Determining Liability in Delivery Truck Accidents
In the case of a delivery truck accident, our New Orleans truck accident lawyer must establish liability through various levels of investigation. When it is established that either the delivery truck driver was negligent in his or her driving behavior, that the truck, itself, had a faulty part or safety system, or that the trucking firm failed to maintain the truck and to keep it operating safely, you then have the right to seek compensation for all damages. These damages include all medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other losses based on the facts in the case.
In order to determine fault, various pieces of evidence are reviewed and analyzed including:
- Examine physical evidence from the accident scene such as vehicle damage from crash impact, tire skid Mitchers, positioning of vehicles, and other data.
- Speak with witnesses or review witness testimony.
- Review the police reports or reports from federal or state accident investigators.
- Talk to insurance company representatives regarding their reasoning for assigning fault.
- In order for us to help in the gathering and reviewing of the information in a timely manner, our early involvement in you case could be crucial with regard to the outcome.
