Why Truck Wreck Claims Are Different

If you or a loved one was injured after being hit by a truck, it is important to be aware that these cases are dramatically different than standard car accident claims. You will be best served by enlisting a lawyer with experience specific to these claims, who understands the unique challenges that will arise and knows how to overcome them.

At Brock Law Offices in Lincoln, Nebraska, our attorneys have more than 25 years of experience handling truck wreck claims. We come to these cases with one-of-a-kind insight into the trucking industry, thanks not only to our decades of handling these cases, but also to our involvement in the industry itself. Our record of positive results in these cases is proof of our ability to stand up for your rights and pursue maximum compensation for you.

The Black Box And Beyond

Some of the issues unique to truck crash claims are related to evidence and investigation. For example, most semitrucks are equipped with an event data recorder (EDR), more commonly referred to as a black box. This device may have information about speed, braking and more that could be critical in proving liability. Our lawyers take care to preserve and properly analyze black box data when appropriate in a truck crash case.

Other issues unique to truck accident claims are related to insurance, such as the MCS-90 endorsement, which may come into play. Other issues are related to liability. For example, broker liability may become an issue in some 18-wheeler accident cases. Our attorneys know these issues inside and out and can address them if or when they arise.

Then there are unique differences in how trucking companies and their insurers approach these cases. With so much on the line, they often become much more aggressive in defending these claims than an opponent in a standard car wreck case. We have the strength to match their aggression and fight back to ensure that you get what you rightfully deserve.
