Driving while intoxicated or impaired
Distracted or drowsy driving
Too much cargo on board
Failure to maintain the vehicle properly
Becoming involved in a commercial vehicle accident as a result of another driver’s reckless actions, negligence, inexperience, or distraction behind the wheel should not destroy you financially. If you are injured in such an accident you may be entitled to compensation.
Your injuries are no laughing matter. There may be a long road to recovery based on your injuries, you could be looking at hospital time, surgery or surgeries, recovery time and rehabilitation requirements. All of this can be emotionally and physically exhausting and financially draining. You can’t work which means lost wages for weeks or months.
You may be wondering who is going to pay your medical bills. Do you have the best medical care possible? What about your vehicle? Who will pay for those repairs or even a replacement in the event your car is totaled from the accident.
This wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to cover any of these costs. You may even deserve compensation for the pain and suffering you have been forced to endure as a result of this accident. With so many expenses facing you during this time of crisis, it is essential that you fight for the compensation you deserve.
But in order to get the maximum amount of compensation, you need a smart and skilled personal injury attorney on your side. Commercial vehicles are heavily insured but those insurance companies have no interest in paying you one thin dime. Their adjusters are going to find any reason not to pay you what you deserve and, if they do decide to pay, they will offer you a settlement totaling a fraction of the amount you are rightfully entitled to receive.
