Trucking accident claims are complicated. The rules and regulations applied to the trucking industry make it difficult to prove fault in an accident.
If you were injured in a trucking accident or lost a loved one in a tractor trailer collision due to the negligence of another, call an experienced truck accident lawyer right now. Don’t wait another minute. The trucking companies certainly won’t.
The steps you take right now are critical in putting your life back together and getting the money you deserve for your pain, suffering and financial losses.
You need to be prepared to protect yourself, your family, your interests and your livelihood. The trucking companies have teams of investigators and attorneys who immediately start working to minimize the company’s liability, and it won’t be long before they call you and offer a settlement. The settlement offer might even sound pretty good.
Stop. Do not settle or sign any documents before speaking with an attorney. You have only one chance to be fully compensated for your injuries and financial losses following an accident. There is no second chance. No matter how good the settlement offer sounds, remember that the trucking company’s insurance company does not work for you. But we will.
Our experienced trucking accident attorneys are committed to getting you the highest possible compensation. Whether you were hit by a semi-truck, an 18-wheeler, a dump truck, fire truck, garbage truck, bus or tractor-trailer, we’ll fight like dogs to win your case.
We work on a contingency fee basis. That means we don’t get paid unless you win. Don’t settle for less than you deserve. You owe it to yourself to speak to an experienced, aggressive, accident attorney who knows the law surrounding trucking accidents.
First thing’s first: make sure that you and your passengers are safe. Call an ambulance immediately if there are any signs of injury. If you can get out of your car unaided, do so, but be sure to stay with your vehicle. Leaving the scene of an accident is potentially a criminal defense. The police should be brought to the scene in the event of a truck accident or an auto accident with property damage, injury or death. Otherwise, exchange complete contact and insurance information with the other driver. Take photos of any damage.
Next, contact your insurance company and send them a copy of the police report. Finally, notify your attorney about the accident. It’s vital to your case and compensation for your suffering that you acquire legal representation as soon as possible.
If you are the victim of an accident involving a commercial semi-truck you can file a claim against the driver, the trucking company, the owner of the cargo the truck was carrying and other entities if applicable. Claims surrounding truck accidents are complicated as the companies are often headquartered outside the state of Virginia. Since fault in a truck accident is not always readily apparent, it is wise to seek legal counsel right away in order to get the money you deserve.
