Tuscaloosa Truck Accident Lawyer

Commercial trucks are the backbone of the Alabama economy. The more of them you see on the roads of Tuscaloosa, the better the economy is performing. Why? These trucks transport food, clothing, and other goods from farmers and manufacturers to retail locations across the state. But these large trucks are also quite dangerous. Because of their height, size, and overall weight, they can quickly be involved in some of the most tragic accidents. The Tuscaloosa truck accident lawyer from the Mezrano Law Firm understands these accidents' seriousness. Truck drivers, trucking companies, and even truck manufacturers can and need to be held accountable for truck accidents, so the victims are not left struggling to pay their medical bills. At the same time, they miss time at work rehabbing their injuries.

Common Causes of Tuscaloosa Truck Accidents

Victims of Tuscaloosa truck accidents can be left with severe injuries and high medical bills that they might not be able to pay, especially if their injuries prevent them from working. The most common causes of Tuscaloosa truck accidents include the following:

  • Inexperienced truck drivers
  • Malfunctioning truck parts
  • Road defects
  • Impaired truck drivers
  • Distracted Truck Driving
  • Oversized loads
  • Hazardous truck loads
  • Aggressive truck drivers

Common Injuries in Tuscaloosa Truck Accidents

Several federal highways intersect in Tuscaloosa, meaning we see a LOT of commercial truck traffic. US 11, US 43, and US 82 all travel through our town, but so do I-201/I-59 and I-359. This is a popular place for big rigs between the roads, the rails, and the Port of Tuscaloosa.

A collision with a commercial truck can lead to catastrophic injuries. Any crash, whether a delivery truck, a flatbed, or a tractor-trailer, is serious because trucks are much larger than passenger vehicles. Some of the more common injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Neck, shoulder, and back injuries
  • Spinal injuries, including paralysis and spinal cord damage
  • Crushing injuries leading to amputation
  • Organ damage
  • Burns, scars, and permanent disfigurement
  • Broken and shattered bones, which may require metal pins and reconstruction

Should I Talk To an Insurance Adjuster?

Many victims of Tuscaloosa truck accidents often ask if an insurance claim will suffice when dealing with medical bills and damage to their vehicles. Our Tuscaloosa truck accident lawyer wants to help you navigate the legal waters of a truck accident when dealing with injuries. Your first instinct might be to call your insurance company immediately after a crash. It’s a good idea to first speak with an accident attorney. Insurance companies want to pay as little as possible when handling claims. Insurance, either your own or the at-fault party’s, might not be sufficient when covering medical bills and other damages caused by a truck accident.

How to Claim Pain and Suffering After a Truck Accident

A collision with a truck is likely to lead to extensive medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. These compensatory damages are called economic damages because they are all expenses that can be added and verified quickly.

Pain and suffering, however, are non-economic damage; so are loss of companionship and emotional trauma. Non-economic damages can be more challenging to quantify, but you are still entitled to compensation. To make your best case, the Tuscaloosa truck accident lawyer of Mezrano Law Firm will review your:

  • Medical bills and records
  • Doctors’ notes
  • Prescription medication receipts
  • Photos of your injuries
  • Journals and recollections of your experiences

We may also interview your loved ones and coworkers to see how the experience has changed you.
