Fairfax Truck Accidents Lawyers

Accidents between passenger vehicles and semi tractor-trailers often result in catastrophic injuries for those riding in the smaller vehicle. The difference in size and weight between cars and semis is stark. A semi can weigh more than 80,000 pounds while a car is often less than 5,000 pounds.

The size and weight of tractor-trailers not only causes accidents to be more likely to inflict very serious wounds, it also can be the source of accidents. The massive weight of semis makes them difficult to control on highways, especially when there is inclement weather or less than ideal road conditions.

Given the severity of the injuries that can occur in accidents involving semis, it is essential that your rights are protected by an attorney who can help you understand what level of compensation will be necessary to meet your needs going into the future.

Speak With an Attorney Before You Speak With an Insurance Company

Commercial trucks are often insured for substantial amounts to cover the level of injury that comes from accidents with them. Insurance companies understand the impact large payouts can have on their bottom line and will set to work as soon as possible following an accident to minimize their liability.

Speak with a knowledgeable attorney who you can trust to protect your rights before you give any statements to an insurance company.
