Truck Accident Lawyers
There for You When It Matters Most
Truck accidents are less common than car accidents, but the results are typically far more devastating. The weight and size of the vehicle alone may contribute to the severity of the wreck and leave serious injuries and even fatalities in its wake. Tragically, most truck wrecks involve factors that are completely avoidable, including driver negligence, lack of driver training, reckless driving, and tire blowouts or other mechanical problems.
Accidents will happen, but this is no comfort when a serious truck crash renders you or a member of your family with debilitating injuries, costly medical expenses, and lost wages. Fortunately, help is available. Our experienced Virginia Beach truck accident lawyers will fight to obtain the compensation you need to cover your injury-related expenses.
Truck Accident Litigation Requires Special
Knowledge of the Law
Rules governing the trucking industry may complicate matters, along with the particulars of the accident. Many cases involve multiple parties, all of whom will try to pass the blame to one another. Potential defendants in a truck accident case include the truck driver, trucking company, shipping company, parts manufacturers and others.
To complicate matters more, motor carriers and their insurers typically have teams of expensive lawyers whose primary goal is to save the company money by offering accident victims far less than what they deserve.
We Stand Up to Insurance Companies
If the trucking company’s insurance company offers you a settlement, do not accept it. Their objective is to pay as little money to you as possible despite your injuries and the overwhelming medical bills that may accompany them.
Retaining an attorney well-versed in the nuances of truck accident cases is in your best interest. We will examine every aspect of the wreck using industry experts to gather pertinent evidence and ensure the best possible outcome for your case.
You need a strong presence in your corner who will guide you through the legal process and fight for your rights, even when the trucking company tries to deny liability.
