More than 150,000 drivers are injured or killed each year in accidents involving trucks. Trucks are two times more likely to be involved in traffic accidents than other vehicles. If a big truck hits you, you are over five times more likely to be killed than the truck driver. Driver fatigue accounts for more than 40 percent of all truck accidents.
Because of these statistics, we believe that truckers, their companies, and the insurance companies that cover them need to be held accountable.
When you are in an accident with a big truck, it is important to hire the most experienced lawyers, so that you can maximize your damages and, hold the other parties accountable.
WE are ready and willing to represent you if you have been injured in an accident with a truck, regardless of the cause of the accident:
In our initial interview, we will talk with you about what happened. We will help you with your property damage claim for no fee. We can refer you to a doctor who is conveniently located, and who can treat your specific type of injury.
If your injury causes you to lose income, we will pursue that claim with your injury claim. When your claim is ready, we will send your case to the insurance company that insures the at-fault driver. If you are not satisfied with your offer, we will file suit and go to court. Most claims are settled without going to court. But, we will do whatever it takes to get you a fair and complete resolution of your claim.
Unlike other firms that hand off their clients to inexperienced lawyers, I will work on your case, throughout the entire process.
