Truck Accident Injuries Are Often Serious. We Can Help.
Commerce moves at a faster pace than ever before and that fact is evidenced – literally – by the heavy flow of commercial trucks on Massachusetts highways and city streets.
When a large vehicle collides with another vehicle, it often results in serious injuries for the other driver and their passengers. The knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, LLP, understand how accidents with large commercial trucks and other commercial vehicles can impact your life permanently.
If you are injured in a crash with a semi trailer or another commercial vehicle, you may face a long stay in the hospital followed by extensive rehabilitation. Of course, you also will face the bills that result from that medical care. If the accident was caused by another driver’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 do 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.
There are many federal rules and regulations that govern the maintenance and operation of trucks. Commercial drivers are expected to know and abide by all of them. The regulations detail guidelines on the weight of a truck, as well as how many hours a driver can drive before being required to have an extended rest period. Our attorneys have a thorough knowledge of all types of trucking regulations and how they may factor into your injury case.
When building your case, we utilize the insight and expertise of a wide range of professionals, including accident reconstruction specialists and investigators. These individuals can scrutinize evidence and provide us with information we can use to bolster your claim. 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 781-860-9500 or use our contact form to schedule a free consultation.
