Why Hire a Utah Truck Accident Lawyer from Strong Law After a Truck Crash?
Your focus should be on recovering from your injuries. Injuries received in a truck accident are often serious ones, such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries and paralysis. These are often life-altering injuries that require months, even years, of recovery. Some injuries prevent people from returning to work or doing their usual type of work.
The truck accident lawyer that you speak to when you come to Strong Law for your free consultation understands your frustration and the impact your devastating injuries have had on your life.
Working with our Utah truck accident lawyers allows you to participate in your treatment or therapy and focus on your recovery, not on dealing with insurance companies or the at-fault party.
Strong Law truck accident lawyers focus on considering all types of losses that you have or may face in the future because of a truck crash. Do not take a quick settlement from the insurance company of the other party. You may be selling yourself short if you do so. Insurance companies and trucking companies want to pay the least possible amount when they are liable for a truck crash.

How We Can Help
Do not think that you can pursue compensation for your injuries on your own after a truck crash and get the best outcome. Statistics show that 95% of personal injury lawsuits result in a settlement without the case going to trial.
A professional, experienced truck accident lawyer at Strong Law knows how to go after the guilty parties and hold them accountable when negotiating a settlement.
The Utah truck accident lawyers at Strong Law will explain the role of negligence to you, and how it applies to seeking compensation. When we look at the actions or fault of the truck driver, we look at circumstances where we can assign fault, which include:
- Driving under the influence
- Driving too fast for weather conditions
- Distracted driving
- Fatigue on the part of the truck driver
- Exceeding allowable hours of driving or exceeding driving hours without breaks.
Trucking companies that push drivers to continue driving, even when they are tired or have driven too many hours, can be held liable after a truck accident. Trucking manufacturers or parts companies can be held liable if they manufacture or install defective parts on the truck. Your truck accident attorneys know how to research these things and discuss your case more in depth.
Negligence Is Often a Primary Factor in Truck Accidents
Do you believe that the truck accident that you or your deceased loved one was involved in was caused by negligence? The negligence of truck drivers and trucking companies is often a primary factor in truck accidents in Utah.
Negligent truck drivers are not the only at-fault party in many truck accidents. Your Utah truck accident attorneys may be able to pursue a case against the trucking company that hired the driver or the truck owner. You are not alone if you were involved in a truck accident in the Utah area.

When Utah State provided the Freight Transportation Overview section in its Transportation Resource Manual, it indicated that Utah relied on multiple modes of transportation to move the more than $508 billion in domestic freight through the state in 2015. The primary mode of transportation was by truck, with around 60% of all domestic freight being moved by truck. The report also revealed that the highest volume of trucks was near Utah, with nearly 16,000 trucks traveling in and around the Utah area every day. The sheer number of trucks and their size and weight on the road may increase the likelihood of truck crashes.
Reaching out to Utah truck accident lawyers at Strong Law who know how to aggressively pursue justice for their clients is the ideal way to receive compensation for your injuries and other losses.

Questions Clients Frequently Ask Our Truck Accident Attorneys After a Truck Accident
People often have questions after being involved in a truck accident caused by negligence.
Why should I file a claim after a truck accident?
Trucking companies or their insurance companies often contact truck accident victims soon after an accident and offer an immediate settlement. It may look good, because you have lost wages and medical expenses, but the settlement is likely to be far less than your deserved compensation. Contact the Utah truck accident lawyers at Strong Law right away.
What should I do when the trucking company or their insurance company contacts me?
Do not discuss details of the truck accident with the trucking company, their insurance company, or any attorneys except for your own truck accident lawyer at Strong Law. Refer any of these parties to your truck accident attorneys.
What is the cause of most truck accidents?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) indicates that drivers are the leading cause of truck accidents. The report found that drivers were responsible 87% of the time, when considering critical reasons for truck accidents. Critical reasons include things like decision-making, non-performance, performance and recognition. Critical events leading to a truck crash can include the driver traveling out of their own lane or loss of control because of things like driving too fast for conditions, cargo shift or vehicle systems failure.
Should I take an immediate settlement?
Do not take an immediate settlement offer from the trucking company or from their insurance company. Insurance companies know that offering what seems like a large amount of money to an injury victim is likely to appeal to the victim. The amount offered is often far less than the injury victim deserves for their current and future losses. It is only when you contact a truck accident lawyer that you can feel confident you are getting the full compensation you deserve for your losses.
