Our Raleigh Injury Attorney Will Protect Your Rights
Contact Carl Nagle immediately for a free consultation about your rights and our firm's ability to protect them. Truck accident litigation is different in many ways from the proof of liability and damages in ordinary car crash cases. Handling your cases like a typical car crash matter will result in a huge loss in case value. We accept referrals from any lawyer who does not have experience in trucking cases, and can help to make sure that the victim's claims are thoroughly established and prosecuted. Here are some features of semi accident claims that can play a decisive role in the outcome of your case:
- Multiple defendants — a half dozen or more corporate and individual parties might be responsible for different aspects of the ownership, maintenance, loading or operation of the semi rig involved in your accident. All should contribute to payment of your losses!
- Federal regulation — our knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations can help streamline the investigation of the case and help us identify violations and establish the liability of any federally regulated defendant.
- Catastrophic injuries and commercial insurance — the million-dollar policies in place for commercial trucking companies and professional drivers mean that every aspect of your damages claim must be documented in detail. With high financial exposure, trucking companies employ the very best adjusters and lawyers to oppose victims' claims. Because truck accidents often cause very serious injuries, choosing the right lawyer is crucial to the success of your case.
- Punitive damages — competitive pressures in the trucking industry sometimes result in clear violations of federal safety regulations and maintenance standards. Our ability to identify and prove willful violations can significantly increase your claim settlement or trial verdict.
Our familiarity with the trucking industry and the proof of both liability and damages in semi truck accidents provides a powerful advantage for our clients. The serious brain injuries, permanent spinal cord damage, or fatal accidents characteristic of truck accidents at highway speeds means that you and your family will need everything you can get to support your transition to life with a disability or without a spouse or parent.
