A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds out on the open road. Trucks travel fast, often dominating roadways that are shared by much smaller vehicles. Some of them are reckless, driving tired or doing other things besides paying attention to the road. As a result, truck accidents are notorious for changing the lives of the people involved in accidents with them.
At The Law Offices of Scott N. Bergman, LLC, we represent people whose lives have been changed by truck accidents in the Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the surrounding DMV metro area. Our clients include people who have experienced soft tissue injuries to severe injuries which may include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, impairment and/or paralysis, lost limbs, broken bones, scarring, burning and/or disfigurement. We also represent the surviving family members of people who have been unfortunately killed from truck accidents.
Attorneys at our firm represent people who have been injured in accidents involving many different types of commercial trucks and other large vehicles, including:
- Cargo vans
- Delivery trucks
- Construction trucks/equipment
What To Expect When We Take Your Semi-truck Accident Or Injury Case
When we take your truck accident case, we start by conducting a thorough review of the evidence. We obtain the police report, photographs, talk with witnesses, and we can send investigators to the scene of the accident to review what happened. We can hire reconstruction specialists as experts, if necessary. We will have you medically evaluated, treated and conduct an extensive review of your medical records and past medical history so we can build a strong case on your behalf against the powerful insurance company and its insured.
Our Law Firm uses in-depth knowledge of the law as well as an extensive medical understanding to aggressively and effectively bring cases to settlement or if necessary to Court. We fully prepare personal injury cases for trial, while negotiating full and fair settlements when the insurance company only opens the door to settlement. Since our opponents know that we are prepared to try our clients’ cases, they are often more willing to settle for higher amounts to avoid the risk of potentially losing more in Court and having their insured exposed to a public verdict and judgment on the record. Of course, whether we settle or go to Court is always our client’s decision, but we will talk with our clients about their options and help you choose the best course of action.
If you or someone you love has been hit by a truck, semi and/or tractor-trailer, make sure to get needed medical attention as quickly as possible. Then, contact our Firm to speak with an Attorney, even if you live out of the area. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can begin working on your behalf and get you back on the right path to get your life back in order.
