A truck accident lawyer must prove four elements before you can receive any compensation for your damages:
- That the person or company owed you a duty of care;
- That the person or company breached the duty of care or in other words was negligent;
- That you suffered damages;
- That the person or company’s negligence was a cause of your damages.
How To Prove Your Truck Crash Case
The law provides that the driver and the trucking company owe you a duty of care, so the first element is already established.
In addition, your attorney will work to establish your damages by:
- Obtaining all of your medical records and bills;
- Getting any evidence of lost earnings;
- Hiring a medical expert to help establish the nature and extent of your injuries, a diagnosis and prognosis, the extent of any impairment, and whether your damages were caused by the accident;
- Speaking to you and to witnesses concerning your damages;
- Organizing and properly documenting the evidence concerning your damages;
- Reviewing, analyzing, and evaluating the facts and expert opinions concerning your damages.
