Driving an 18-wheeler is not the same as driving your standard car or truck, and if you've ever witnessed an accident involving an 18-wheeler, you know it can be quite different from other types of traffic accidents. David Greene from Greene and Phillips Law Firm has handled a number of cases involving 18-wheeler accidents. He says 18-wheeler accidents are very different than other accidents because the trucks are so heavy so the damage can be tremendous and catastrophic.
If you are involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, David Greene says you should call 911 and see medical attention before anything else. You'll also need to file a police report. He says if possible, take photos of the scene and look for witnesses.
He says contacting a personal injury lawyer may help your case because he or she should have the experience to find ways to attain information you may not know how to get. The company who owns the 18-wheeler will be investigating the scene trying to prove it's not their fault. He says that's why the victim needs someone looking out for their best interest.
When the attorneys at Greene and Phillips are handling cases involving 18-wheelers, they send investigators to the scene of the accident. Accident reconstruction experts create graphs of scene to determine the speed of both vehicles, how the accident happened, and who was at fault. Attorneys should be able to find information that can add value to your case. David Greene says most of the time cases such as this do not go to trial.
The lawyers at Greene and Phillips have been handling cases involving 18-wheeler accidents since the late 90's, and have won settlements ranging from $100,000 to millions of dollars. So if you're involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler and you need some guidance, you can get it with a call to Greene and Phillips.
