Although semi trucks play an important role in our society, they also pose significant risks. To keep truck drivers and other motorists safe, truckers and truck companies need to be active in training and maintenance. For example, last week we discussed tire maintenance and how improper tire maintenance can leave a big rig unstable. Those who are injured by a negligently maintained or driven truck can face a devastating aftermath. Medical expenses can be insurmountable, lost wages can destroy an individual’s financial well-being, and one’s physical and emotional pain and suffering can leave one depressed and overwhelmed.
If you have been in a truck accident, then you may need compensation, and you probably want it as quickly as possible. Perhaps the best way to do this is to file a personal injury lawsuit against both the trucker who caused the accident and the company for which he or she works. If you choose to do this, though, you’ll likely be in for quite a fight. The good news is that you can fight with an ally who will help you stand up for your legal rights.
At Konicek & Dillon PC, our legal team knows how trucking companies and their drivers try to protect themselves from legal liability. Knowing how the defense will approach certain legal issues and facts allows our attorneys to create a legal strategy that surgically approaches key facts and issues. Throughout the process we diligently work to protect our clients’ interests.
The choice of an attorney can be complex. Those who need legal assistance should carefully consider their options, looking at the firm’s experience and record of success. Once potential firms are identified, truck accident victims may want to reach out to those firms for an initial consultation to learn more about what the firm can do for them in their quest to recover damages.
