LAW OFFICE OF E. MARVIN ROMERO

Attorney E. Marvin Romero: Aggressive Truck Accident Attorney

If you've been involved in an accident with a tanker truck or semi-truck, you're probably worried and uncertain about what will happen next. A truck accident can be serious – these vehicles weigh about 20 to 30 times what a passenger car does. Your injuries might be serious enough to require hospitalization, and your car may be a total loss. If you were not at fault in a semi-truck accident,  you have options. A savvy personal injury attorney can help you navigate through the insurance claims process.

Your first step should be contacting a personal injury lawyer, such as E. Marvin Romero. He'll help you get the documentation from the doctors and therapists. The police are experienced in determining how accidents are caused and who is at fault. This information is important, as it shows that you have a valid case. Make sure that you communicate with the insurance company only through your attorney – your fight will become his fight.

How Is a Semi-Truck Accident Different From a Car Crash?

Regulations for trucking companies are seriously enforced. Drivers have strict training responsibilities and are held to different standards than a regular driver. These include mandatory rest periods and a limit of how many hours they are allowed to spend diving in a row. Many companies also have drug and alcohol screening for their drivers.

These rules mean that the driver themselves isn't always the sole party responsible for your truck accident. If the driver violates trucking regulations, they may be liable for your injuries and property damage. In addition, whether or not the driver has been breaking the trucking industry's rules, their company may also hold a share of the legal obligation for damages.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Negotiating with an insurance company after you've been injured in an accident should be the last thing on your mind. However, you may have a claim for hospital bills, ongoing aftercare, and repairing or replacing your car. Insurance companies aren't in the business of handing over large sums of money, though, and they'll try to settle your semi-truck accident fast, and for as little as possible. If you accept a settlement right away, you may not be able to seek compensation for time lost from work due to your injuries or for physical therapy and aftercare that you'll need when you're released from the hospital.

Choosing a talented personal injury lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico, can make a difference in the amount of money the insurance company will pay you. Attorneys with expertise in litigating truck accidents understand the rules of the industry, as well as what the company is liable for and what the driver themselves are. The right attorney will work through the complicated process of filing your claim, ensuring that you have the right paperwork to justify your compensation and fight for you all the way through the court system or at the mediation table.
