Truck Accident Attorney Buffalo NY

Buffalo NY Truck Accident Attorney 

At Wellborn Paluch, you will be represented by a Buffalo Truck Accident Attorney with extensive experience negotiating settlements and litigating cases involving trucking accidents, along with helping victims of these accidents recover substantial damages.  Thanks to its proximity to Canada, and all the international trade that is conducted over the interstate system, large trucks are basically part of the scenery in Western New York. Unfortunately, this also means that accidents involving semi-trucks, 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers are common. 

Accidents involving large trucks are generally far more serious than other kinds of accidents because of the size and weight of the vehicle. Because of this, special rules and regulations govern trucks and their drivers. If you are involved in an accident with a truck, you will want an lawyer that is familiar with the special rules regulating trucks to represent you. 

The most common causes of trucking accidents are mechanical issues, driver fatigue or drug use, inexperienced drivers, improperly loaded cargo, roadway issues, and traffic congestion. All of these common accident triggers can serve as the basis for a lawsuit, be it against the driver, the truck owner, the people who loaded the truck, other drivers, road maintainers, truck mechanics, inspectors or others. You should contact our experienced attorneys today (after seeking medical attention for injured persons and notifying the police), who are available to take your call 24/7, ensures that evidence identifying the cause of the accident and the responsible parties can be gathered and preserved. 

Federal and state law requires that truck drivers maintain logs detailing daily travels, operation and maintenance of the vehicle and daily work information.  Many trucks are even equipped with a mechanism to record data such as speed and distance.  It is imperative that you have an experienced attorney to act fast to secure information immediately following your accident.  Both are great sources for information about a trucking accident and having strong evidence in hand allows you to negotiate with insurance companies and other relevant parties from a stronger position. If they know your attorney has the evidence needed to take the case to trial and win they are much more likely to offer a fair settlement amount up front. In addition to putting you in a better negotiating position, having the proper evidence ensures that if you do have to go to trial because a fair settlement is not forthcoming, you and your attorney will be ready. 

A good injury attorney will also ensure that all of your injuries - physical, pain and suffering, emotional, and lost wages - are properly documented so you receive adequate compensation. Though injuries are often extensive in trucking accidents, many people accept settlements well below what they deserve for their injuries because they do not know what their claim may actually be worth.
