There is no disputing the importance of trucks in the American economy, but as Oklahoma readers know, they can be dangerous and destructive in certain situations. Due to their weight and size, collisions involving semi trucks often cause serious or even fatal damage. Victims of truck accidents would be wise to act quickly to protect their rights and interests.
Many truck accidents are caused by some type of driver negligence or error. Common causes of these types of accidents include distracted driving, speeding, fatigued driving, poorly loaded cargo, bad tires and more. Even though drivers are supposed to be carefully trained and fully informed of safety regulations, mistakes and ignorance still cause harm to innocent Oklahomans.
After a truck accident, it is critical to quickly and accurately identify all responsible parties. If a victim waits too long to file a claim, important evidence may be destroyed, altered or difficult to locate. Additionally, victims do not have to accept any settlement offers from insurance companies, but retain the right to seek legal counsel regarding the possibility of a civil claim. We can conduct a thorough investigation for you, seeking compensation from all appropriate sources.
The aftermath of truck accidents can be overwhelming and expensive. Fortunately, victims do not have to face the aftermath alone, but can have experienced counsel and support every step of the way. Financial compensation cannot undo the damage that you or a loved one suffered, but it can help you start your journey down the path of recovery.
