Delaware Truck Accident Lawyers
Pursuing Compensation for Victims Injured in 18-Wheeler Accidents
Accidents involving tractor trailers result in tons of metal hurling through the streets. The injuries that result are often catastrophic or fatal. At McCann Dillon Jaffe & Lamb, LLC, Attorneys at Law, our Delaware tractor trailer accident lawyers work relentlessly towards obtaining the financial resources you need to recover after a devastating 18-wheeler accident.
The Importance of Taking Swift Legal Action After an 18-Wheeler Crash
Companies that employ and insure truck companies do everything they can to avoid taking responsibility for their driver’s negligence. Immediately after an accident, they dispatch a team of truck accident responders to build a case that favors their truck driver. They are going to make an attempt to incriminate you as the negligent driver by getting you to make statements against your interests. We know this because we used to work for the insurance companies. Hiring an experienced Delaware truck accident lawyer before making any statements protects you from doing something that may potentially hurt your case or limit your right to recovery. We put our team of investigators to work right away to collect evidence to enhance your case.
Common Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents
Being injured in an accident is not enough to recover full compensation for your injuries. You need to prove that the other driver was at fault because your damages can be limited in proportion to the fault the court assigns to your actions. The more the defendant can persuade the court that you were partially at fault, the less monetary compensation you receive. Our Delaware 18-wheeler accident lawyers build comprehensive cases to establish your innocence during the events that lead to your injuries. Our vigorous pursuit of compensation for our clients has made us some of the most feared personal injury lawyers in Delaware. Common causes of semi accidents include:
- Breaking safety regulations
- Defective equipment on the truck
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Driving a truck unsafely in inclement weather
- Intoxicated driving
- Lack of maintenance
- Lack of warnings about hazards on the truck
- Not properly securing loads
- Operating at an unlawful speed
