Handling the stress after a truck accident

Many people believe that all motor vehicle collisions are essentially the same in terms of quantifying damages, identifying the cause and determining the responsible party. This is inaccurate, however. Many different kinds of collisions require different types of investigation, evidence collection, and other steps in order to fully protect the interests of those who are injured and harmed as a result of the accident. One example of a type of accident requiring special attention is a truck accident involving large semis or tractor trailers.

Because of the large number of semis and tractor trailers that frequent Virginia roadways, it is not uncommon for a large truck to be involved in a collision with a smaller passenger vehicle. When such an accident occurs, the results can often be catastrophic and devastating, both in terms of personal injury and loss of property. In order to ensure that the injured party does not bear the full brunt of the costs alone--if he or she did not cause the crash--it is important to know what steps to take immediately after a collision and how to proceed afterwards.

Our firm has experience with lawsuits related to truck accidents and is aware of many of the most common causes. Whether it is a fatigued driver who spent too much time on the road, a truck that was improperly or inadequately maintained, abuse of drugs or alcohol, improperly secured or overweight cargo, or other actions related to inattentive or reckless, we can possibly help identify the cause of the accident and prove up your case.

We can also help you explore other potential sources of liability, which can give you increased chances of potentially recovering the compensation you need to cover the expenses incurred as a result of the accident. For more information, please visit our website.
