State and Federal Trucking Regulations
Strict state and federal regulations govern the trucking industry. These regulations apply to truck drivers, trucking companies, and vehicle maintenance companies.
Under these regulations, for example, trucks must be properly maintained, and truck drivers can only be behind the wheel for a limited number of hours per day. But truck drivers and the companies they work for often break these rules, resulting in truck accidents caused by poorly maintained vehicles, fatigued drivers, and other preventable circumstances.
Because of this, a trucking accident victim needs a personal injury lawyer who knows the laws governing the trucking industry and can hold the liable truck driver and trucking company accountable for breaking the rules. The trucking accident lawyers at Lopez Law will thoroughly investigate your claim and hold all liable parties accountable in court, if necessary.
How an Experienced San Antonio Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help
Immediately after a trucking accident, the trucking company, their insurance carrier, and their attorneys will begin to protect themselves legally. Their objective is to pay you as little money as possible in as little time as possible.
An adjuster from the liable insurance company may reach out to you soon after the accident with a quick and easy settlement. But you should not accept this offer, as it will most likely pay you only a fraction of what your claim is truly worth.
A skilled and experienced truck accident lawyer can negotiate a fair settlement with the liable insurance companies on your behalf. This will allow you to focus on recovering from your injuries and getting your life back on track.
While most trucking accident claims are settled out of court, our San Antonio truck accident attorneys will take your case to court if that is what it takes to get the liable insurance company to compensate you fully.
