Personal Injury Lawyer Protecting the Rights of Los Angeles Truck Accident Victims
Truck accidents are especially deadly because of how massive these vehicles
are. Big rigs dwarf all cars, large SUVs and pickup trucks, as they can
be up to 80 feet in length and around 80,000 pounds. There is sure to
be incredible damage to the smaller vehicles involved and most likely
injuries or even
wrongful death as well.
If you have recently been involved in a truck accident, it is important
that you speak with a knowledgeable
Los Angeles personal injury attorney to learn what your legal rights are and how to keep them protected. Accidents
of any kind produce large expenses and you may be entitled to damages
to help you with your financial and emotional burden.
Talk to Us Before You Talk to Their Insurance Company
Truck drivers are taught what to say and how to act after an accident,
but most other people who are involved in the wreck are not sure how to
proceed. Our first piece of advice is that you talk to your lawyer before
giving any statements or answering questions about your version of the
accident or any medical conditions that are a result of it. You may even
be offered a settlement from the insurance company that represent the
truck driver or their employer, and we cannot stress highly enough, that
you should not accept any monies until you discuss your case with your
legal representation. Chances are that anything they offer might not cover
your costs and losses and we may be able to help you recover more. Plus,
accepting a settlement will prevent you from further legal action and
will close your case.
At Okabe & Haushalter, our experienced and aggressive lawyers know
how to seek the compensation that you need and deserve for your injuries,
pain, suffering and the damage that was caused to your vehicle. Recovering
from an accident where you were not at fault should be enough of a burden
without adding the stress of how you will pay your basic expenses, plus
all of the medical bills that add up quickly. We will advocate for your
best interests and are prepared to fight to make sure that the party that
is responsible for your pain is held liable.
