We know that tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles are the cause of a disproportionate number of the accidents that occur on America’s roads. Unlike the fender benders that create inconveniences and trips to the body shop, collisions with these enormous vehicles result in catastrophic injuries, disabilities, and even death. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an accident with a truck, the truck accident attorneys at Danziger & De Llano can help.
Though the trucking industry tries to minimize the dangers that it poses, the statistics are clear. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there was a twenty percent increase in the number of fatal crashes involving large trucks between 2009 and 2013 and a 55 percent increase in the number of injury crashes between 2009 and 2014.
There are many things that have contributed to this, including increased pressure on drivers to meet unrealistic and demanding deadlines, and the increase in usage of distracting electronic devices such as smartphones and GPS devices. These and other causes of truck accidents represent negligence on the part of truck drivers and negligent oversight on the part of the trucking companies.
When You’ve Been In a Truck Accident Attorney, We Stand Up for Your Rights
One of the most remarkable and consistent things that happen after a truck accident is the speed with which the truck accident lawyers will call and try to speak to a truck accident victim. They will try to get you to say that the accident was your fault, or to accept a quick and easy settlement, all within days of the accident occurring. They do this to protect themselves from confronting the actual damages suffered by victims, and the legal responsibility for the pain that they’ve caused.
One of the most important ways that a truck accident attorney from Danziger & De Llano can help you is to ensure that you are not taken advantage of. You can refer all of the truck company and insurance calls to us, and we’ll take care of it all — the paperwork, the negotiations, and getting you the money you need to recover from the injuries you’ve suffered.
What Are the Damages Available to Truck Accident Attorney Victims?
When a person is injured as a result of negligence, the person or entity that acted carelessly can be held legally responsible for the damages they caused. This can include having to pay for your medical expenses — including the costs of prescriptions, medical equipment, and rehabilitation or physical therapy — plus lost wages, reimbursement for property damage and even compensation for pain and suffering. Every case is different, but at Danziger & De Llano we are dedicated to getting you the money you deserve and need. Contact us today to set up a free consultation.
