After all, you can turn on the news any day of the week to hear about the tragic aftermath of a recent truck collision.

All trucking companies and truck drivers are required to obey strict state and federal laws. As such, both parties may face severe legal consequences if a truck accident victim is killed or catastrophically injured. Unfortunately, trucking companies aren’t above ignoring regulations and disregarding potential penalties if it means making a profit. As a result, truck drivers often participate in unsafe driving habits because they are constantly pressured to meet unrealistic deadlines.

Before you file a personal injury claim, it’s important to first discuss your case with an experienced legal representative who can investigate the accident and accurately identify the negligent parties.

It’s important to remember that an insurance company is, above all else, a company. Its main business is making and saving money. When an accident is reported, you can be certain that the defendant’s insurance company is already actively investigating the incident and preparing multiple strategies for a variety of contingencies. If you don’t have legal representation, the insurance company may trick you into accepting a meager settlement that doesn’t account for the true extent of your financial needs. Worse, they may call you directly and coerce you into making a statement that completely undermines your claim. At Kempton & Russell, our experienced and aggressive lawyers can protect your claim by negotiating with the insurance company to ensure that you’re offered a settlement that safeguards your standard of living.
