Proactive Personal Injury Attorney Helping Mount Vernon Victims of Truck Accidents
Accidents involving large trucks can be incredibly frightening and cause overwhelming amounts of damage. This is why commercial drivers are held to higher driving safety standards, though they don’t always comply, and serious accidents happen frequently. If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a truck or 18-wheeler driver, the capable and proactive legal team at Gilbert & Gilbert Lawyers can help.
What Type of Compensation Can I Collect?
If your injuries occurred because of the irresponsible actions of a truck driver, you are more than entitled to sue for damages. This compensation can come in the form of monetary support for resulting medical bills, lost wages, diminished income-earning capability, and/or pain and suffering.
What Does the Legal Process Look Like?
First, we will help you file a claim against the employer of the negligent driver. Their insurance company is responsible for processing the claim which they will either accept and pay out or deny the claim entirely. If the claim is denied, we’ll work directly with the insurance company to negotiate what happens next. We may push for a settlement offer or take them to court. Claims that end up in court will factor in comparative fault and will be settled there. In either case, we will advocate for you with skill, experience, and fearlessness to secure the compensation you deserve.
