Truck Accidents on I-40 in Winston-Salem
Accidents involving buses and trucks happen frequently on I-40 in Winston-Salem. This totally stops traffic in the downtown area and causes many rear-end collisions with trucks involved. Winston-Salem has enjoyed growth over recent years. However, new businesses and restaurants require deliveries to service customers, and the older roads and traffic routes in Winston-Salem were not designed to deal with heavy truck traffic. There is also a shortage of truck drivers on a national scale, so we see less-experienced truck drivers on the road who are more likely to cause serious accidents.
As a former insurance defense attorney, Carl B. Nagle has the benefit of being able to:
- Establish the best strategy for your case: With inside knowledge of how insurance companies generally defend truck accident cases, we can come up with the best strategy possible to secure generous compensation for your injuries and losses.
- Negotiate with the insurance company: We have experience fighting trucking companies and commercial insurance carriers in state and federal courts. We also have extensive experience proving driver violations, which allow us to seek increased payments for our clients. With our thorough early investigations and our detailed presentation of your evidence, we know how to get the best possible settlement offer from the insurance company.
- Litigate successfully against the insurance company: When they are unwilling to negotiate, we have the skills to win a favorable verdict in litigation.
It is important to remember that insurance companies defend against trucking accident claims much more fiercely than they do against regular car accident claims. The reason is simple: They have a lot more to lose in truck accident cases. Contact us — we know how to protect and enforce your legal rights.
