If one of these things has happened to you or to somebody you love in Reston, it may be time to enlist the help of a reliable truck accident lawyer that is licensed to practice throughout VA, to find out what your and your loved ones’ rights are.

Dangers of Truck Accidents

Because of their size and the damage they can do, accidents with large trucks such as commercial 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, tend to be very, very scary.

Accidents with these kinds of trucks often cause fatalities that warrant the need for surviving family members to file a personal injury, wrongful death claim against the party or parties that caused the accident in order to protect their family’s financial future. When the kind damage they do does not cause people to die, they can still cause a horrific amount of damage to the bodies of people involved in the accident as well as to the property that was in harm’s way of the accident. The victims of these accidents and their family, have already suffered, they should not have to suffer financially because of this too. It is recommended that victims of Reston truck accidents seek the help of a reputable VA truck accident lawyer.

Some of the reasons accidents with large trucks can cause so much damage include but are not limited to:

– On average, a semi weighs 80,000 pounds compared to the average car that weighs a fraction of this at 5,000 pounds. Trucks called turnpike-doubles, can weigh up to 147,000 pounds.

– When a semi is connected to a trailer, it is usually 53 feet long but this can vary.

-Turnpike-doubles, consist of two 48-foot trailers connected to a semi. The average length of a car is only 15 feet long with many cars being significantly smaller than this.

– The average turning width for a semi is 55 feet, which is nearly 5 times larger than the width of an average road or highway lane in the U.S.

– It takes large trucks much longer to slow down, speed up and to execute maneuvers such as, changing lanes and making turns.

– While it is illegal for truckers to drive more than a certain amount of hours, many truckers drive while fatigued and/or under the influence

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
