Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Semi Truck Accident LawyerEven though many of our roads and highways were not designed for the volume of traffic and the size of the vehicles on them, many large trucks travel on them and as a result many people are in need of a semi truck accident lawyer Virginia community members recommend.

Getting into any kind of accident is scary. Getting into one where the other vehicle outweighs the one you were in by 75,000 pounds or more can be more than frightening. If you or someone close to you has been injured in an accident like this, your pain may be at the forefront of your mind but the mental anguish it caused is probably not far behind.

Even the safest and most skilled truck drivers cannot get their trucks to be something that they are not. They are vehicles that when loaded can legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds- and many parties will deliberately exceed this even though it is illegal to do. Because of a semi truck’s size and weight, it cannot do anything fast. It can not swerve out of the way of something quickly, it cannot stop quickly, nor can it speed up quickly. Even when the most careful and skilled truck driver is behind the wheel there are many factors that are beyond their control when it comes to trying to safely guide their truck. The unfortunate result is often an accident. When a truck of this size and weight collides with a smaller passenger car or van, the results are often devastating for the smaller vehicle and its passengers.

If you or someone close to you has been in an accident with a commercial truck, you may find if helpful to learn about your rights by discussing your situation with a semi truck accident lawyer Virginia residents can get legal advice from.

An unfortunate reality is that not all truck drivers with a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) are as careful as they are supposed to be. Even though it takes a lot more time, knowledge and skill to get a CDL, there are driver’s who do not honor what this license is supposed to uphold. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is a federal agency that puts out strict guidelines for rules, laws, and regulations that govern motor carriers in the United States. They also pass laws specific to trucking in the hopes of increasing the safety of semi trucks and other large commercial trucks. These rules and regulations try to ensure that drivers have a sufficient amount of time to sleep when they are not driving by limiting the number of hours they are allowed to drive. Unfortunately, many drivers break these rules and laws, often times because they want to make schedule deadlines.

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.
