Last week on the blog, we discussed the regulations imposed by the federal government on trucking hours. Adherence to these rules is critical to help prevent truck accidents, as overtired truckers may fail to drive under the speed limit, maintain their lane, and yield to oncoming traffic when appropriate. Truckers who nod off behind the wheel can also fail to brake for slowed or stopped traffic, and they may blow through red lights, stop signs, and crosswalks. Tragically, these instances occur all too frequently, and many innocent individuals suffer serious injuries as a result.
As we have discussed previously, recovering in the aftermath of a truck accident can be challenging. The physical pain and suffering, the lost wages, and the medical expenses can leave a victim stressed and overwhelmed. Although they may think about pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, these individuals may not know how best to go about trying to recover the full extent of their damages.
Our attorneys at Murphy & Landon PA know that truck accident victims can face significant losses, and we tailor our approach toward recovering as much compensation as we can, given the circumstances. First, of course, we work with our clients to gather and put forth the strongest evidence available in hopes of convincing a judge and jury to impose liability not only on negligent drivers, but also on negligent truck companies. Once that is achieved, we then turn our attention to portraying the full extent of harm suffered.
Our individualized approach to each and every case we handle is something that many firms say they offer, but it is a promise that very few can live up to. But, we are able to do so because we are truly invested in our clients. We understand the difficulties they are going through, and we fight for them as if we are fighting for our own health and well-being. This passion and aggression is something that sets us apart from the rest and has helped us achieve the track record that we have today.
