Are Trucking Accidents the Same as Auto Accidents?

Are trucking accidents cases the same as auto accident cases?

NO! Truck accident cases are different in more ways than can be discussed in a short article. If you are injured in a collision with a truck, it is imperative that you retain an attorney with experience in litigating truck accident cases. Before becoming an attorney, Mark Biddison spent ten years in the trucking business as a driver, including several years as an over-the- road driver for several well-known companies, as well as being an owner-operator, and has experience in hauling hazardous cargo; specialized heavy haul; as well as perishable freight such as meat and produce. Mr. Biddison has over 1,000,000 miles as an over-the- road driver and is the recipient of several safe driver awards. Mr. Biddison has handled many truck accident cases, using his specialized knowledge to obtain large settlements in cases other attorneys could not handle. In a way, the difference between handling a truck accident case vs. an auto accident case, is the difference between handling a complex medical malpractice case and a case of simple negligence. You must have the assistance of an experienced trucking accident attorney if you are to obtain a full and fair recovery of damages in a truck accident case. If you are injured in a collision with a truck, it is important that you retain an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Your initial consultation is free. There is no attorney fee unless we recover money for you. If you have been injured, call today for a consultation.

WHAT IS MY CASE WORTH?

This is a very often-asked question, especially in auto-collision cases. As tempting as it can be to opine as to value during the initial interview, it is virtually impossible to answer that question with any degree of accuracy. We can often express a range of value, if we have enough information regarding the nature and extent of a person’s injuries; the amount of medical expenses; the amount of income loss, etc.; however, a lot of time, effort, information gathering, and analysis goes into calculating the value of a person’s claim. For instance, does the person have pre-existing conditions which may explain their complaints/restrictions in activities? Did the person suffer a concussion/closed head injury in the collision? Were there injuries which required surgery, and which may have long term chronic consequences? Are there issues of who was at fault in causing the collision or questions regarding causation of injuries and damages? Are there insurance issues or health care reimbursement issues which will affect the net recovery? Are there first-party insurance coverage issues (such as Underinsured Motorist Coverage) which may increase the potential recovery? There are many other factors which affect the value of a personal injury claim. Contact us if you have questions. The initial interview is free. We work on a contingent, percentage fee basis, so there is no attorney fee unless we recover money for you. Beware of those who are quick to tell you what your case is worth.
