Injured in a Commercial Vehicle Accident? Contact Graves McLain for a Free Consultation.
Accidents involving commercial vehicles are responsible for nearly 500,000 incidents annually. Unfortunately, since these vehicles can range in size, they often come with considerable injuries or fatalities that can change a family’s life forever. Even worse, representatives within the company will often begin investigating the accident within hours to determine the best ways to avoid steep financial penalties and clean up the mess that their drivers have created – leaving individuals with bills that the company, or their insurance provider, may refuse to pay.
While it may seem hopeless to try and fight a large corporation and their insurance adjusters on your own, the process does not have to be hard when you partner with an experienced motor vehicle accident legal team. Commercial insurance carriers often have a group of adjusters looking out for their best interests, with little to no regard for the other individuals that were affected by the accident. Graves McLain has commercial vehicle accident lawyers that are ready to review your case and fight for the compensation you are owed while you focus on recovering physically and emotionally.
Some common commercial vehicles that may be involved in accidents include:
Big Rigs and Semis
Moving Trucks and Vans
Given the size of most of these vehicles, commercial vehicle accidents often cause irreparable damage and settlements tend to be higher than those associated with normal vehicle accidents. For this reason, it is important to seek legal counsel from a commercial vehicle accident attorney as soon as possible to achieve the best outcome and fair compensation. While Graves McLain cannot undo an injury from a commercial vehicle accident, we can fight to help victims get the compensation they are entitled to due to the negligence of another driver. If you or a loved one were injured in a commercial vehicle accident, our team can review your case and help you navigate the complex legal system.
Once a commercial vehicle accident occurs, the victim needs to ensure they are working as fast as opposing adjusters to ensure they do not fall behind. Once contacted, the commercial vehicle accident attorneys at Graves McLain will get to work immediately to review your case and determine the best steps to take next. No matter what type of vehicle caused the accident, we will investigate and gather the information needed to ensure you get the compensation and support needed to get back to a sense of normalcy.
