Proving That A Trucking Company Was Negligent
The strength of the evidence that can be gathered and presented against the trucking company will play a significant role in maximizing the value of your personal injury claim. When serious injuries are involved in a truck accident, it is almost always worth a thorough investigation of trucking company hiring, operating and maintenance practices.
Trucking companies often cut corners in some areas, and they are required by federal law to carry large bodily injury liability insurance coverage. When you are involved in a truck accident, it is unlikely that your insurance maximums alone will cover the life-altering injuries and possibly devastating effects you and your family may suffer. You need an advocate for your long-term financial stability and livelihood.
A talented trial lawyer is your best ally. Your insurance company will not help you maximize the value of your claim for fear of its own liability. At Kammholz Messina, LLP, our attorneys know how to help you access the immediate coverage you need for medical bills and lost wages, and we know how to maximize the full and fair compensation you are entitled to for past, present and future losses and damages.
