Kansas highways see many different trucking companies. Some are from in state such as National Carriers or Great Plains Trucking, others drive long hours from states far away. Most truckers are responsible, but others may be running on little sleep, trying to meet a deadline or have a badly maintained truck. Regardless of the circumstance, thousands of serious accidents involving trucks happen every year. Lives are changed and the person responsible isn’t always held accountable.
Who’s responsible for my injuries?
Although your car insurance may cover your injuries and medical costs to a certain limit, it doesn’t take long for medical bills to exceed that limit. When this happens, the trucker’s insurance company is responsible to pay the remaining bills if the trucker was at fault.
This doesn’t mean they will.
So here’s what you should remember:
1. Never sign any papers until you’ve spoken to your attorney.
2. Never let the insurance company record you. They will use the term “for accuracy purposes,” but can use it against you later in Court.
3. You should contact a Wichita personal injury lawyer immediately for a free consultation for advice on your trucking accident case.
