If a crash involving a big rig or other commercial truck has left you injured and in need of compensation, an El Cajon commercial truck crash attorney can help you through the process.
Commercial truck collisions are extremely likely to leave you with catastrophic injuries. These wounds will result in substantial medical debt, loss of wages due to missed work, and anxiety or trauma related to the incident. All vehicle collisions are scary, but a crash involving an 18-wheeler can be especially so.
If you’ve been seriously hurt in a semi-truck or other commercial vehicle wreck and the accident wasn’t your fault, you should receive a full settlement for your losses. An El Cajon truck accident lawyer with The Kindley Firm, APC, can evaluate your case to determine how much compensation you are owed.
When you’ve been injured in a semi-truck collision, you would think the ordeal would garner you the sympathy of every person who hears of your accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies are not going to be sympathetic to your plight.
Instead of listening to your version of events, they will likely attempt to trip you up and get you to admit some fault for your accident. They are not going to be considerate in their dealings with you, and this often makes victims feel as though they are being victimized all over again.
Insurance companies behave this way because at the end of the day they are a for-profit company. They want to make as much money as possible, so their adjusters are taught ways to lower payouts. This is extremely unfair for you, an individual who was hurt in an accident that wasn’t even your fault.
Your truck accident attorney does care about your injuries and losses, however, and we will fight the insurance adjusters on your behalf. We will take their calls so that you won’t be tricked into claiming any responsibility for the collision.
When the trucker or trucking company is the at-fault party in your commercial truck accident, you can sue for the cost of your related expenses and losses. You can recover both the economic (financial) and non-economic (quality-of-life) damages you’ve experienced.
The following is a list of damages you can request compensation for when you weren’t responsible for your truck collision and they apply to your case:
Being involved in an accident of any kind is a frightening experience, but being in a truck wreck that resulted in serious injuries can be life changing. You are going to need a fair and full settlement that will provide the peace of mind you need to move forward with your life, as well as secure your financial wellbeing for the future.
