What is a Truck Accident Claim Process?

After a truck accident, call The Advocates to get your accident claim started.

We will let your insurance know to not bother or harass you, but to deal with us instead. This way, you can focus on healing. As you get treated, we’ll gather medical bills and records to help build your case and have documentation for the insurance company to negotiate a fair settlement for your injuries. Once we’ve gathered all the documents and records we need, your attorney will fight to get you the best compensation.

Truck accident claims vary in timeline and how long they last, but the sooner you get treatment from a doctor and the sooner you get an accident attorney involved, the sooner you will get back to your life.

Why Do I Need a Truck Accident Attorney?

Because of the numerous parties potentially involved in the truck crash, it is important that you retain a knowledgeable truck accident lawyer – one who is familiar with Utah trucking accidents and understands the laws associated. You also want an attorney who knows the importance of investigating the accident scene and descriptions to determine the true cause of the truck accident and who was at fault.

There are many contributing factors to accidents with big rigs. Trucks have huge blind spots, also referred to as “no zone” areas.  Typically, the larger the truck, the larger the blind spot.  We all know about blind spots on the sides of our vehicle.  The truck driver has a blind spot in the back of the truck, as well as in the front of the truck and they are larger than we realize.  Be aware of truck blind spots, and avoid these areas if possible.  Typically, if you cannot see the truck driver in his mirror, the truck driver probably cannot see you, and a truck accident may occur. These types of accidents are most common, and we know how to handle them. If you were involved in another type of truck accident, we can help! Call The Advocates, it’s free and there is no risk to you. If you were involved in any type of trucking accident, contact an experienced Utah truck accident lawyer to discuss your truck accident crash.
