Portland Truck Accident Lawyer

Being in an accident is never a pleasant experience. Medical bills alone, not to mention car repairs can be overwhelming. Unfortunately being the victim of a truck accident can have much broader ramifications. Large trucks and semis have a higher center of gravity and often carry very heavy loads. Sometimes those loads can shift or maybe they were improperly loaded to begin with. In some cases, driving conditions or visibility was poor. Perhaps the truck driver was distracted or even cut off by another driver. Any of those circumstances put together can result in a terrible and possibly fatal accident.

Truck accidents also tend to be more legally complicated than car accidents. It is essential to contact a lawyer as soon as possible because of short deadlines to preserve and retrieve evidence for your case. It is vital to contact a knowledgeable legal professional at Squires Law Office, P.C. right away. Regardless of what caused the accident, whether negligence was involved or not, our experienced truck accident attorneys will get to work preserving and gathering the vital evidence needed to protect your rights and support your claim.

Additionally, if negligence played a role in the truck accident, it is essential that all evidence be preserved in order to get a full truck accident investigation and reconstruction done. Getting vehicle repairs done, even speaking with an insurance agent could adversely affect the outcome of your case. If a death occurred as a result of the truck accident, all evidence will become essential to a wrongful death claim. So don't delay in contacting a personal injury attorney from our firm today. We are here to give you the expert representation you deserve.
