What You Need to Know About Pursuing a Semi-Truck Accident Claim
Semi-truck accidents can cause devastating, catastrophic injury and death.

Of all the people killed in those accidents, some 73% of them were occupants in the other vehicle. If you or a loved one suffered serious injuries in a truck accident, trust your case to the McKelvey Law Firm to obtain representation by a compassionate, but aggressive Albuquerque truck accident attorney.
How an Albuquerque Truck Accident Attorney Will Work to Investigate Your Claim
Should the McKelvey Law Firm agree to take your case, it will investigate all aspects of your potential claim. Most accident cases follow a theory of negligence. As such, to successfully pursue one, your Albuquerque truck accident attorney will first work to determine who bears legal responsibility for your injuries. To do so, your attorney will compile information about the accident such as photographs, police reports, witness interviews, and other facts necessary to analyze possible claims. That information will then be carefully reviewed and you will be advised as to who you can pursue possible claims against, whether it be the truck driver, truck owner, and/or employer.
Understanding What to Expect From An Insurance Company
In addition to establishing who may be legally at fault for the accident, your attorney knows the insurance company will require a multitude of documents and witness statements to support a claim based on the injury you suffered. This can be a cumbersome, frustrating process and you may often feel like the insurance adjuster is giving you the run around and asking for the same information over and over again.
The McKelvey Law Firm can help. Your Albuquerque truck accident attorney can help anticipate the adjuster’s needs before he does. Your attorney can work with your doctors, other healthcare providers, or your employer to organize bills, receipts, statements and other documents you need to support your claim. You don’t have to go it alone.
