What is the difference between a trucking accident and any other accident? [+]
Trucking accidents are those which involve an 18-wheeler truck or "big
rig" and a smaller passenger vehicle. In most cases, the injured
victims in the smaller vehicle can file for compensation and hold the
trucking company responsible, but the counsel and representation of a
skilled injury lawyer is mandatory in order to win an adequate payout.
Who can file a truck accident claim? [+]
Anyone who has been in a truck accident that they did not cause has the
right to file a claim. Truck accidents can be cause by
negligent employers, distracted truck drivers,
unsafe lane changes, and much more. As long as you played no part in causing your accident,
you deserve full compensation for any injury and property damage expenses.
When should I file my trucking accident claim? [+]
According to the Georgia statute of limitations for personal injury (
O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33), a truck accident victim has two years to file a claim after their accident. For
wrongful death ("loss of consortium"), they have up to four years after the
death of their loved one as a result of the accident. If you have suffered
either of these situations or both, don't wait. Contact a trucking
accident attorney immediately for counsel and assistance in filing a claim.
How much is my truck accident claim worth? [+]
It is not possible to come up with an exact value when it comes to your
injury claim. Many factors go into determining how much compensation you
deserve - medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, etc. Although
an exact number cannot be determined, a skilled Fulton truck accident
attorney could give you a general estimate after helping you gather all
the necessary documents and information. Call Kalka & Baer LLC today
for a free consultation.
Why do I need a trucking accident lawyer? [+]
