Your Legal Rights
You have the right to talk to a lawyer before talking to an insurance adjuster.
You need to be careful, even when it seems very clear that the truck driver caused the wreck. Trucking companies respond immediately and aggressively to crashes. We strongly suggest you get your own attorney to protect you and your family.
