Truck Accident Attorney in Jonesboro

truck accident lawyerTractor-trailers and other heavy trucks weighing up to 80,000 pounds travel roads in and around Jonesboro every day. These massive trucks are imposing enough when their drivers are alert and cautious. When truckers are distracted, tired, reckless, or otherwise negligent, serious crashes can result. The size and weight of 18-wheelers and other trucks mean they are harder to stop, difficult to steer, and more prone to tipping over. To make matters worse, many truckers are pushed to drive past the point of fatigue. Some truck drivers turn to pills to stay awake, and to cell phones, tablets, or other distractions to ease the boredom. When careless behavior causes a tragic truck crash in Jonesboro, the trucking companies that make massive profits while endangering the public must be taken to task for their negligence. At Butler Kahn, our truck accident attorneys have a proven track record of helping clients get on the road to recovery after tragic accidents in Jonesboro and surrounding areas.

What Makes Truck Accidents Different from Passenger Car Crashes?

Truck accidents are often much more complicated than passenger vehicle crashes because of several factors. For one, large trucks like semis, box trucks, and dump trucks are much bigger and heavier than typical passenger vehicles, so these accidents typically leave victims with injuries that are much more severe than in other kinds of wrecks. Trucking companies often gave insurance policies with much higher limits than the policies of average drivers – typically $750,000 at minimum for trucks that work across state lines, and $100,000 for trucks that only operate in Georgia. These increased insurance limits, along with the more severe injuries, often means there is much more money at stake in truck crash claims than in typical auto accident claims. That means that the defendants – the truck company, the truck driver, and the insurance company – fight harder. Furthermore, multiple individuals, companies, and other entities might be liable for a truck collision. Each party may try to shift blame to others to try to avoid paying their part.

Why You Need a Jonesboro Truck Accident Lawyer on Your Side

You don’t have to go through the difficult process of a truck accident claim by yourself. When you work with a skilled and compassionate Jonesboro truck collision attorney from Butler Kahn, we can relieve your stress by standing by your side and handling all aspects of your claim for you. Your lawyer can listen to your story, answer any questions you have about your case, help you understand your legal options, and craft a legal strategy based on your personal needs and goals. Our legal team can launch an independent investigation into the true cause of the truck crash that harmed you. This could involve securing more difficult-to-access types of evidence like driving logs, “black box” data recorders, cell phone records, driving records, and other data. It might also be necessary to work with accident reconstruction experts who can testify to support your claim. Your attorney can also handle all of the paperwork needed for your case and represent your best interests in any discussions with insurance companies, trucking companies, and others involved in the case. Our goal will be to negotiate with insurance adjusters to seek the maximum compensation you deserve. However, if the insurer won’t agree to a fair settlement, we will be prepared to tackle all of the complexities needed to file a lawsuit on your behalf and fight for your legal rights in court. Throughout this process, our compassionate attorneys will give you the support you deserve in this difficult time and connect you to resources to help you get on the road to recovery.
