Truck Injury Claims Are More Complex Than Other Types of Auto Accident Cases
Truck accident cases are inherently more challenging due to the effects of serious injuries on your daily life, ability to work, family, and future. Further, the trucking industry is governed by complex state and federal laws and regulations, which can be difficult to navigate without appropriate knowledge or guidance. Additionally, multiple parties may share responsibility for causing the accident. Although this provides several avenues to obtain compensation, it complicates the legal process.
We know you may feel overwhelmed, but do not worry. If you find the prospect of fighting a complex legal battle to be daunting, we will lift this burden from your shoulders by managing every aspect of your case. We want you to focus on your recovery and being with your family at this difficult time.
Here are a few of the tasks our personal injury team can take off of your hands:
- Examining every aspect of the accident to gather and preserve evidence before it is lost, destroyed, or forgotten
- Compiling the evidence to identify liable parties, assess the full extent of your physical, emotional, and financial damages, and prove your right to compensation
- Issuing a demand for compensation with the defendant’s insurance company on your behalf
- Leading settlement negotiations with the defendant, and working tirelessly for the best outcome for you and your family
- Taking your case to trial when necessary, and filing all paperwork in time, per G.S. § 1-52
Starting your claim with us is simple. We review your situation for free and guide your next steps from there. To make things easier financially, we provide our legal services on a contingency fee arrangement, so there are no upfront fees. You only pay us after we successfully resolve your case with an insurance settlement or court verdict.
When You Are Hurting, We Will Fight for You as We Would for Our Own Families
Often referred to as semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, big rigs, or 18-wheelers, these huge vehicles can be up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, compared to the average 4,000 pounds of most passenger cars. As such, a truck accident can cause devastating injuries requiring extensive medical treatments and surgeries, including:
- Severe cuts and lacerations
- Neck and spinal injuries
- Head trauma
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage
- Loss of limbs
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
Liability and Negligence in Truck Accident Cases
In truck accident cases, several parties could share responsibility for causing or contributing to the collision, including:
- Truck drivers
- Trucking companies
- Truck owners
- Truck or part manufacturers
- Cargo loaders
- Maintenance companies
- Government entities
Insurance companies representing the at-fault party often heavily defend against larger-scale injury cases to reduce their financial risk. You deserve an equally strong advocate with the experience, resources, and knowledge to protect your health, well-being, family, and future.
With over 80 years of combined legal experience and a history of success managing complex personal injury cases, Whitley Law Firm can fight for your best interests.
Our Truck Injury Lawyers Will Seek the Justice and Compensation You Deserve
In cases involving serious injuries, it can be difficult to assess the level of compensation you will need for your current and ongoing care, lost income, and other related losses. Further, the mental anguish, anxiety, PTSD, and depression are difficult to assign a financial value, given their deeply subjective nature. We use your testimony and your medical records to estimate an amount that will help to lessen your personal suffering.
We understand how difficult it is to convey how the accident has affected your life, so we take the time to guide you through this challenging process. By understanding your situation in detail, we can accurately assess your financial damages before leading settlement negotiations. Most of the time, we seek compensation for damages like:
- Your medical bills, treatment, and rehabilitation costs
- The projected costs of your ongoing medical care
- Lost wages and compensation if your injuries affect your income in the future
- Emotional distress, such as PTSD or anxiety
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement
- Impaired enjoyment of life
- The cost of home or vehicle adaptations to accommodate your injuries
- Property damage or loss
- Wrongful death (if the accident caused the loss of a loved one)
We want you to feel confident in our abilities and comfortable during the legal process. Therefore, our lawyers will always check in with regular case updates, or you can make as many appointments with our team as you need. You will also be provided with your lawyer’s direct contact details for responsive legal care when you need to get in touch.
