Why You Need a North Dakota Truck Accident Attorney
Minot truck accident lawyer explains the legal issues at stake
More than half a million accidents take place each year that involve huge trucks, such as the tractor trailers and big rigs that are responsible for transporting so much of the food and other products that we use every day. While these trucks serve an important role in our transportation system, they also pose a serious threat on the roads. If you were to get into an accident with one of these trucks, the consequences could be devastating. These trucks weigh several tons, and even if they hit your car while traveling at low speeds, they can cause major damage.
After you or a loved one are involved in an accident with a big truck, you may get a call from the insurance company or the truck company asking you for information about what happened. These companies will certainly have high-powered lawyers working to help them minimize their liability, and anything you say can be used against you to reduce the compensation to which you are entitled for the accident — or to deny you compensation completely.
An experienced Minot truck accident lawyer will deal with the insurance or truck company on your behalf and coach you on what to say when your personal involvement is necessary so that you do not jeopardize your legal rights. At the Larson Law Firm, our attorneys advise clients to avoid talking to the insurance or truck company unless they are present and to never give a recorded statement. It is easy for the average person to make contradictory or damning statements in an attempt to provide honest information, and our attorneys help my clients avoid making such well-intentioned though costly mistakes.
Our attorneys also let our clients know that it is incredibly important to work with a lawyer to help you get the maximum settlement that you can for your injuries and losses. The insurance and trucking companies work with a team of lawyers who will do everything they can to reduce their liability. They may offer you a settlement that seems pretty good, but you can be sure that they are offering you much less than they think they will be ordered to pay you by a court.
We work to get our clients the best settlement possible by creating the strongest possible case. We work with a team of experts and investigators to collect evidence about the accident, provide expert testimony to the court, and prove the extent to which you have been impacted by the accident.
The insurance company will be conducting its own investigation to disprove its liability. It will be working with a team of experts to deny you compensation. Shouldn’t you have a team working for you?
Hiring an experienced Minot truck accident lawyer will level the playing field and help you get the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other personal losses.
