Why You Need a Medford Truck Accident Lawyer

Trucking companies often avoid liability or minimize what they owe crash victims through strong legal teams and powerful insurance companies. The best way to make your voice heard is to hire a truck accident lawyer. Hiring an attorney can force an insurance company to take you seriously. It can enhance your ability to fight for fair compensation and improve the chances of receiving a positive settlement or verdict.

Types of Truck Accident Claims

It is important to understand your rights after involvement in a serious truck accident in Medford. As a truck accident victim, a few different legal options may be available to you in the pursuit of justice and financial compensation. A lawyer from Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP can review these options in more detail with you during a free consultation.

  • First-party insurance claim. Massachusetts is a no-fault insurance state, meaning if you have minor injuries, your only outlet for recovery might be filing a claim with your own insurance provider. A personal injury protection insurance claim can provide coverage for your medical expenses and vehicle repairs.
  • Vicarious liability lawsuit. If your injuries are serious, investigate the fault of the truck driver or trucking company with help from our lawyers. If the truck driver caused your crash, the truck company could be vicariously liable. Our attorneys may be able to help you file a third-party claim or lawsuit against a trucking company in Massachusetts.
  • Product liability lawsuit. If our investigation finds that a defective product contributed to your truck accident or injuries, we can help you file a product liability claim. This might be the case after a truck rollover, lost cargo load accident, tire blowout, or if your airbags or seat belt failed.

Our truck accident lawyers can conduct an in-depth review of the facts of your case to provide you with more information about possible fault and liability. Then, we can help you bring a claim and fight for full compensation for your damages through all available legal outlets. Learn more about your case byrequesting a free consultation.
