Legal Rights

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident accident, you are most likely overwhelmed with financial concerns, physical pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.  As a board certified civil trial lawyer, with extensive experience in handling trucking and tractor trailer accidents, I can help you gain control and develop a plan for your future.

Each trucking accident is unique and so are the possibilities for obtaining compensation.  During the initial consultation, I will discuss the details of your case and provide you with a thorough understanding of your legal rights. You will understand your strategic options and feel more relaxed about what to do next.  I work with each victim and their family to develop a comprehensive plan that will not only meet the challenges of today, but also the needs of tomorrow.

Below is a quick overview of some potential areas in which you may be eligible to receive compensation:

DISFIGUREMENT, MENTAL ANGUISH, LOSS OF CAPACITY FOR ENJOYMENT OF LIFE, DISABILITY, PHYSICAL IMPAIRMENT, PAIN & SUFFERING: This is compensation for the human damages suffered as a result of being in a trucking accident. Recovery can be sought for both the damage sustained in the past and the expected future harm for the rest of your life.

MEDICAL: Payment of current and future medical bills including hospitalization, surgical procedures, counseling, cosmetic surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, prescriptions and on-going medical care may be awarded.

LOSS OF INCOME & VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION: You may be eligible to receive compensation for past and future lost wages, as well as compensation if you need to be re-trained into a new occupation.

SPOUSE & FAMILIES LOSS:This is compensation for the injured partner’s spouse and close family members when the trucking accident injury is so severe that it interferes with the familial relationships, requiring members to perform services that would not otherwise be required.

Sadly, many insurance companies fail to recognize cosmetic procedures as a necessary surgery for a accident victim to recover emotionally. Additionally, insurance companies often under estimate future financial burdens. For this reason, it is critical that you hire an experienced “trucking accident” attorney with a successful track record for working with insurance companies and overcoming such obstacles.
