Do You Need a Lawyer If You Were Hit By A USPS* Truck?

Car crashes with a mail truck are far more common on U.S. highways than people think, despite the fact that you may associate Mail drivers with safe driving practices. If you have been involved in a car crash with a mail truck and the accident wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. This can help you cover the financial hardship caused to you as a result of the accident.

Personal injury claims are typically available in any state to those who have been seriously injured in an auto accident which involved a mail truck. The compensation you claim should pay for your medical bills and any damage to your car. It’s never easy securing the compensation you deserve, but a lawyer can pave the way to win a successful personal injury claim on your behalf.

Damages You May Receive After a Car Crash With a Mail Truck

How much the damages will come to after your crash with a mail truck will typically depend on the extent of the damage to your car and how seriously you were injured. If it was a rear end collision, the complete rear of your car may have been severely damaged so much that any injuries to you and your passengers may not only be serious but life changing too. The repair bill for your auto should be covered by a personal injury claim, even if a complete new paint job is required after the damage has been repaired.

Many accidents with larger vehicles like a mail truck cause very serious injuries. This could be a financial burden, particularly if you have to pay medical bills to be treated for injuries like those to the spine or the brain. Even more minor injuries like whiplash require long recovery times. Loss of wages while recovering from an injury should be included in a personal injury claim.

Calculating damages can be complicated and the insurer handling your claim may resist paying until your claim is foolproof. This is where a PI lawyer can step in and ensure the paperwork is completed correctly and the evidence to support your PI claim is all in order. A personal injury lawyer’s experience will help to secure the personal injury compensation you deserve in an accident with a truck that wasn’t your fault.

Why Consider a Lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer can ensure there is sufficient evidence available to prove that your accident with a mail truck was not your fault, whether it was a side swipe from poor judgment, a rear end accident due to distracted driving by the driver, or simply due to the mail driver losing control because he or she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident.

Personal injury lawyers are good at determining who was at fault in an auto accident with a mail truck. Also, when you work with a lawyer you’ll have the help you need to calculate your damages and prepare the paperwork to present to the relevant insurance company.
