When a semi tractor-trailer weighing up to 80,000 pounds collides with a car weighing an average of about 4,000 pounds, the car is going to suffer the brunt of the impact. That’s why injuries after truck accidents often are much more serious than those from a crash with another car.
At Lourie Law Firm, we realize just how serious those injuries can be, from broken bones that need immediate treatment and surgeries to traumatic brain injuries that require care for a lifetime. We help car drivers every day get the fair settlements they need to cover their medical bills, make up for lost wages, ensure on-going care and compensate them for their pain and suffering.
Our experienced truck accident attorneys have represented drivers in the full range of truck crashes, including those caused by:
- Blind-spot, or “no-zone” collisions
- Tire blowouts
- Falling cargo
- Distracted driving
In many tractor-trailer accidents, the truck driver isn’t the only one culpable. At times, trucking companies are negligent, too. Knowing that they could be facing a lawsuit, the companies act fast, sending investigators out quickly. They are certainly not going to offer up any evidence pointing to their wrongdoing to victims.
That’s why you need to consult a knowledgeable, determined personal injury attorney as quickly as possible. At Lourie Law Firm, we’ll start our own investigation, hiring accident reconstructionists if necessary. We’ll gather all reports and evidence, and only after that are we ready to talk to insurance lawyers who have no doubt already been calling and pressing you to settle.
We’re perfectly willing to talk to them, but only if the settlement they propose is one that takes care of your needs now and into the future. Otherwise, we’re prepared to head to court.
Call us today and make sure you have a fierce advocate who will fight for you. The initial consultation is free.
