Truck Accidents Can Be Life-Changing
We Are Ready to Fight Insurance Companies on Your Behalf
Because of their size and weight, collisions involving trucks may involve catastrophic injuries. If you are injured in an accident involving a tractor-trailer, your life may never get back to the way it was before the accident. The legal team at Olsen & Oliver, PLLC, in Paducah is ready to advocate aggressively on your behalf.
Due to the unique safety concerns posed by vehicles weighing as much as 80,000 pounds, numerous state and federal regulations exist to help protect our roadways. A thorough investigation of all the circumstances that led to your accident can be invaluable in ascertaining the negligence of the trucking company and protecting your right to full compensation. Because truck accident cases may involve serious physical injuries, and even death, trucking companies are usually quick to protect their interests. Make sure you have someone to protect yours.
Insurance Companies Are Not Out To Help You
As soon as a truck accident happens, the trucking company or its insurance company will begin an investigation. The goal of this investigation is to protect their financial interests, not yours. Without a lawyer to investigate your claim and protect your rights, you may end up with less money than you need to pay medical bills, replace lost wages and compensate you for your pain and suffering. At our law office in Paducah, Kentucky, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
We Investigate Truck Accidents
In the aftermath of a truck accident, you may not know who was at fault. As your lawyer, we will investigate the accident to find out what happened and who is responsible. Often, truck accidents are caused by negligence such as unsafe loading, driver fatigue or lack of vehicle maintenance. Only through a complete investigation by a knowledgeable attorney can you be assured that the necessary facts are gathered and fair compensation is received.
It's important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a truck accident, because evidence gathering doesn't just begin when a lawsuit is filed, it begins as soon as you've retained counsel.
