Covenant Logistics Truck Accidents

Our lawyers can fight for your rights if you’ve been injured

Trucks operated by Covenant Logistics carry a wide range of cargo on U.S. roads every day. Large commercial trucks are a common sight on highways and city streets. But it only takes one act of negligence to cause a truck accident that leave people seriously hurt or even killed. It takes experienced legal representation to hold negligent parties accountable.

The experienced truck accident attorneys at Fried Goldberg LLC understand the impact a crash can have on victims and their families. There are physical, emotional, and financial effects. But recovering financial compensation is difficult and insurance companies will try to minimize compensation. Our firm helps the injured fight back.

What to do after an accident with a Covenant Logistics truck

Here are some steps you can take:

  • Call the police – Members of law enforcement will make sure everyone is safe. They will also conduct an investigation at the scene. Their initial findings and other important facts will be available in the official accident report.
  • Seek medical attention – Do this even if you seem to feel fine. Some injuries have delayed symptoms and you could be putting your health at risk by refusing an examination. Allow EMTs to examine you or go to the ER.
  • Document the accident – Take photos of the accident from different angles and distances. Also get some shots of road conditions and nearby landmarks.
  • Get some information – Ask the truck driver for their name, contact information, and their employer. Don’t talk about who was at fault. Also get names and contact information for any witnesses.
  • Get legal advice – Whether or not you decide to take legal action, it’s important to understand your rights.

Soon after the accident, you may be contacted a representative of Covenant Logistics or their insurance company. Don’t answer any questions or agree to give a statement. Talk to a lawyer first.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit against Covenant Logistics?

Every state has a statute of limitations that sets a deadline for taking legal action after a truck accident. In Georgia, that deadline is two years from the date of the crash. But no matter where the accident happened, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as you can. It can take time to investigate an accident and build a strong case. And evidence can be lost or destroyed if you wait too long.

Should I accept a settlement after a Covenant Logistics truck accident?

You may be contacted by an insurance company with a settlement offer not long after your accident. However, their offer will fall far short of covering all of the damages you suffered and may not take into account future medical expenses. That’s why it’s important to get legal advice before accepting any settlement offer. An experienced attorney can often negotiate a more favorable settlement.
