Legal Representation in Trucking Accident & Injury Claims
Trucking accidents often lead to very serious injuries, as well as fatalities. They can frequently involve multiple vehicles and victims. These cases should be handled by a highly qualified firm that has experience in difficult injury cases, as the process involved in fighting for justice with a commercial insurance company can be more difficult than a normal car accident claim. Commercial insurance companies usually send out their own accident investigation teams when serious injuries or fatalities have taken place. These are commercial operations that answer to stockholders and boards of directors – they are not representing you, your family or protecting your interests. Unfortunately, they will pay you as little as they can. It is absolutely imperative that you have representation to protect your rights.
Our firm represents victims of trucking accidents and families of those who have lost their lives in one of these dangerous and devastating collisions. We are well versed in establishing negligence and investigations that could be necessary to find the causes of trucking accidents. The underlying situation that led to the accident could be a variety of factors, including the following:
- Aggressive driving
- Failure to maintain
- Texting drivers
- Inexperienced drivers
- Tire blowout
- Tired drivers
- Unsecure cargo
- Unsafe lane changes.
It is important that the cause of the accident is investigated as this can be a main contributing factor in determining who is at fault. Once fault is established showing that the other party was ultimately responsible for injuries that have been suffered may lead to the retention of compensation. Our firm seeks the full amount, taking into account the current and future influence that an injury can have. We can represent victims in a wide range of injury or death cases, including delivery truck accidents, cases involving driver disqualification, employer negligence and drunk driving truck accidents which are an all too common occurrence. We offer our services in injury claims in freeway accidents as well as those that take place on city streets or roads.
