Tractor Trailers Accident Attorneys
Truck Accident Attorneys in Central Virginia
The most common cause of tractor-trailer truck collisions is truck driver negligence, such as following too closely, failing to yield, improperly changing lanes, making improper turns, speeding, or running red lights. Additionally, a number of truck collisions involve sleeping, fatigued and/or ill drivers.
Compared to collisions between similarly sized vehicles, being involved in a collision with a truck often results in severely traumatic injuries to car occupants. The chances of fatal injuries are also much higher, given the size and weight of the truck. If you or your loved ones have been involved in an accident where a truck collided with your vehicle, then you should get in touch with an experienced trucking accident attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you contact us, the easier it’s going to be for you to share important details of the accident that may be forgotten over time. The information you provide our truck accident attorneys can form the basis of a well-founded case.
Accidents involving tractor trailers should be carefully handled by attorneys with the specialized skills and experience to protect you from trucking companies and their resources. Those companies, to protect their own best interests, will often deploy investigators to a crash site immediately in order to build a case that the accident was not caused by the truck driver.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury through no fault of your own, call our office today. Our experienced attorneys are here to review the facts of your case and evaluate the best strategy to obtain compensation and reimbursement for your injuries. With over forty years of helping clients move forward after a personal injury, Gilliam & Mikula offers a team of private investigators, paralegals, and attorneys that are responsive, compassionate, and committed. From the moment you or a loved one contact our firm, we begin our investigation process and design a personalized plan for advocating for your rights moving forward. Our personal injury matters are handled on a contingency fee basis, so the stress of affording competent representation is taken off you and your family’s shoulders.
A personal injury claim can hold the other driver responsible for their negligent driving. While many insurance companies will contact you as early as the day after a crash, dealing with the other driver’s insurance company yourself will often get you nowhere. Gilliam & Mikula can help you investigate your case, draft legal arguments, and advocate for your side in court. Our attorneys’ services include, but are not limited to, the following:
Recovering damages from other drivers’ insurance companies
Pursuing uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage and medical coverage from yours, your loved ones’, or your employer’s insurance company
Negotiating fair settlements
Collecting evidence to protect your claims for appropriate compensation
Gilliam & Mikula is here to help you get the answers you and your loved ones deserve
