Investigating your truck accident claim
After advising the insurance company that we are representing you, we get to work investigating the trucking accident that caused your injuries, while you focus on recovering. We secure documentation of driving records and logbooks. Truck drivers must comply with regulations on the weight of the load they are carrying, the amount of time they can drive continuously and the number and length of breaks they take. Many trucking companies have seasoned investigators and accident re-constructionists – and so do we. From depositions and discovery, to the data analysis of the truck’s black box, we remain focused on the best outcome for you.
Truck drivers are often under the gun, working long hours to make deliveries on time. In some cases, driver fatigue can lead to serious truck accidents. At Shefren Law, we have extensive experience helping accident victims obtain compensation for their injuries. The Department of Transportation (DOT) regulates the number of hours truckers can work. We are well-prepared to investigate the factors leading up to your accident and we help you obtain as much compensation as possible.
Let us handle the lawyers.
Unfortunately, most claims filed against trucking companies are met with a significant level of resistance. Trucking companies literally have an entire army of lawyers in the courtroom, doing everything they possibly can to prevent you from getting the compensation you so desperately need. Let us handle the lawyers.
We seek out all potentially liable parties to maximize your compensation. Even third parties may be included, like parts manufacturers or loading companies.
