Liability for Transportation Truck Accidents:
Transportation truck accidents can be attributed to a number of factors, the liability of such accidents are generally shared by more than one party. In most cases, it is the fault of the driver of the trucker which is responsible for the accident. However many times the truck manufacturer, truck maintenance company or trucking company can be held liable for using substandard, malfunctioned parts, improper maintenance of the truck, carelessness during the hiring process, or for not providing proper driver training which become the reason for transportation truck accident.
We at Khashan Law have contacts with private investigators, who can help in investigating the complete case to determine which party is liable and to file a case to claim the best compensation from the responsible parties.
We would advise you not to speak with an insurance company before understanding your legal rights and taking legal representation if you have been a victim of a transportation truck accident. Insurance adjusters are never on the side of the claimant, they are hired by the insurance company to ensure the pay-outs to the victims are limited and controlled. In most cases the settlement offered by them are not good enough to even cover the medical cost and other losses. Anything said by the claimant can be used for limiting their right to compensation, therefore it is advisable to let a legal representative speak and settle on your behalf.
