Why Do I Need Legal Representation after a Semi Truck Accident?

If you have been injured in a semi truck accident in Oklahoma City, you should quickly retain legal representation. The semi truck accident attorneys at Chiaf Law will protect your rights and pursue fair compensation, while you concentrate on recuperating from the physical, psychological and financial effects of your accident.

Here are a few reasons why it is important to hire a semi truck accident attorney:

You may be unaware of your rights.

Under Oklahoma law, semi truck accident victims are eligible for several types of damages, including medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain and suffering and permanent disability (if applicable). Also under state law, immediate family members have the right to file a wrongful death claim if a loved one is killed in a semi truck accident. With more than 60 years of experience, our tenacious and knowledgeable Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys have a thorough understanding of your rights after a semi truck accident. We will help you recover the compensation that you deserve.

Semi truck accidents can involve multiple parties.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, the truck driver, trucking company, broker and even truck manufacturer can all be held liable. We know how to determine the liability of all parties involved in order to maximize your recovery.

Trucking companies have their own strategy.

Immediately after an accident, the trucking company will quickly spring into action and attempt to devalue your claim and minimize the potential amount of compensation you can receive. Our Oklahoma City semi truck accident attorneys will nullify these attempts and steadfastly advocate on your behalf throughout the entire process.

Negotiations with truck insurance companies are tricky.

Trucking insurance companies have their own interests in mind and will try to persuade you to settle for less than you deserve. We will collect all pieces of key evidence — including medical bills, records and reports — and build a strong case in your favor. When the insurance company comes back with an offer, we will advise you whether it is fair. You will make the final call whether to take the offer or authorize us to file suit.
