Don't Settle for Less Than You Deserve
If you were recently hurt in a truck accident, you may be facing an uphill

fact, they often do everything in their power to pressure you into settling
for less money than you deserve. This is why you need to retain the help
of a Los Angeles truck accident attorney from
Biren Law Group.

obtaining maximum compensation on your behalf.

Who is at Fault for the Accident?
After a truck accident, it is not always clear
who is at fault. In most cases, a detailed investigation is required to get a clear answer.
Although it may seem obvious that the truck driver was the one to blame,
they might not be the only party responsible.
Truck driver fatigue: truckers sometimes violate rest break laws, causing them to stay on the
road even when they are past the point of fatigue. Investigations can
uncover phony logbooks, showing the illegal hours the driver really worked.
Truck driver negligence: trucking companies and their insurance companies act quickly to protect
themselves and their drivers from liability after an accident. Black box
data recorders can be tampered with if not promptly preserved.
Product defects: you should not automatically assume that the truck driver was at fault.
The accident may have been caused by defective vehicle design or faulty
component parts, making the manufacturer of that part the liable party.
Trucking law violations: all truck drivers in the country are required to abide by federal trucking
laws, which dictate how long a driver is allowed to work without taking
a break and how often they must maintenance their vehicle.
How to Handle the Insurance Company
Biren Law Group cautions all truck accident victims and their families
to be wary of an official-looking person with a clipboard. Very soon after
a truck accident, you can expect to receive a visit, even while you are
in the hospital, from a representative of the trucking company or its
insurance company. This person will want a statement from you.
You do not have to give any sort of statement about the truck accident
until you have consulted a personal injury attorney. In fact, it is recommended
that you don’t. Even if you know that you weren’t at fault,
you should let your lawyer communication with the trucking company and
their insurance company. This is for the benefit of your accident claim.
