Truck Accidents Result In Serious Injuries And Require Knowledgeable Legal Counsel
Because of the size and weight of semi trucks and other commercial vehicles, serious injuries often occur when they are involved in accidents. If you or a loved one is injured in an accident involving a commercial vehicle in Northwest Florida, it is important to enlist the services of an experienced personal injury attorney.
If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, the lawyers at Nix & Kirkland, P.A., in Milton will advocate on your behalf to recover the full amount you deserve. We help our clients recover compensation for hospital bills and other medical costs, lost wages, property loss, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Trucking Companies Defend Their Drivers Assertively
Businesses that have fleets of trucks on the road are regularly involved in lawsuits resulting from accidents. These companies have lawyers on the payroll that aggressively defend their drivers’ actions and work to minimize the amount they pay in claims. It is critical to enlist the services of knowledgeable truck accident lawyers like ours, who will conduct an independent investigation of the accident and collect important evidence that will support your case.
Commercial vehicles and their drivers are subject to numerous laws that are designed to increase safety — everything from limits on freight loads to the number of hours a driver can work without a break. The frantic pace of commerce often results in these laws being broken, which can play a significant role in causing accidents. We have the resources, knowledge and experience necessary to determine when operator error or disregard of a transportation law contributed to the cause of an accident.
We also work extensively with medical professionals who will provide thorough diagnosis of your injuries, how debilitating they can be, and what short-term and long-term treatment is involved.
Speak With Us Before You Speak With Insurance Representatives
Insurance company representatives may reach out to you soon after an accident to hear your explanation of what occurred or even to offer what appears to be a generous settlement. Do not speak with them until you have enlisted the services of a personal injury attorney who can review the facts of your case and give you an accurate assessment of its value.
Insurance company representatives are not compelled to act with your best interests in mind. For our attorneys, your best interests are all that drives us. Call 850-981-9959 or use our online contact form to schedule a free consultation.
