Once Akin & Tate attorneys are retained, we begin a thorough investigation into all causes and injuries obtained from the resulting semi-truck accident. Once our preliminary investigation is complete, we work to identify all sources of compensation associated with the semi-truck accident. Trucking crashes involving cars typically result in more severe injuries for drivers of automobiles because of the difference in weight of a car and truck.
Akin & Tate is well prepared to assist in obtaining compensation for people who have suffered brain, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries, including the wrongful death of a loved one.
Early intervention by a knowledgeable semi-truck accident attorney is a key to maximizing settlement recovery as compensation. For example, the law requires that semi-truck drivers maintain a logbook for inspection for a limited period after a semi-truck accident. Examination of the truck driver’s log may reveal the cause of the accident to be lack of sleep, overdriving, or other forms of driver negligence. Finding the cause of the trucking accident goes a long way. Often, this results in being compensated with a settlement award.
