Truck Accident Lawyer in Ann Arbor

If you’ve been injured in a trucking-related crash, you will probably need legal help to secure a fair settlement.

Proving Liability Requires Expertise

Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. have had many clients over the years who have been involved in a crash with a truck, and they don’t remember exactly what happened, or who was at fault. One of the roles of an attorney is to help clients figure out fault, as well as liability. This isn’t necessarily the same thing in truck accident cases.

In a truck accident case, there are several possible owners and responsible parties involved. The trucking company may be held liable when truck drivers are negligent, but if the truck was overloaded, it’s more likely the distributor that loaded the truck who is liable. If there are mechanical issues with the truck, it could be the leasing company responsible for vehicle maintenance who can be held liable.

Watch Out For Insurance Companies

If your truck accident injury is serious, sometimes an insurance company representing the trucking industry will approach you, the plaintiff, with a settlement offer. Don’t sign anything before consulting with a truck accident attorney. Remember that the defendant’s insurance company is trying to settle for as little as possible, no matter how nice they may seem to be in the moment.

In complex cases, settlement discussions can take place multiple times, as different payment scenarios are proposed, evaluated, and refined. You need to have someone there with you each step of the way, who can explain what it means to sign your name to any piece of paper.

Don’t Wait Too Long

Even if you believe that your insurance claim will be simple and straightforward, consulting with a truck or auto accident attorney will help it stay that way.

When you work with Cochran, Kroll & Associates you can be confident you’re not missing anything, or skipping any steps when making your claim. In the immediate aftermath of a serious car accident with a truck, you may not be physically or emotionally capable of handling any kind of settlement discussion. Working with us will take a lot of work and worry off your plate, so you can concentrate on your recovery process.
