After a truck accident, do I really need a lawyer?


Motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunate fact of life, and nearly everyone who regularly drives will be involved in at least one at some point. When these accidents involve tractor-trailers, the victims often suffer serious and life-threatening injuries. The last thing someone who has been injured in a truck accident should have to worry about is making sure that the trucking company’s insurance will pay for damages.

At Perrault Law Group, we are experienced in dealing with truck accidents that occur in Massachusetts as well as those that occur in other states but involve Massachusetts residents. When liability comes into question, it often means that everything about the accident needs to be reevaluated. We can get access to witness statements, police reports and even the trucking logs and GPS data so that our legal team can review all of the evidence in your case.

Truck accidents can be caused by many factors. Sometimes it’s a distracted or tired driver. In other cases, the truck driver may have been going too fast for road or weather conditions. It’s also possible that an accident is the result of a malfunction with the truck itself. If the crash is caused by an inexperienced driver, the trucking company may be able to be held liable for not ensuring adequate training.

Trucking companies and their insurance providers have lawyers to represent them in civil litigation, and you should too. An attorney can help you navigate the court process, understand the different possible outcomes and determine whether a trial or settlement, if proposed, is in your best interests.
