Semi-Truck Accidents

Why hire a semi-truck accident attorney?

The semi-truck accident attorneys at Parke Gordon law office have experience representing clients injured due to the negligence of operators of semi-trucks, big rigs, tractor trailers, and other commercial vehicles. Semi-truck accidents can cause serious injuries because of the size of the vehicles involved.

Special considerations are owed in an accident involving semi trucks because the operation of semi-trucks is governed by federal and state safety laws that regulate trucking companies and their drivers. In other words, claims involving semi-trucks can be complex.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I hire a semi truck accident attorney?

You should hire a semi truck accident attorney as soon as possible. Our semi truck accident attorneys will contact the owner and operator of the semi truck to preserve evidence. Owners and operators of semi trucks are obligated under state and federal law to keep certain records that might be relevant to your case. In addition, a semi truck accident attorney can ensure that you are documenting and treating your injuries in a way to maximize the value of your claim.

How much does it cost to hire a semi truck accident attorney?

Hiring a semi truck accident attorney costs you nothing up front. Instead, semi truck accident attorneys are paid a percentage of the settlement funds when the case is resolved. That means you won’t owe a dime unless and until we settle your semi truck accident case.

How much is my semi truck accident case worth?

The value of your semi truck accident claim depends on the amount of your medical bills and lost wages, the nature and treatment of your injuries, and the impact your injuries have had on your life. Semi truck accident cases are different than other types of accidents for a number of reasons. Here are some ways in which semi truck accidents are different than other types of motor vehicle accidents.

Semi trucks are often covered by commercial insurance policies

Semi trucks are typically insured with more coverage than an average passenger vehicle due to the amount of time semi trucks are on the road as well as the size, nature, and movement of a semi truck. The larger amount of insurance coverage is necessary to cover the extensive damages and injuries caused by a semi truck accident.

Semi truck owners and operators are governed by state and federal laws

Semi truck owners and operators are governed by more regulations than a typical passenger vehicle. These regulations govern the maintenance of semi trucks, qualifications of semi truck operators, inspections, and logbooks.

Greater forces are involved in semi truck accidents

Injuries caused by a semi truck accident are often much more severe than injuries from caused by a car accident because the size and weight of a semi truck creates greater damage upon impact. Although many trucking companies will carry large insurance policies to cover such damages, the impact of such serious injuries are often life-changing.

Why is Parke Gordon the right team for the job?

Earn More Money

An attorney knows how much your case is worth, which is invaluable in negotiations with an insurance company. In fact, one insurance company’s own internal study showed that it paid five times more money to people who hire an attorney.

An Attorney Will Maximize the Value of Your Claim

An attorney can get you more money in your pocket by investigating and exploring insurance coverage available to compensate you for your injuries, recommending health care providers who diagnose and treat common accident injuries, and negotiating discounts with health insurers who seek subrogation.

Fast Settlements

We have sophisticated and efficient claims handling procedures that lead to fast settlements. That said, if an insurance company offers a low-ball settlement, we will fight them in court. Our attorneys have successfully litigated hundreds of cases against insurance companies and will make sure you recover every penny you deserve.
