Our last blog post discussed the dangers presented by semi-trucks based on their massive size and the increased distance they need to stop. Though it is hoped that trucking companies and their drivers are well-aware of this issue, the seemingly constant news of tragic truck accidents portrays a different reality. If you have been injured in a wreck involving a semi-truck, then you know that the aftermath can be difficult to get through. You may find yourself having to cope with physical pain, emotional trauma and financial strife.
Even though the future may seem bleak, there can be a bright future ahead. One way to obtain that future, where financial stability and a sense of justice is acquired, is to file a personal injury lawsuit. There are two primary ways you can succeed on such a claim. First, you may be able to negotiate a settlement with the trucker and the company the driver works for. Second, you take the matter to trial and have the matter decided by a judge and jury.
Both paths could lead to success, but they both also require significant legal skills and know-how, in case you step into the legal battle unprepared. The Law Offices of John M. McCabe wants to ensure that those who suffer harmed caused by a negligent driver are fully prepared for either their day in court or when they sit down to discuss settlement. Our firm has years of experience handling truck accident cases, and we fight to ensure our clients’ voices are heard.
Furthermore, we do everything possible under the circumstances to ensure the extent of our clients’ injuries are illustrated. This helps the other side, the judge and the jury to see just how damaging the wreck has been for our clients and justifies the amount of compensation sought. Facing a legal battle can be tough, and no one should go at it alone. To learn more, check out our website.
