Determining Liability

Identifying the party or parties at fault in a truck accident can be challenging. It might involve not only the truck driver but also the trucking company, maintenance contractors, or even the manufacturer of the truck or its components. 
A truck accident lawyer at the Ben Dominguez Law Firm will also consult with experts, such as private investigators and accident reconstructionists, to help identify all liable parties involved and prove negligence.

Calculating Damages

Our goal is to ensure you’re able to continue to receive the medical care you need now and in the future.

Negotiating With Insurance Companies

Insurance companies often try to minimize payouts, and their claims adjusters may contact you to settle quickly. When they call, they will ask to record your statement when discussing your side of the story. This is done in the hope that you say something that could harm your claim, such as admitting fault. If they do offer a settlement and you refuse, they may contact you several times a day, warning you that you will not be able to get a higher settlement and giving you a deadline to accept it. In most cases, these fast settlements are never enough to cover the cost of accident-related damages. A claims adjuster will often make the settlement offer before they even know the extent of your injuries. 

A truck accident attorney at the Ben Dominguez Law Firm can handle communication with insurance company on your behalf, ensuring that your rights are protected and that you are not pressured into accepting an unfair settlement.

"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."

What Are Common Injuries Sustained in Tractor Trailer Accidents?

Trailer trailer accidents often result in fatalities or life-altering injuries. Very rarely does an accident victim walk away from this type of catastrophic motor vehicle collision. 

At the Ben Dominguez Law Firm, our legal team has handled countless truck accident claims that have involved the following types of injuries:

Is it Worth Hiring a Truck
Accident Lawyer?

Some people decide to pursue compensation without the assistance of an experienced truck accident lawyer. However, truck accident claims are much more complicated than collisions that involve two passenger vehicles. 

Because these accidents are so complex, it’s often worth it to hire legal representation if you find yourself dealing with the following issues:

You Were Severely Injured

Big rig accidents usually result in fatalities or life-changing injuries, due to their massive weight and size. These types of injuries often require extensive, ongoing medical treatment.

Multiple Parties Are Involved

18-wheeler accidents usually involve multiple parties, including the trucker, trucking company, cargo loaders, maintenance contractors, and possibly the manufacturer of truck components. Multiple liable parties often means you’ll have to deal with multiple insurance policies and more than one insurance company.

Federal Regulations

The trucking industry is heavily regulated by federal laws established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Violations of these laws can cause an accident. A truck accident lawyer will be familiar with these laws and how they apply to your case.

Black Box Data and Electronic Logging Devices

Trucks are equipped with electronic data recorders and Electronic Logging Devices. It may be difficult to access this data without the help of an experienced attorney.

Challenging Accident Investigation

Big rig crashes often require an in-depth investigation, including accident reconstruction, skid mark analysis, and driver log evaluation. An attorney has the resources to conduct this type of investigation.

Challenging Settlement Negotiations

A trucking company and their insurer may use aggressive tactics to deny a claim and minimize liability. A truck accident lawyer can protect your rights and handle all interactions with the insurance company.

Potential for Product Liability

If the accident was caused by a defective truck part or equipment, your attorney can file a product liability claim against the manufacturer.
