Why semi truck accident claims can be confusing
Accidents involving semi trucks in Oklahoma City often occur on major highways like I-40, I-44 and I-35. They can also happen anywhere in the city, from South Shields Boulevard to NE 4th Street and anywhere in between. But no matter where your accident occurs, you will likely have to deal with a wide range of complex legal issues. These include:
- A truck driver denies doing anything to cause your collision.
- A trucking company refuses to share information about:
- The truck driver's driving history
- The truck driver's Hours of Service (HOS) logs
- The truck's maintenance history
- The trucking company's hiring history
- The truck's inspection records
- A trucking company's insurance company pressures you to accept offer.
- A trucking company's insurance company refuses to return your calls.
Depending on the circumstances of your crash, you could be dealing with the truck driver and several different companies. These include the driver's trucking company, the company that owns the trailer, the company that loaded the trailer, the company that manufactured the items being transported as well as different insurance companies and attorneys for each one. Don't try to deal with all them on your own. We can help every step of the way.
How we can help you after your crash
Information matters after an accident. That's especially true when it comes to semi truck accidents. As your attorney, we can conduct a thorough investigation into your accident. We know how to analyze accident reports. And we can demand to see the trucking company's records.
This is especially important since trucking companies only have to keep certain records for a limited amount of time, including HOS records, which record how many hours the driver was on the road, when they took mandatory breaks and other important details.
There's no time to waste after your semi truck accident. And you have too much at stake to not take legal action. Depending on the circumstances of your crash, your accident-related expenses could add up to thousands or even millions of dollars.
