Compensation For Truck Accident Injuries
If you or a family member has been in an accident with a semi or any other large truck, you are facing a long recovery and a tough battle for compensation. Trucking companies have commercial insurance carriers that will fight you relentlessly. They employ teams of lawyers and insurance adjusters who get paid to keep the company from paying out compensation to accident victims.
With a lawyer’s help, you can fight back. At Berger & Michelena, our experience taking on insurance companies is a valuable asset. We have litigated thousands of injury cases during our careers and are thoroughly familiar with insurance company tactics.
We Understand Catastrophic Accidents
Any accident with an 18-wheeler, delivery truck, garbage truck, construction vehicle or any other commercial vehicle can result in catastrophic or fatal injuries. People who are in passenger vehicles, on motorcycles or bicycles, or who are pedestrians are at risk for injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Penetrating head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burn injuries
- Broken or crushed bones
- Loss of vision
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Internal injuries
Suffering these types of injuries can cause lifelong medical problems that require long-term medical treatment and/or daily care. The medical expenses will be more than you can pay, even if you have health insurance. You will also need compensation for lost wages and pain and suffering. If you lose a loved one in a trucking accident, you will need compensation for funeral expenses and the personal loss of a family member.
You can rely on our experience and skill with complex injury and wrongful death cases. We will treat you and your family with compassion as we work to recover the compensation you need.
