When should I hire a semi truck accident attorney?
You should hire a semi truck accident attorney as soon as possible. Our semi truck accident attorneys will contact the owner and operator of the semi truck to preserve evidence. Owners and operators of semi trucks are obligated under state and federal law to keep certain records that might be relevant to your case. In addition, a semi truck accident attorney can ensure that you are documenting and treating your injuries in a way to maximize the value of your claim.
How much does it cost to hire a semi truck accident attorney?
Hiring a semi truck accident attorney costs you nothing up front. Instead, semi truck accident attorneys are paid a percentage of the settlement funds when the case is resolved. That means you won’t owe a dime unless and until we settle your semi truck accident case.
How much is my semi truck accident case worth?
The value of your semi truck accident claim depends on the amount of your medical bills and lost wages, the nature and treatment of your injuries, and the impact your injuries have had on your life. Semi truck accident cases are different than other types of accidents for a number of reasons. Here are some ways in which semi truck accidents are different than other types of motor vehicle accidents.
Semi trucks are often covered by commercial insurance policies
Semi trucks are typically insured with more coverage than an average passenger vehicle due to the amount of time semi trucks are on the road as well as the size, nature, and movement of a semi truck. The larger amount of insurance coverage is necessary to cover the extensive damages and injuries caused by a semi truck accident.
Semi truck owners and operators are governed by state and federal laws
Semi truck owners and operators are governed by more regulations than a typical passenger vehicle. These regulations govern the maintenance of semi trucks, qualifications of semi truck operators, inspections, and logbooks.
Greater forces are involved in semi truck accidents
Injuries caused by a semi truck accident are often much more severe than injuries caused by a car accident. The size and weight of a semi truck creates greater damage upon impact. Although many trucking companies will carry large insurance policies to cover such damages, the impact of such serious injuries are often life-changing.
I was so pleased with Park Gordon Law Firm. Mat Parke was always on top of my case. He kept me informed but did all the work for me. I wasn't sure if I should have gone the lawyer route but I am so glad I did. It took away the stress and headache of trying to get anything by myself. He got my case settled and went above and beyond. Definitely would recommend the firm.
I had to contact the wonderful team at Parke Gordon Law due to a motor vehicle accident, I was hit by a car and thrown across the Freeway. I didn't know what to do or where to start. I was recommended to call them and I am so glad I did. I basically went through the initial interview which brought all the anxiety and pain to the front, but they reassured they would be with me through everything and they truly were. They handled everything for me, and kept me updated along the way or informed me if something needed to be done.
I really couldn't have asked for a better team as they provided top notch customer service, and still did everything to make sure I got the most possible to compensate for the pain and trauma I went through and still have to deal with.
If you're like me and are searching between firms, trying to decide the best team for your case and you don't even know where to begin, then rest easy knowing you can trust the people at Parke Gordon Law!
PS: I want to especially thank Randi and Jane for all the time put in to dealing with my case, and my sometimes rambling phone calls. You both were great!
