Car or motorcycle accidents that involve a semi-truck, tractor-trailer, or other large truck are often devastating. If you’ve been injured in such an accident, you’ll need a trucking accident lawyer to work with you to secure a fair and adequate settlement.
Crashes between a car or motorcycle and a truck are less common than between two cars, but when they happen, 86 percent of the fatalities and 77 percent of those injured are the drivers and passengers of the smaller vehicle.
If you’ve been seriously injured, you may be filled with questions about how you will pay your medical bills, and just facing the many ways your injuries are impacting your life. How long will you need medical treatment? How will you recover from lost wages? Will you be able to return to the same job when you recover from your injuries? Are you facing long-term or permanent disability?
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. are personal injury attorneys who work with individuals and families who have been injured in a motorcycle or car accident, helping them understand their situation, evaluate their injuries and medical conditions for legal purposes, and present and litigate their case for damages and compensation.
Often new clients tell us that they’ve already been approached by one or more insurance companies representing the truck driver or the truck driver’s employer. If that’s happened to you, remember that these people do not have your best interests in mind when they are talking to you. Their first offer is always their lowest offer. They want to pay you as little as possible.
Until you talk with us, please resist urges that you may have to be “done with it” and then sign something that could jeopardize your ability to claim additional damages.
You can contact us any time (24 hours) and ask for a free face to face consultation — at a time and at a place that’s convenient for you, including your home or hospital room. When you work with us, you can be confident that you aren’t missing anything, or skipping any steps when making your claim.
In the immediate aftermath of a serious motorcycle or car accident with a truck, you may not be physically or emotionally capable of managing any kind of settlement discussion. Working with the team at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. will hopefully take away some of the worries, so you can concentrate on your recovery process.
And don’t worry about the cost. Setting up a free consultation is the first step. If we decide to work together, it will be a contingency fee agreement, which means we only get paid when you receive your settlement.
