What Exactly Will Your Lawyers Do for My Delivery Truck Accident Claim?
Our lawyers can do many things on your behalf.
Collect Critical Pieces of Evidence for Your Case
You need evidence related to your delivery truck accident case in order to prove your claim. Without strong evidence supporting you, you won’t be able to win the settlement you need for your damages. Our delivery truck accident attorneys can help you gather evidence by:
- Talking with witnesses to get their statements and getting expert testimony.
- Retain your police report, medical records, and financial records.
- Organize all of your photographs.
- Ensure that all of the paperwork related to your accident is kept safe and readily available.
The more evidence you have, the better. However, juggling all of your evidence and collecting more can become an overbearing burden. We can handle it all for you while you concentrate on your recovery.
Dealing with the Insurance Company
Insurance companies have various tactics and strategies at their disposal to try and trick you into accepting a settlement way less than what you really deserve. Believe it or not, many people fall for them because of the lack of legal knowledge and experience they have.
Our attorneys won’t let the insurance company take advantage of you after your accident. Just through hiring a lawyer, most insurance companies will be more open to settling since they don’t want things to escalate to a lengthy and costly trial.
Making Sure You Adhere to Deadlines
You only have two years to file a claim for your delivery truck accident in Georgia. Many truck accident victims will let two years pass by, wrongfully assuming they had plenty of time to get things started. We can help you build a strong case for your claim and file everything for you at the right time.

What Kind of Damages Can I Compensate?
You can compensate for all of the damages related to your accident:
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
- Disability or disfigurement
- Vehicle repairs and property damages
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
If your case fits the criteria, we can also help you recover an award for punitive damages. These damages aren’t really like traditional forms of compensation. Instead, they’re a punishment levied onto the at-fault party if they were highly negligent or committing a criminal act at the time of the accident.
Not every delivery truck accident will qualify for punitive damages, but if yours does, we will add that award on top of the settlement we help you win.
