Standing Up For Those Injured In Trucking Accidents
Someone injured in a truck accident often has greater recovery challenges than someone injured in a typical car accident because of the size, weight and momentum that big rigs and other trucks have, by nature. An 18-wheeler is almost like a building on wheels. When it crashes with cars or other smaller vehicles, the occupants of the other vehicles are typically the ones who suffer the most serious injuries.
At the same time, greater pockets of money may be available to compensate the injured after a truck accident. This is so because of laws requiring high levels of insurance for commercial vehicles. However, trucking companies also aggressively defend themselves after crashes occur. Many have their own on-staff attorneys or on-call lawyers who begin investigating for defense right away.
To level the playing field after a truck accident, an injured person and/or close family members should have legal representation as soon as possible. When Blincow Griffin Law represents you after a truck accident, you can count on a zealous approach without delay. With previous experience at large law firms, our semi-truck accident lawyers are equipped to handle your case in a skillful and professional manner, with a focus on maximizing the compensation you need and deserve to cover:
- Medical care, including emergency care, hospitalization, surgery, ongoing care, therapy and rehabilitation
- Loss of income and earning potential over time as a result of serious injuries
- Pain and suffering, including loss of enjoyment of life and the injured person’s spouse’s unique losses, as well
- Funeral and burial costs after a fatal accident, even if the injury-induced death occurs sometime later
Sophisticated Accident Cases Require Experience
In addition to a trucking company’s vigorous defense, there may be multiple defendants to take on, each with its own insurer. The truck driver, the dispatching company, the loading company, the owner of the big rig and/or inspectors or maintenance companies may all weigh in. Each may share some liability and each will try to limit exposure to financial responsibility. Multiple defendants may mean a case takes longer than usual to resolve. When this happens to our clients, we fight even harder to maximize our clients’ ultimate recovery. When it comes to helping people recover after a commercial vehicle injury, our track record speaks for itself.
