Commerce moves at a faster pace than ever before and that fact is evidenced — literally — by the heavy flow of commercial trucks that are on Massachusetts highways and city streets.
When these large vehicles are involved in an accident, it often results in serious injuries for the occupants of the other vehicle. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, LLP, understand how accidents with large commercial vehicles can impact your life permanently.
If you are injured in a crash with a semitrailer or other commercial vehicle, you may face a lengthy hospital stay followed by an extensive rehabilitation. Of course, you also will face the bills that come with that medical care. If the accident was caused by someone else's negligence, you are entitled to full compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
We Protect Your Rights And Add Value To Your Case
Some commercial trucking companies will attempt to reach a settlement with you quickly or even look for information that will help fight any personal injury claims you make. It is important that you not speak with any representatives of the company that was involved in the accident until you have spoken with your own personal injury lawyer. Once you have received the necessary medical attention for your injuries, your first call should be to our office.
Commercial drivers and their employers must adhere to numerous regulations regarding the operation and maintenance of their trucks. These include stipulations about weight, as well as strict rules limiting how many hours a driver can log without an extended rest. Our attorneys have a thorough knowledge of these regulations and the role they may play in your case.
We have access to highly skilled accident reconstruction specialists and investigators who can pore over the evidence and help us build a strong case. Our experience representing victims of accidents involving 18-wheelers allows us to anticipate the legal strategy that a trucking company's insurance provider will use in an attempt to minimize the amount of compensation it pays.
If you or someone you love has incurred a truck accident injury, call 781-325-1786 or use our contact form to schedule a free consultation. We will review the facts of your case and recommend the best steps to take. If we take your case, you will only pay attorney fees if we obtain a recovery for you, either through negotiation or a court judgment.
