Determining Liability in Delivery Truck Accidents
In the case of a delivery truck accident, our lawyers must establish liability through various levels of investigation. When it is established that either the delivery truck driver was negligent in his or her driving behavior, that the truck itself had a faulty part or safety system, or that the trucking firm failed to maintain the truck and to keep it operating safely, you then have the right to seek compensation for all damages. These damages include all medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other losses based on the facts in the case.
In order to determine fault, various pieces of evidence are reviewed and analyzed, including:
- Physical evidence from the accident scene, such as vehicle damage from crash impact, tire skid marks, positioning of vehicles, and other data
- Witness testimony
- Police reports or reports from federal or state accident investigators
- Insurance company representatives’ reasoning for assigning fault
In order for us to help in the gathering and reviewing of the information in a timely manner, it’s important that you reach out to us as soon as possible. Our early involvement in your case could mean the difference between a poor and favorable outcome.
How Much Is Your Case Worth?
Whether your case goes to court or is resolved through settlement negotiations, the value of your case will vary depending on the extent of your injuries, the predicted time to recover from these injuries, the amount of work time and wages lost due to these injuries, and the long-term consequences of your injuries and other losses. In order to have the best chance for obtaining a favorable outcome, you will need the help of our highly qualified and dedicated New Orleans delivery truck accident lawyers.
