An attorney for Statewide Semi-Truck Accidents

Semi-truck accidents can happen any time of day or night. The size, weight, and poor maneuverability of semi trucks make them much more difficult to drive than normal passenger cars and much more dangerous. Even low-speed, low-impact collisions can cause serious injuries or death.

Recent U.S. Department of Transportation statistics show that in 2009, there were nine people a day killed and 202 people a day injured by semi-truck accidents (includes information updated in September 2011).

Why so many? Too often, drivers and companies bend or ignore safety rules and regulations in order to increase profits.

Don’t let companies put their profits before your safety! Contact Attorney Chad B. McKay today for efficient, personalized service. We can help you whether you were a driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian.

You Need A Personal Injury Lawyer Who’ll Fight For Fairness

Lawyers who handle semi-truck accidents know the rules that businesses must obey and will hold them accountable.

Victims of semi-truck accidents have a right to monetary compensation (a settlement) for their injuries and the damage to their vehicle, as well as reimbursement of lost wages, medical bills, and other costs.

However, filing an insurance claim against a trucking company is not as easy or as simple as filing a claim in a regular car accident case.

The trucking companies and their insurance companies will often try to intimidate a victim without a lawyer into taking an unfair, low-ball settlement. These settlements are almost never enough to meet the victim’s needs and typically do not take into account the cost of continuing or future medical care, lost income, physical hardships, and other types of suffering and loss.

You need an attorney well versed in semi-truck accidents who can act quickly on your behalf – it’s the only way to level the playing field and make sure you’re treated fairly. Contact Attorney Chad B. McKay today for efficient, personalized legal service regarding semi-truck accidents.
