Knowledgeable semi-truck collision attorney aids victims across the state
Whether you were hurt due to a jackknifed tractor-trailer, a rear-end collision, an underride or some other type of crash, an attorney with a long track record of handling Utah car accident litigation can outline your legal options. In all parts of the state, David Morgan delivers knowledgeable advice on each aspect of claims, including:
- Accident causes — Various factors can contribute to a truck accident, and often there is more than one cause. We look beyond what’s in the police report to pinpoint whether a driver was speeding, drowsy, or impaired by alcohol or drugs. Mr. Morgan’s familiarity with truck operation and maintenance helps to identify possible claims that others miss. If a dispute exists as to what triggered the crash, we have the background and resources to get to the truth.
- No-fault law and exceptions — As a “no-fault” auto insurance state, Utah requires drivers to maintain at least $3,000 of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage, which covers some of their own medical costs associated with vehicle accidents regardless of who was to blame. Compensation for pain and suffering is not provided under these policies, but in situations where the medical expenses exceed $3,000 or where the victim has suffered a disfiguring or disabling injury, a lawsuit that includes noneconomic damages can be filed against the at-fault driver.
- Liability — Determining who should pay for the harm resulting from a truck accident can be a complex process. Without an experienced injury lawyer by your side, you might not obtain the full reimbursement that you are entitled to. Even situations that were caused by the truck driver’s error could also implicate the company that hired him or her if the training or review process was inadequate. If poor roads, defective parts or other hazards contributed to the accident, we will pursue justice against parties responsible for instances of negligence as well.
- Damages — Instead of accepting a quick settlement offer from an insurance company or defendant, you might benefit by gaining an informed perspective from a seasoned legal advocate. We’ll assess how much you might recover in medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs and other types of damages available under Utah law.
There’s no reason to wait to get the comprehensive legal support you deserve. Mr. Morgan can assess your options in a free phone consultation, and you don’t have to pay attorney fees until your case is settled or won.
