Trucking accidents are an unfortunate part of sharing the road with commercial vehicles. Every year thousands of innocent people are injured or killed due to collisions with trailers and other large commercial vehicles.
The sheer size and weight of trucks make the injuries associated with trucking accidents more severe than those associated with other types of crashes.
At The Valente Law Group, we have helped many clients who have been the victims of truck accidents in Maryland and have suffered the interruption of their lives due to personal injuries, hospital and medical bills, and financial losses, including lost wages.
What Our Lawyers Can Do For You
After a collision involving a truck or any kind of commercial vehicle, you’re going to need to enlist the help of a lawyer. At The Valente Law Group, our lawyers coordinate between your insurance companies, document your injuries to present the findings to a jury, or in settlement negotiations.
We understand that expenses can increase after a crash; that’s why we work to get you the compensation you may be eligible for, for any medical bills, lost wages and so that you are fairly compensated for your pain or suffering. Working with our experts means you will have access to a variety of benefits such as:
- Outside experts to get second opinions.
- Interviewing witnesses
- Combing through company records to find any necessary evidence
The fault may also lie with several other parties, in which case, our associates will work with you to hold the necessary party accountable. There are many reasons the fault might lie with several parties, for example:
- If a driver has driven far more than the legal number of hours in a week, the employer may be at fault for allowing the limit to be exceeded.
- If the accident was caused by mechanical failure, the truck manufacturer or maintenance company might be to blame
- If the roads were poorly maintained, individual municipalities might be responsible.
