A Mobile Cargo Truck Collision Attorney will Strive to Secure Compensation for You
When our attorneys represent victims of cargo truck collisions, we develop a case to support an insurance claim and seek compensation based on what happened to our client. We need to prove the cargo truck driver caused the accident and your injuries.
We can use the evidence we gathered to prove to the insurance company that their policyholder is liable and that our client suffered injuries and losses that included:
- Medical assessment and initial treatment
- Emergency transportation to the hospital
- Hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation
- Inpatient and outpatient care
- Lost wages and other income
- Property damages, including car replacement
- Rental car costs
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering
We may also be able to secure money damages for future expenses, such as:
- Continued medical treatment for injuries
- Ongoing care expenses
- Diminished earning capacity

Options for Seeking Compensation Depend on Your Case Details
At the Morris Bart law firm, we often negotiate insurance settlement agreements for our clients without filing a lawsuit. It may be possible for you to secure a payment based on your damages outside of court, too. We may be able to help.
However, some circumstances call for suing the liable parties in a case. These circumstances could include:
- The insurer will not accept responsibility
- The carrier refuses to offer a fair and just settlement
- You are running out of time to take legal action
There are deadlines on how long you have to sue in this type of crash. Per Ala. Code § 6-2-38, most victims generally have two years to file a lawsuit based on the state’s personal injury or wrongful death laws. Exceptions that significantly reduce this time exist, though.
Cargo Truck Collision Claims Are Often Complex, But Our Team May Be Able to Help
A lawyer from our team may be able to help determine liability and take legal action for you after a cargo truck crash. These accidents can involve many types of trucks, such as:
- Military vehicles
- Delivery vans
- Commercial delivery vehicles
- Rented box trucks
The identity of the truck owner and their relationship to the driver can alter the liable parties in a cargo truck collision. However, our team helps our clients sort this out. We use evidence that points to what happened to cause the accident and other information to identify the liable parties.
In some cases, we may be able to sue the truck owner or the employer of the driver instead of just the driver. This vicarious liability is possible because of St. Louis-San Francisco Ry. Co. v. Robbins, a personal injury case from 1929.
We can also help clients whose family members died as a result of these accidents. Under Ala. Code § 6-5-410, we may be able to recover wrongful death damages for the accident victim’s estate.
