Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer in Parkersburg, WV
If you've been injured, call the Mike Slocumb Law Firm
There are thousands of businesses in and around Parkersburg, WV. When one of their commercial vehicles is involved in an accident, people can be seriously injured. Recovering financial compensation can be complicated. The truck accident attorneys at the Mike Slocumb Law Firm can help.
There are many different types of commercial vehicles. They include box trucks, cargo vans, refrigerated trucks, flatbed trucks, tankers and tow trucks. A driver may require certain training and qualifications to operate some of these trucks - such as a commercial driver's license (CDL). It only takes one act of negligence to cause an accident, however.
Commercial vehicles are larger than cars and can cause a lot of damage during a collision. Drivers and passengers can be left with injuries to the head, neck or back; broken bones; or even more serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries. Recovery can take months or even years. Some people are left with a permanent disability and may require lifelong care.
Attorneys who know how to get results after your crash
When negligence caused the accident that left you hurt, you deserve financial compensation. The claims process can be difficult. Drivers and business owners deny responsibility for the accident. Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible so they can save money. They may make you a lowball settlement offer, hoping you'll take it and go away.
That's not good enough. Our truck accident attorneys know how to build strong cases that hold negligent parties accountable. We know the games that insurance companies play to try to limit your compensation. We fight to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Our attorneys know how a commercial vehicle accident can impact you and your family. The medical expenses can become overwhelming. You experience a loss of income because you can't go back to work but the usual bills don't stop coming in. Many families find it hard to make ends meet during this difficult time.
That's why we get started on your case right away. We investigate your accident to find out what really happened. Our legal team gathers evidence. We carefully review accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts.
You shouldn't have to settle for less
Our attorneys know how to prove negligence. The driver of the commercial vehicle may have been distracted, speeding, or operating recklessly. The business owners may also be responsible. For example, they may have failed to keep the vehicle properly maintained. Or they may have the driver on an unrealistic delivery schedule.
When insurance companies see that we have put a lot of work into a case and are ready to proceed to trial, they are usually willing to negotiate. We're not interested in making a quick deal to help them save money. Any settlement has to be one that meets your needs. Otherwise, we will fight them in court.
