What To Do After You’ve Been Involved In A Truck Accident
What to Do to Ensure Your Safety and Security
Most of the time, truck drivers are well-trained, cautious, precise, and good stewards of highway and road safety. And that’s good, because we rely on truck drivers and their services to keep Iowa, and the nation as a whole, running smoothly and efficiently. Unfortunately, the great quantity of trucks of all shapes and sizes on the road mean that they won’t all safely make it to their destination.
Due to the size and mass of many trucks, truck accidents don’t only slow down traffic, but put motorists and pedestrians in danger of injury and sometimes death. With tons of cargo in tow, it’s easy to see how trucks create a hazard to you, especially if they have a negligent driver behind the wheel. If you or a loved one is involved in a personal injury or wrongful death case involving a truck accident in Iowa, you need an experienced and intelligent lawyer to represent your best interests, and help you navigate your difficult situation. Attorney Pat Carpenter has been serving residents of Des Moines and beyond for decades, and has specific expertise in truck accidents and their aftermath.
If you are involved in a truck accident, you might be confused about where the burden of responsibility lies. Is it your fault? The truck driver’s fault? What about the truck driver’s employer? It’s easy to see how a truck accident can quickly become a complex and complicated legal process – one that you should not try to take on alone. Whether the accident was due to driver error or vehicle malfunction – or even if you think it was purely accidental – it behooves you to seek proper legal counsel to fully understand your role in the accident, and the steps you should take.
