If you’ve been hurt in a semi-truck or 18-wheeler collision, you’re likely confused about what your next steps should be. You probably know you may need to file a personal injury claim to get your life back on track and safeguard your future, but where should you begin?

It’s normal to have a lot of questions at this stage. The attorneys at Kohan & Bablove, Injury Attorneys are here to answer those questions. We want to make sure you’re well-prepared to seek compensation for your accident, so we’ve answered some common questions our clients ask us below.

Do I Need to Hire a Lawyer?

Legally, you don’t need to enlist the services of a lawyer to file a truck accident claim, but it’s highly recommended that you do anyway. Even small errors can cost you your ability to recover compensation, and you’re going to face significant pushback from truckers, trucking companies, and insurance companies. A lawyer can fight back.

Who Will Be Held Responsible?

Unlike car accidents, in which the liable party is often the other driver, truck accidents can be a bit more complex. In these cases, the truck driver may not be found liable at all. You might end up filing against the trucking company, truck manufacturer, or a government agency responsible for road safety instead.

What Is My Case Worth?

The value of your truck crash claim is likely one of the primary concerns you have at this point. The amount varies greatly from case to case, but it can usually be measured based on damages you’re eligible for, such as medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Are There Any Laws I Need to Be Aware Of?

Every state has regulations and ordinances pertaining to how long you have to file a claim in order for your case to be viable. In the state of California, you have two years from the time of your accident to file a claim for personal injury and three years to file for property damage.
