If your vehicle was damaged or possibly totaled in the 18 wheeler accident, it was probably towed to a storage yard and is incurring daily storage fees. The trucking company may take days or even weeks to complete their investigation and the storage fees can climb very quickly into hundreds of dollars.
You may consider contacting the storage yard immediately to determine what fees you may be incurring and also notify your own insurance company about the accident. If you do not have full coverage insurance, you may want to make plans to remove the vehicle as there is no guarantee the trucking company will pay for it if they believe the 18 wheeler wreck was your fault.
Our fees are contingent which means we are not paid unless there is a recovery. In other words, you will not have to pay out-of-pocket for an attorney. You may contact an 18 wheeler accident attorney for a free consultation at (877)-892-2797
