone from the insurance company. Arizona law does not require you to provide the insurance company with a statement, and we strongly recommend that you do not do so. Talking with the insurance company without the advice of qualified counsel can make your recovery much more difficult. While the aftermath of an accident can be very confusing and stressful, we invite you to schedule a free consultation with our firm to find out how we can help. Call our firm today, at 928-716-1331.
