Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Semi Accident Law Firm VirginiaWith the continued increase in the number of semis and other large trucks on the roads in the past decade, there has been an increased need for a reliable semi accident law firm Virginia drivers and passengers and their families can turn to when they have been hurt in an accident.

Accidents Involving Large Trucks

According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration:

  • In 2016, there were approximately 475,000 police-reported crashes involving large trucks.
    Approximately 3,864 of these were fatal and 104,000 of them resulted in serious but non-fatal
    injuries
  • The majority of large truck accidents in 2016 involved just two vehicles
  • Fatal accidents involving large trucks are more common in rural areas and on Interstate highways
  • Approximately 61% of all fatal accidents involving large trucks occurred in rural areas; 27%
    occured on Interstate highways; and 15% occured on rural Interstate highways (report from
    2016)
  • There was an increase in the number of fatal large truck crashes in the United States from 10.5
    deaths per million people in 2010, to 12.0 deaths per million people in 2016

Even though statistics and data can be helpful for defending the rights of large truck accident victims and their families, when you or someone you love become one of these statistics, it usually does not matter how many other people have been affected by a similar tragedy in the past.

One thing that may be a small comfort is knowing that you have a legal team on your side who is fighting for your rights and trying to make your financial future secure. If you or someone you love has been in an accident with a large truck, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a semi accident law firm Virginia accident victims and their families recommend.

Semi Accident Personal Injury Claims

Large truck accidents are often caused, or contributed to, by negligent drivers, crew, shipping companies, truck and trailer owners, and/or other parties involved in the commercial trucking industry.

These entities typically have powerful insurance companies on their side that have vast resources that they use to try to ensure that they can pay out as little as possible to the person their client injured.

Be wary of offers from insurance companies that represent the party or parties that caused your or your loved one’s injuries. While their offers to pay medical and property damage bills may offer an immediate solution to the financial hardships the accident created, there is a good chance that this will not be enough in the long run.

When someone is injured in the United States because of somebody else’s negligence, they typically have the right to file a personal injury claim against the negligent party (or parties) in a civil lawsuit. Some of these claims can be settled before they go to trial whereas others need to be disputed in a trial with a judge or in a trial with a jury and a judge.

The compensation that victims and their families usually seek is to take care of medical and property damage costs, and to ensure that they will not incur financial hardships in the future that are related to the accident. Many people find that it is easiest and most efficient to do this with the help of a personal injury law firm that is experienced in successfully defending the rights of injured people and their families.

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.
