Most people would benefit enormously from hiring a lawyer after a commercial vehicle accident for two reasons. First, collisions with commercial vehicles often result in serious injuries. That means you may need time to recover, and a Phoenix commercial vehicle accident attorney can handle every aspect of your claim for you. Second, commercial vehicle accident cases can quickly become complicated, requiring knowledge of both the legal process and the various state and federal laws and regulations that commercial vehicles are subject to, including commercial driver’s license, driver training, and vehicle maintenance requirements.
An accident investigation must be initiated as soon as possible to recover critical evidence needed to determine liability. An experienced lawyer has the resources to take over that. Other parties in addition to the driver may be responsible, such as the company in charge of the vehicle’s operation, the manufacturer, the vehicle manufacturer, or government entities. The commercial insurance carriers for those parties have teams of adjusters and attorneys that will quickly arrive on the accident scene in an attempt to clean up their mess and avoid responsibility. Hiring a personal injury attorney in Phoenix will protect you from any suggestion that you were partly responsible and ensure that your financial recovery is fought for.
