Working to Hold Negligent Parties Accountable
When large trucks and cars collide, the driver and passengers in the car often suffer severe injuries. Accidents that are caused by the actions or negligence of another party—including truck accidents—may result in a personal injury claim. The Staunton truck accident attorneys at Tucker Griffin Barnes can investigate your situation to determine who is responsible. Our firm can fight for fair compensation for your injuries, pain, suffering, and other damages.
Pursuing Compensation for Your Injuries
Injuries sustained in truck accidents often require extensive medical treatment, surgeries, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. Insurance adjusters often attempt to get victims to accept the lowest possible settlement. It is important to make sure that the compensation you receive is sufficient to cover your medical bills, lost wages, future medical care needs, and other expenses. For this reason, you should speak to an attorney before considering any settlement offer.
Depending on the unique circumstances involved in your accident, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:
- Immediate emergency medical treatment
- All medical care related to injuries sustained in the accident
- Ongoing pain management, rehabilitation therapy, and medication schedules
- Medical equipment, such as wheelchairs, and/or the cost of upgrading your home
- Lost income/wages
- Reduced or lost earning capacity/disability
- Pain and suffering, including emotional distress
Our attorneys can evaluate your case and determine the cause of the accident and identify the responsible party, whether it’s the truck driver, the trucking company, or some other party. We fight to help you recover fair compensation for your damages and will handle the legal aspects of your case so you can focus on healing and recovering from your injuries.
Investigating All Sources of Compensation
In addition to the truck driver, there are several other possible sources of compensation in truck accidents, depending on the situation. When a trucking company has policies that jeopardize safety, the company may be legally responsible for damages. Our Staunton truck accident lawyers seek out all possible sources to recover maximum compensation for our clients.
