Many people assume they don’t need an attorney after a serious truck accident in West Virginia. If a truck driver clearly caused your crash, the truck driver’s insurance company will compensate you for your accident, right?

That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced West Virginia truck accident lawyer on your side who understands the legal system and knows how to get results. That’s why you need Klie Law Offices working for you.

There are so many reasons why you need an attorney after an accident involving a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, tanker truck, dump truck or another commercial motor vehicle. The reasons why include:

  • Truck driver may deny any wrongdoing
  • Trucking company (especially for out-of-state drivers) can be hard to track down
  • Trucking company often refuses to provide inspection records
  • Trucking company sometimes falsifies records (especially if they hired an inexperienced driver or a driver with a history of reckless driving)
  • Insurance company for trucking company may deny your claim
  • Insurance company may downplay the extent of your losses
  • Both the insurance company and trucking company have teams of attorneys on their side
