Truck Accidents

An accident with an 18-wheeler or semi truck can be serious. Severe physical injury, as well as financial hardship due to mounting medical bills can all cause stress on you and your family. However, you do not have to face this alone. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Clark, James, Hanlin & Hunt, LLC, are experienced in Alabama truck accident law and are ready to take on your case.

Who Can Be Held Responsible?

A common misconception is that only the driver of the other vehicle can be held accountable for your injury and property damage. In the case of commercial vehicles such as large trucks, there are multiple parties that we may be able to pursue compensation from, including:

  • The company. The employer of the driver may be held responsible, depending on their policies and practices.
  • The driver's insurance company. Truck drivers often have a personal insurance policy, and this may be able to pay out compensation to you.
  • Corporate insurance. The employer will always have insurance on their vehicles.

When dealing with insurance companies, it is important to have a lawyer on your side. Insurance companies often try to offer a lowball settlement amount right away, and you may be tempted to accept due to your immediate need. However, a lawyer can evaluate whether a settlement offer is reasonable and whether you should accept.
