Why You Need a Truck Wreck Lawyer in Plano
Truck accidents involve unique laws and rules in Texas compared to other car accidents. Commercial trucking involves federal laws and trucking companies that may be liable. Going up against a truck company can be difficult as an individual without legal representation. Truck companies are powerful and have significant legal resources to refute liability. When you hire an attorney, you even the playing field. You give yourself more power during settlement negotiations, diminishing the odds of the insurance company taking advantage of you. You also have the ability to focus on things such as medical treatments and recovery while a professional takes care of your case.
Types of Truck Accidents and Injuries
The type of truck accident that caused your injuries or a loved one’s death can point to the identity of the at-fault party. If truck brake failure caused your collision, for example, the manufacturer of the defective brakes could be legally responsible for your damages.
