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.

This was an awesome experience with Brittney Cassiere, Miriam Calisher, and my attorney Jill. What made me select Cohen & Cohen for my case, was my experience many years ago with Kim Brooks-Rodney. I definitely recommend anyone to use them. They have your best interest at hand.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication. I will recommend the services to anyone in these situations. Riley and Brittney were certainly very helpful during the process.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
