Reduce Trucking Accident Fallout and Improve Outcomes With An Attorney

Many truck drivers are still working during the COVID-19 crisis. They are helping to keep products like toilet paper and food on store shelves. Meanwhile, lots of Americans are urged to stay home to stay safe. Still, there are essential workers on the roadways where there are big rigs passing by. All it takes is for one truck operator to become lax in their safe driving practices for another party's life to be changed forever.

Because trucks are much larger and heavier than conventional passenger vehicles, the devastating outcome of death often enters the picture for victims. On other occasions, they are able to walk away from the events with their lives intact. However, many times, they are left with significant injuries that require medical attention, and these include:

• Fractures And Broken Bones
• Paralysis
• Burns
• Traumatic Brain Injury

This article is going to focus primarily on injuries and not wrongful death. Between surgeries, hospital stays, medications, and follow-up doctor appointments, recovery expenses can quickly get out of hand. Plus, the injured party may have to take quite a bit of time off work while they are recovering. That means they probably won't have a steady paycheck to cash or deposit in the bank. Hence, they feel as though they are stuck between a rock and a hard place financially. Fortunately, an accident attorney might be able to help.

The Benefits Of Hiring A Lawyer After A Crash With A Commercial Truck


If a truck driver's negligence causes an accident with injuries, the victim could potentially recover compensation from the truck company for their wounds. What is considered negligent? Driving drowsy, distracted, or drunk/high is considered neglectful. The plaintiff must prove that the defendant's reckless acts led to the collision. That is where having a reputable attorney by your side becomes an advantage. Your attorney can gather evidence to build a strong case that assigns fault. Some of the information and documents they may collect include police reports, black box data, witness statements, and cell phone records.

Legal representation can prevent the organization's legal team from taking advantage of you as well. These attorneys do not have the injured party's best interests in mind. Rather, their primary concern is preventing their client from shelling out a substantial sum. The individuals will attempt to twist and distort the truth, making it look like the plaintiff caused the accident. These actions tend to leave victims feeling as if they are on trial. However, with a top-notch lawyer in your corner to fight on your behalf, you can avoid such situations.

Even when the attorneys representing these companies know that they are going to lose, they still try to get one over on the injured. For instance, they could offer a low-ball settlement from the get-go. If the victim doesn't know any better, they may end up accepting the payment, only to find out later on that it does not fully cover their out-of-pocket costs. On other occasions, the lawyers make everything seem as if it is crawling at a snail's pace, which results in the plaintiff settling for a smaller than warranted monetary sum. So don't delay any longer. Instead, contact us to get the representation and compensation that you deserve.


 

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
