Fast action is important if you or a loved one has been hurt in a tractor-trailer accident. The trucking company has likely already begun investigating the accident and building a defense strategy to avoid having to pay compensation. At Smith & Griffith, LLP, our Anderson truck accident lawyer will move just as quickly to protect your rights and to pursue the compensation you need to cover medical bills and more.
The High Cost Of Truck Accidents
Semi trucks are massive, meaning that when they collide with cars, those in the car are much more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries. You need an attorney who has a record of success getting compensation for people whose lives have been changed because of brain injuries, neck injuries, back injuries and other severe injuries. You can find that attorney at our law firm.
We know that the medical bills you have already accumulated may grow. Depending on the seriousness of the injuries, you may not even be able to return to your old job or may be forced into a career that pays less. Our goal is to get you the money you need to cover all expenses related to the truck accident – past, present and future.
Causes Of Truck Accidents
We will investigate to determine what caused the truck accident. Perhaps the truck driver was speeding. Perhaps the driver was fatigued. Often commercial truck drivers drive beyond allowable hours in direct violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Rules and Regulations. Perhaps there was something less obvious at play, such as a mechanical defect or maintenance error. Whatever the cause, we will gather the evidence we need to prove fault and build a strong case.
