Semi Trucks And Severe Injury
A Collision with a Large Truck Can Be Devastating - You Deserve Justice
If your car or truck was struck at high speed by a fully loaded semi truck, it is likely you suffered severe injuries. How will you recover from such a substantial and grievous loss? At Smith & Hassler, we can help you. Our experienced truck accident attorneys can fight to get you compensation for your injuries.
The safety features built into today's passenger vehicle designs have gone a long way towards reducing the number of serious injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents. But despite such advancements, they cannot account for the superior height, weight, and size of a semi truck if a collision occurs. Add in speed and people are often seriously hurt.
Common Serious Injuries
Passengers in cars involved in semi truck accidents who do survive often have lifelong conditions as a result of their injuries. They include:
- Orthopedic injuries
- Brain injury
- Burn injury
- Extensive physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Reliance on prescription pain medications
Our attorneys will meet with you and review your medical records. We will determine the true value of your claim, one that takes into account your past, current and future medical needs for your injury and considers the impact the injury has had on you and your family.
We will also investigate the accident to search for evidence of negligence on the part of the driver or the trucking company. Our team takes the time to build the strongest case possible.
The insurance company may make a settlement offer, but it will often be for far less than the compensation you deserve. That's not good enough. We take them back to the negotiating table to work out a settlement that works for you. Or we take them to court. We don't back down.
