Modesto Truck Accident Lawyer
Modesto, California has a wonderfully rich history of agriculture. If you are a first-time visitor, especially in the springtime, you have to indulge in the nuts, veggies, and fruits that Modesto yields. If you live in Sacramento or San Francisco, Modesto is a beautiful day trip, where you will find the ocean, the mountains, and world-renowned parks, all in one place.
Its access to Interstate 5 and State Route 99 means that those living in or visiting the Modesto area regularly see large commercial trucks on highways and roadways. While commercial trucks and tractor-trailers are important for transporting goods from one part of the country to the other, these large vehicles also pose a risk for drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles. A crash between a passenger car and a large commercial truck can leave the occupants of the smaller vehicle with serious injuries and even death.Frequent Causes of Truck Accidents
- Inadequate training regarding safe driving
- Violations of Federal Laws and Regulations regarding hours and rest periods
- Unrealistic expectations of trucking companies regarding expected delivery times
- Failure to keep a proper lookout
- Improper turning maneuvers
- Following to closely
- Unsafe loading of cargo
There is no doubt that searching for a personal injury attorney is overwhelming. Sure, there are plenty to choose from. That isn’t the problem. The problem is that there are so many personal injury attorneys to choose from, and they all make such similar sounding promises, it is difficult to differentiate one from the other.
Remember that you only get one chance at winning your case. Whether you settle with the insurance agency or you take your case to court, you will just have one shot to get the compensation that you are entitled to. If you settle with the insurance company, understand that you will sign paperwork that states in great detail that you will never be able to sue the insurance company for future pain and suffering, so you need to be completely satisfied with the amount that you settle on.
If the insurance company does not offer you an amount that you can be satisfied with the rest of your life, then you will need an attorney who has a substantial amount of experience in the personal injury trial arena, so to speak. In fact, you will want someone who knows the ups and downs and the ins and outs of personal injury trial law if you have to battle an insurance company and its bigtime lawyers in the courtroom.
To help you make the decision process a little easier on you, I have put together some tips on choosing the right attorney in this YouTube video:Modesto FAQs
