Nearly every item you touch or see today traveled by truck at some time. The streets
and highways in Los Angeles County and Orange County carry a lot of truck traffic
from pickups to huge eighteen wheelers, and every one of them can cause an accident.
Trucks have enormous blind spots and lack the maneuverability and ability to stop
quickly. They often can't see smaller cars, so even if the truck doesn't jackknife
or roll over, they can hit or crush cars and injure those people inside.
Because of their size, truck accidents often result in more serious injuries, such
as burn injuries, and extensive damage to property than car accidents or motorcycle
accidents do. While the truck driver may be driving his or her best, the companies
that own the truck may often be negligent in maintaining the vehicle, and tires,
brakes, and other components may be worn or defective. These factors may not be
noticed by you, especially if you or a loved one has suffered any injury, but these
are factors a knowledgeable personal injury attorney with Banafshe Law Firm, PC,
will check while you recover.
If you're in a truck accident, chances are hiring an attorney is not your first
priority, especially if anyone's been hurt. While you should always seek prompt
medical care for anyone who's been injured and collect insurance and personal information
from everyone involved in the crash, it's best to keep from discussing the accident
with anyone except the police and an attorney at Banafshe Law Firm. Don't assume
blame or assign it to anyone since this can affect your settlement.
The insurance company will offer you an initial settlement, but their proposal only
takes into account their own interests. They want to settle the claim quickly with
no complications, but no matter how pleasant the adjuster seems, don't make any
decision or sign anything until you've spoken with a personal injury attorney with
Banafshe Law Firm, PC. Statistically, those who have their claims negotiated by
an experienced attorney receive higher settlements than those offered by insurance
companies, who regularly fail to provide any compensation for pain and suffering.
We know the tactics the insurance companies will use to protect their interests,
and we will help you pursue your claim to make sure that all of your interests receive
the attention they deserve so that you can receive the best settlement.
While you recover from your injuries, we can review the police report, interview
potential witnesses, investigate the accident, and build a solid case that includes
compensation for time lost from work, future medical considerations, pain and suffering
and therapy treatments, and other factors that insurance companies typically ignore.
Please contact us for a free initial consultation where we can review your case
and give you an honest appraisal of its strengths and merits. Every case is different,
but our experience with cases that are similar to yours gives us an advantage. The
trucking companies often have lawyers to protect their interests, and it's our job
to make sure that your interests receive just as much consideration.
If you have been involved in an accident, contact Banafshe Law Firm, PC as soon
as possible for a free initial consultation by calling (888) LAW-9991. A delay
may affect the outcome of your settlement. Remember, we advance all costs and we
don’t charge if we don’t collect money for you.
