As Colorado drivers can see every day on the state’s roads and highways, plenty of commercial trucks haul large volumes of goodsand materials from place to place. Although truck accidents are less common than traffic accidents involving other motor vehicles, when they do occur the results can be devastating, especially at high speeds and when cars and pickup trucks and other small motor vehicles are involved. In many cases, occupants in other vehicles are injured or killed. Some of those who are injured face lifelong challenges in recovering.
The law firm of James L. Finegan, P.C., understands the challenges associated with truck accidents. Its attorneys know that truck accidents are more complex than common motor vehicle accidents because of the potential involvement of many parties. In truck accidents, liability is not limited to a truck driver alone. Insurance companies, mechanics who service trucks and trucking companies may all be liable and thus included as defendants in legal actions. However, because many tractor-trailers or 18-wheeler trucks are owned and operated by large companies with deep pockets and armies of attorneys, it is often difficult for plaintiffs to recover fair compensation even when an accident was caused by a truck driver.
The legal professionals at James L. Finegan, P.C., work with investigators to gather testimony and evidence that shows liability. This can include a truck’s maintenance records, drivers’ logs and even accident debris. Many insurance companies discount vital evidence in order to offer less compensation to injured parties. The offices of James L. Finegan, P.C., however, are committed to helping individuals recover fair compensation even with such resistance.
Truck accident victims should never be afraid to exercise their rights to secure compensation if an accident was the result of driver negligence. The website of James L. Finegan, P.C., offers more information. The information that may truly be of value in the situation.
