After a tractor trailer accident, after the cops have gone and the tow truck has removed your car from the scene, you have to know how to proceed. If you are in the hospital due to injuries, you have to take the same steps as you would if you walked away with no injuries – you may simply need someone's help to carry them all out. The Lassen Law Firm, Philadelphia truck accident attorneys, have a reduced contingency fee of only 29%!
The cops most likely wrote out an accident report. This may or may not tell you who was at fault. The cops are not required to open an investigation about this. However, if it was obviously the tractor trailer driver's accident, it may be included in the report.
The first call you make should be to the lawyer. Do not speak to anyone from any insurance company without first speaking to an attorney!
If the cops filled out the accident report to show the driver of the tractor trailer was at fault, it's a pretty cut and dry case. The driver is at fault and they are financially responsible for the accident. And the lawyer will help to ensure that they remain financially responsible for every aspect of the accident. If there was nothing on the report, then an investigation needs to be carried out.
Essentially, it's important to find out what happened and why the accident happened. If after the investigation it shows that the driver of the tractor trailer was at fault, it will be easier to proceed into the courtroom to hold the driver accountable – and get a settlement.
You deserve to find out who was responsible for the accident and hold the driver responsible. Your insurance company is only going to help you so much and that's why the second call needs to be to a Philadelphia truck accident attorney. The help you get won't cost you anything until you win your case.
The Lassen Law Firm only deducts a 29% fee, not the standard 40-45% like other firms.
