Larger Vehicles Mean More Severe Injuries

Experienced Representation is Crucial
It is incredibly likely that the trucking company in question has a lot more experience navigating the aftermath of large auto accidents than you do. Most companies have a protocol they immediately launch into after an accident in order to minimize evidence and reduce the validity of your claim. Their insurance companies are not going to be any more eager to help you or fight for your fair compensation.
When you file a claim or enter into litigation with an established trucking company with access to vast resources, it is incredibly helpful to have a Palm Springs truck accident attorney to provide legal counsel, support, and assistance. Christopher has over two decades of experience facing larger scale defendants and is relentless in his quest to secure compensation for his clients.
