Imagine driving along Pruden Boulevard, North Main Street, or Holland Road and having a giant tractor trailer slam into your vehicle. The impact is so severe that you suffer a serious back injury. In a flash, your life is changed for the worse. Your mind starts to go through a litany of questions – “What do I do next?” “Who will pay for the damage to my vehicle?” “Who should I call?”
These are very common questions and this all needs to be figured out as you try to recuperate from a serious injury and pick up the pieces of your life.
The last thing you probably want to do is haggle with the trucking company’s insurance adjuster. That’s why you should speak to a Suffolk truck accident injury lawyer. Our Suffolk personal injury law firm can take that burden off your shoulders and pursue justice on your behalf.
Hiring a truck wreck injury lawyer in Suffolk who is familiar with the city’s Circuit Court and its judges will allow you to focus on recovery rather than legal details.
During the litigation process, we will aggressively pursue compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If it turns out the at-fault truck driver was drunk, fell asleep at the wheel (which is quite common for truck drivers) or was distracted texting on their phone, we can also pursue punitive damages. This is an additional form of compensation meant to send a signal that the at-fault driver’s behavior will not be tolerated.
You should not attempt to haggle with the trucking company’s insurance adjuster alone. They routinely employ delay tactics in order to get you to accept a low-ball settlement offer or outright deny your claim. You already have enough on your plate.
Our Suffolk injury law firm possesses a track record of securing sizable settlements and jury verdicts in truck accident injury cases. See some examples below:
