Semi Truck Accident Lawyer
The Spokane semi truck accident attorneys at Parke Gordon Law Firm are experienced in representing clients in accidents caused by semi trucks, big rigs, tractor trailers, or other commercial vehicles. Semi truck accidents can cause serious injuries and sometimes result in wrongful death claims. Special considerations are owed in handling a semi-truck due to the special federal and state safety laws that regulate trucking companies and their drivers.
Do Not Wait to Hire a Semi Truck Accident Attorney
Semi truck companies are required by federal law to keep documents about their trucks and their drivers but after a period of time they may destroy those documents. You need to hire a semi truck lawyer immediately after a truck accident who can preserve evidence that can be used to demonstrate that the trucking company and its driver were negligent. An attorney can protect your rights by sending a special letter called a spoliation letter to the trucking company. After receipt of the letter, the trucking company will be forced to preserve the documents. If the documents show a pattern of willful and reckless behavior, you may be entitled to recover punitive damages.
Do not hurt your chances of obtaining a full recovery by waiting to hire a semi truck accident after the trucking company has destroyed valuable evidence that you could have used to prove your case.
Maximize Your Settlement With a Semi Truck Accident Lawyer
A person injured in a semi truck accident is entitled to recover a number of different types of damages, categorized as either economical or non-economical, or special or general. Many people settle for much less than they could recover from the trucking company or its insurance company because they did not hire an attorney and do not know what types of damages are available to a truck accident victim. Our experienced lawyers can build your case by employing experts to investigate liability, produce life care plans, economic analysis, and make a vocational rehabilitation assessment to maximize the value of the damages you are entitled to recover.
