Stafford Truck Accident Lawyer
The commercial trucking industry is an important cog in the state and national economies. Without these trucks, Stafford residents wouldn’t enjoy many of the consumer goods we purchase every day. There would be no lobster from Maine, oranges from Florida, or furniture manufactured in Michigan. Nonetheless, these large vehicles can cause unimaginable damage when they collide with lighter vehicles on the road. Accident victims are left with major medical bills and sometimes permanent injuries.
Henrietta Ezeoke Law Firm can help. Our Stafford trucking accident lawyer knows how to sue truck companies and others for these accidents, but you need to reach out as soon as possible. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
Don’t Sign Away Your Right to Compensation
Many truck accidents are caused by negligent and dangerous truckers. These truckers have tough jobs, but they can make many errors while out on the road, such as:
- Driving while distracted
- Texting and driving
- Zoning out
- Falling asleep
- Illegal lane changes
- Running red lights
- Refusing to yield
- Failing to check blind spots
- Backing up without using a mirror
The federal government regulates this industry to ensure truckers are in good physical health, not intoxicated, and have the necessary training. Truckers also must follow detailed hours of service regulations, which ensure they do not drive for too long each day. Still, too many truckers are driving long hours and taking illegal substances. Public safety suffers.
If you are injured, contact Henrietta Ezeoke Law Firm right away. The trucking company might reach out to you to settle a claim. But you should never sign a settlement without first speaking to our law firm. We can review the settlement and make sure you get fair compensation for all your medical care, lost wages, and car damage.
Our law firm knows how to analyze an accident to make sure you are suing all the correct defendants. Truck accidents are often caused by:
- Negligent or reckless truck drivers
- Trucking companies which fail to supervise, train, or vet their workers
- Loading companies which create unbalanced loads
- Truck mechanics and body shops
- Truck manufacturers
Our lawyer will fully evaluate a claim. Many trucking companies and their insurers nickel and dime our clients. We know how much your claim is worth. We also push to obtain the maximum compensation for your emotional distress, fear, physical pain, and other suffering. Some truck accident victims are left with permanent disabilities that make moving forward difficult. They might also need future medical care, such as at-home assistance or future surgery. You deserve every penny you can get.
