        Steps to take after an injury

        First, it’s very important to make sure you’ve documented exactly what happened with your accident or injury. The date, the time, the names and addresses of those involved, as well as details of what happened are critical components that you’ll need as you try to work through the problems you’re having. If you’ve been in a car accident, we already have a checklist you can use. You can see the checklist at our Car Accident Checklist page.

        Secondly, you really should contact an Injury Attorney in Buffalo as soon as possible….because the other party’s Insurance Company is probably already working behind the scenes…and preparing to defend its client.

        Contacting an accident attorney is really very simple – and for your case, it’s a Free Consultation. I’ll provide the accident and injury help you need by spending time reviewing the facts with you to be able to tell you what possible remedies you have and make suggestions on how to proceed.

        Semi Truck accidents, which involve large, over-the-road tractor trailers, are generally the most deadly we have seen.  The statistics are terrifying:

        • Every year, 500,000 large trucks, or “semis,” are involved in accidents on our roads.
        • Of these, 5,000 involve fatalities.

        In the United States, 1 out of every 8 people killed in a traffic accident that involves a truck or semi….and it’s usually the driver or passengers of the vehicles struck by the trucks – not the semi truck drivers themselves.

        Truck drivers repeatedly break federal laws by driving:

        • Without rest
        • In excess of the amount of hours they are allowed to drive
        • Trucks that are oversized
        • With a heavy load
        • Improper maintenance or required maintenance not performed
        • eyesight that prevents them from driving at night

        There are three reasons why truck accidents are so dangerous:

        • The size of the rig
        • The speed
        • Driver fatigue

        A fully loaded, tractor trailer is a giant piece of machinery. When you put something like that on the road at speeds of 60 miles an hour or more, anything that might get in its way will be demolished within seconds. And if you throw in the growing problem of driver fatigue – those in passenger cars face a very real threat.

        Truck drivers are constantly under pressure to move cargo, causing them to sometimes work a 16-hour day.
        A recent study shows that 20 percent of long-haul truck drivers admitted to falling asleep at the wheel. It’s no wonder that people are killed when one-in-five drivers admits to falling asleep, leaving these giants with no one at the wheel.

        When someone comes in to our offices to talk about a tractor trailer accident, our Buffalo Truck Accident Lawyers will address three major topics:

        • Liability – who is responsible
        • The injuries
        • And Insurance

        Liability means who caused the accident. It is the first issue addressed in any truck – auto collision case.

        The second issue addressed is injury. Is the person seeking compensation injured in any way?

        And third, does the individual or individuals that caused the accident have insurance? Does the party that was innocent have uninsured motorist insurance coverage to pay for the damages that were caused by the accident?

        It’s important to note that in every successful case there are three important factors that make it so – solid liability or proof, injuries that were caused by the negligent party, and insurance to compensate for damages done. In accident law, two out of three usually isn’t enough.  At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, PC our Accident Lawyers handle the toughest truck accidents cases.
