Semi-Truck Accident in Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City Personal Injury Lawyer
Were you injured in a motor vehicle accident with a semi-truck? You may have been driving down the freeway when a large commercial truck suddenly veered into your lane, running you off the road. You may have been struck while passing lawfully through an intersection or turning at a stop light. You may have even been a pedestrian, cyclist or
motorcycle rider struck by a semi driver who was not paying attention and simply "did not see you." No matter the specific circumstances of your semi-truck accident, a truck accident attorney at our law firm can help.
Handling Your Semi Truck Accident Claim
A semi-truck is a type of commercial vehicle that is used primarily to transport cargo and goods. It is called a semi-truck because it consists of a tractor (the part of the truck that holds the driver and the engine) and a semi-trailer. The semi-trailer is called such because it does not have a front axle. The front of the semi-trailer attaches to the tractor and a portion of the cargo weight is therefore supported by the tractor's rear axles.
It can be difficult to handle a claim or lawsuit related to a semi-truck accident. The reason for the difficulty lies with the fact that you will need to deal with the insurance company and often the trucking company that the semi-truck driver works for. These are often large corporations that may have an attorney or team of attorneys read to counter your claim. By involving a lawyer of your own who is experienced and has the resources to properly handle your case, however, you can help ensure that you have the greatest opportunity at a positive case result. This will make a significant difference in your ability to recover full financial damages for medical care, loss of earnings and more.
