Injured in a Truck Accident? Here's How to File a Lawsuit
How We Build a Trucking and Bus Accident Case
A prompt and thorough investigation is of the utmost importance in a Trucking and Bus accident claim. At Lane & Lane, LLC, our attorneys leave no stone unturned in their effort to secure financial compensation for our injured clients.
Our investigation includes interviewing witnesses, photographing the scene and the vehicles involved, securing and examining the vehicles, studying police reports and more. We will obtain data from the truck's black box data recorder and its GPS system.
Knowing What to Look For
We will obtain and review the truck driver's logbooks. Our lawyers know to request both sets of books those the driver often keeps to show to the authorities and those that contain the actual time spent behind the wheel.
Frequently, we will retain an accident reconstructionist to give an expert opinion about the cause of the accident.
It is crucial to investigate the accident as quickly as possible, before important evidence is altered or destroyed. It is important to retain possession of your vehicle in the same condition it was at the time of the accident. Do not get it repaired, sell it, or send it off to a junk yard before we examine and photograph it.
In addition to conducting a proper investigation, we are skilled at evaluating the damages you have suffered, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, property damage, and lost wages and loss of future earning ability.
In cases of catastrophic injury, we may work with an economist and a certified life care planner to establish the current and future cost of your accident-related expenses. These may include ongoing medical expenses, remodeling the home to make it handicapped accessible, a handicapped-equipped van, attendant care and wheelchairs or other devices.
