Truck Accident Lawyer in Richmond

Collisions with large trucks can result in serious injuries for drivers and passengers of normal-sized vehicles. Because of the sheer size of semi-trucks, accidents can result in life-threatening injuries. Even when you walk away from the accident, you could still be left with overwhelming medical costs and the inability to return to work.

If you or a loved one suffered serious or fatal injuries in an accident caused by a semi-truck driver, you may be entitled to compensation. The Richmond truck accident lawyers at Preszler Injury Lawyers have extensive experience handling personal injury claims and can help you seek financial recovery for your current and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.

If you would like us to evaluate your case at no cost and offer you our professional opinion on the value of your claim, please feel free to contact us at 1-844-373-8202 to schedule your appointment with a truck accident lawyer in Richmond.

How do truck accident claims work in Richmond?

If you were injured in an accident with a semi-truck, whether or not you can recover compensation depends on several factors. First, you will need to prove the driver of the semi-truck engaged in some kind of reckless or negligent behavior. This could include:

  • Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs.
  • Driving while tired, or without taking proper breaks.
  • Driving distracted by a cell phone or other mobile device.
  • Using improper driving or breaking techniques.
  • Not keeping a proper lookout.
  • Not following the rules of the road.

Some truck accidents occur because of driver error. Others happen because of a design flaw in the truck or improper maintenance of the truck’s components, such as the breaks, engine parts, or tires. As the accident victim, the onus is on you to prove the truck driver or his employer negligently maintained the truck or that the manufacturer of the truck component made a defective part.

Once you have proof the truck driver or a related third-party was responsible for causing your accident, then you can bring a claim against them in court. The party at fault will usually try to settle with you outside of court.

Do I need a Richmond truck accident lawyer to handle my claim?

There are countless benefits to hiring a Richmond truck accident lawyer at Preszler Injury Lawyers. Our lawyers know how to handle truck accident claims and can ensure the compensation you receive is fair. And of course, if the party at fault refuses to settle for a full and fair amount, our lawyers can quickly get started with a lawsuit in order to recover the compensation you deserve.

Without legal advice, you could be left with a settlement that only covers part of your medical expenses, or worse, you could be left with no compensation at all. Let our lawyers navigate the complexities of the law and handle the stressful negotiations with the insurance company while you focus on healing.

What should I look for in a Richmond truck accident lawyer?

The truck accident lawyer you choose should have plenty of experience handling personal injury claims, especially those involving commercial trucks and serious or fatal injuries. The lawyer should also have a successful track record of securing full settlements and verdicts for their clients, which demonstrates their ability to communicate and negotiate with the opposing party’s insurers and lawyers. A truck accident lawyer should also be able to gather and effectively use evidence from the crash to support your case.

Our firm’s legal team possesses these qualifications and more. We are ready and happy to meet you to answer any of your questions.

How much can I recover in my truck accident claim?

Every case is unique, and there is no absolute formula for calculating the value of a claim. The truck accident lawyers in Richmond at Preszler Injury Lawyers can evaluate your claim at no cost and provide you with an informed decision about its worth. With this information, you will know what constitutes a full and fair settlement.

You have two years from the time of the crash to file a claim. If you do not file your claim before the end of two years, you likely forfeit your right to recover compensation for your injuries.

It is in your best interest to have an experienced lawyer on your side who can obtain the evidence needed to support your claim. Our lawyers will fight to get the best possible resolution to your case and get you the compensation you deserve.
