Hire An Attorney After A Truck Accident For These Reasons

More and more tractor-trailers are driving on the U.S. roadways each year, including right here in Florida. So much so, that at times, it can feel like a person can't go anywhere without seeing a big-rig. Of course, there is not necessarily wrong with trucks being everywhere. That just means that the economy is strong, and the drivers are delivering goods to stores, restaurants, gas stations, and more. In doing so, they ensure that products are readily available for consumers to purchase.

Still, though, if a tractor-trailer operator makes a mistake behind the wheel, devastating consequences are sure to follow. For example, if the driver is texting on his or her cellphone, they may fail to see the cars in front of them coming to a screeching halt. In turn, the truck can plow into the back of a passenger vehicle and cause a chain reaction, leading to a multi-car pile up. Then again, perhaps the trailer was loaded unevenly, and the big-rig operator takes a curve too fast. In such cases, a rollover could occur, landing the truck and trailer on a much smaller vehicle.

Heck, even drowsy driving can be a problem. After all, eighteen-wheeler drivers spend countless hours on the open road. If he or she drifts off to sleep, the truck could become involved in a side-swipe, rear-end, or head-on collision. Nothing good can come from any of these scenarios. Sure, the driver of the rig may sustain injuries, but more often than not, it is those in passenger vehicles that suffer the most. Sometimes, they lose their lives in such crashes. Then, on other occasions, the car, truck, or SUV occupants obtain ailments such as...

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

Persons Might Be Able To Recover Compensation From The Trucking Company For Their Damages

It is usually not a good idea to take on these organizations alone. The companies regularly have lawyers on standby. They will attempt to use every trick in the book to prevent their clients from having to pay out a significant settlement. For starters, it is not uncommon for the representatives to offer less than fair compensation amounts in the beginning. If the victim accepts the low ball figure, he or she might find out that the payment won't cover all of their expenses.

The legal team may even try to make it look like the accident was the victim's fault. When successful, the plaintiff doesn't receive any money at all. Additionally, the attorneys will drag their feet and bring the process to what feels like a standstill. In taking this measure, they hope that the individual will start running out of funds, and eventually, have to settle for a minimal compensation amount.

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.
