Why You Need a Truck Accident Lawyer

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration or FMCSA, out of around 415 thousand police-reported large-truck crashes in 2020, 1% led to death, and 24% to serious injury.  The sheer size of trucking vehicles makes them more likely to become crash risks because their braking capability gets minimized, and they tend to lose control of the large vehicle on narrow, slippery roads. Truckers also tend to lose focus due to fatigue and drowsiness

Because of the trucks’ massive weight and size, a truck accident victim typically requires significant medical treatment and possible long-term care, aside from other damages and losses. This leads to substantial financial burden on the side of the victim. 

Dealing with the aftermath of a complex accident can be difficult and may require the help of an experienced personal injury attorney. Below are some unique complexities of handling a truck accident case:

  • High-stakes due to severe injuries and damages: Truck accidents, especially those involving commercial vehicles, are high-stakes cases because of the severity of injuries and damages a victim may sustain, such as disfigurement, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, or sometimes even death. A senior expert lawyer can help assess the extent of the injuries, damages, and losses from medical expenses, loss of wages, and other recovery expenses. 
  • Specific federal and state trucking regulations: Due to complex and particular trucking industry regulations in different states, a knowledgeable truck accident attorney with extensive experience handling similar cases can best help you navigate the intricacies of your case. Some legal issues associated with commercial truck accident cases are vehicle maintenance, driver qualifications, driver’s hours of service, and cargo loading rules and inspection. 
  • Multiple potentially liable parties: Because the trucking operations involve various phases, it also means that multiple parties may be held liable in a truck crash. Some of these may be the truck driver, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer, and the cargo loaders. A thorough investigation with the help of an expert trucking accident lawyer in accessing black box data and analysis of logbooks may help speed up the process of determining liability. 
  • Aggressive legal teams from trucking companies and insurers: Because trucking companies are usually affiliated with big corporations, they tend to have aggressive legal teams and comprehensive insurance policies, which makes them challenging to negotiate during a settlement hearing. It also makes it more tricky to go into the trial because the stakes are high. This makes the role of a legal representative vital to help you develop the best strategy to get maximum compensation.

Our Areas of Specialization

18-Wheeler Accidents

Road accidents involving 18-wheeler or tractor-trailer trucks (also called big rigs), where there is a tractor in the front end and a semi-trailer at the rear end, often cause serious injuries, massive damages, and even wrongful death. From 2020 to 2021, large-truck crashes that led to death rose by 17%, with more than 5,700 fatalities

When they collide with passenger vehicles, property or obstruction in the road, or a bystander, it typically results in complex and high-stakes truck accident injury cases, which may necessitate the help of an expert legal representative to help navigate the complexities of the case. Our truck accident attorneys at Frantz Law Group are adept in handling cases of wrongful death so you can rest assured that we can get the justice you deserve for this fatal loss due to a semi-truck accident.

Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Commercial vehicle accidents involve large trucks that collide with another car, a smaller vehicle or hit a pedestrian. A truck crash of this magnitude inevitably leads to significant property damage, catastrophic injuries, or even fatalities. At Frantz Law Group, we aim to seek justice and hold liable parties accountable for the damages and losses our clients have to go through. We stand and advocate for our clients by helping each one be fully and fairly compensated.

Load-related Truck Accidents

Load-related truck accidents happen when cargo on a commercial vehicle is not loaded properly and securely or when they exceed the weight limit that they shift or fall off, causing dangerous situations on the road. These accidents can result in serious injuries, fatalities, and damages involving other motorists and pedestrians or even infrastructures and properties on the road. Seeking legal representation is essential because load-related truck accident cases can be complicated by involving multiple parties who may be responsible for inspecting the cargo, maintaining the equipment used, and other factors. By hiring an experienced lawyer, you can rest assured that your rights as a truck accident victim can be defended, and you can get the justice you deserve.

Truck Maintenance Negligence

Some major truck collisions may also be due to truck maintenance negligence. This means trucking companies may have failed to observe proper truck maintenance and follow safety regulations. Because this involves multiple parties, determining liability may be tricky. An experienced trucking accident attorney can help you evaluate your case, and assist in every step of the investigation so that you may hold liable parties accountable. 

Truck Driver Negligence

Other truck crashes are caused by the truck driver’s negligence while on the road. It could be due to feeling fatigued and driving while tired, doing something on their phone while driving, or not following traffic rules. In this instance, legal representation may be helpful so you can file personal injury claims and make a successful monetary compensation recovery from the liable party.

We value transparency and strive to keep our clients up-to-date and informed of developments about their cases so they can actively participate in every step of the process. Our attorneys explain complex legal issues and matter about the case in a palatable way to help clients make informed decisions.

Our top lawyers, who specialize in truck accident and personal injury claims, strive to understand each client’s unique situation so that we can provide individualized legal assistance. We tailor our strategies, focusing on your specific circumstance, so that we may be able to deliver personalized and compassionate representation to address your legal needs. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the attention, care, and advocacy you need the most at this time. 

No Win, No Fee Commitment

Aligned with our commitment to put our client’s best interest at the forefront, we offer a no-win, no-fee payment structure. This means that you will only be charged legal fees if our firm is able to recover monetary compensation for your case successfully. This contingency fee arrangement ensures that clients can receive legal assistance without being burdened with upfront, out-of-pocket fees. 

Understanding the Claim Process

Filing a truck accident claim

Filing for a truck accident claim starts with seeking immediate medical attention. If you or someone you know got involved in a truck accident, you should urgently go to the nearest emergency room and seek urgent medical care. Document all the injuries and compile all the medical records and medical bills. This will help build your case later. 

Seeking the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer may be necessary to guide you through the process of filing a truck accident claim and to defend your rights during a settlement negotiation or trial later. Upon setting up a meeting, you can expect to be oriented on the legal process and for your case to be evaluated. Your truck accident attorney can guide you through the investigation and help you establish that the defendant’s negligence caused the injury you sustained or the wrongful death. They will also devise the best course of action and decide whether to go for settlement or file a lawsuit.

After the initial case evaluation, you can expect to collect evidence like photos from the accident scene, gather witness testimonies, file a police report, and get in touch with your insurance company to let them know of the extent of the injury and damages. Throughout all of these, our law firm’s legal representative will be in close contact with you for any kind of legal assistance. 

Supporting you through each phase

Our attorneys at Frantz Law Group have years of extensive experience in handling truck accident injury cases. You can rest assured that we will be able to accompany you as you go through the entire legal process. We are dedicated to providing each of our clients with attentive care and support from the time you first make contact with us, until we can hold at-fault parties liable through a successful compensation recovery. 

Our commitment to our clients begins upon initial consultation, where we evaluate your case, determine if the case is worth pursuing, and provide you with information to set your expectations regarding the legal process. During this time, we also guide you as to the following steps, which typically include gathering evidence, going through an initial investigation, conducting witness interviews, filing documents, negotiating with insurance companies, coming up with a strategy for the settlement negotiation, and preparing for litigation or trial, if needed.  

Throughout the entire process, our experienced truck accident attorneys will be with you along the way, updating you in a transparent and timely manner, clearly answering any questions you may have, and working with you closely to make adjustments to the case to get the best outcome possible for you. 

Fee structure and costs

Our law firm offers a contingency-fee payment structure, which means that you do not have to pay upfront fees out-of-pocket. To help ease the financial burden of our clients, we only collect fees upon successful compensation recovery after a settlement negotiation agreement has been made or after winning the case in a trial. Note that fees might change if the case goes on trial, so it is best to ask your legal representative about it when you reach out for a free consultation.
