The injuries suffered in a truck accident can be significant. Many victims end up with permanent disabilities, disfigurement and emotional trauma that lasts a lifetime. The financial ramifications can be overwhelming, too. Unexpected medical expenses, lost wages and rehabilitation costs can eat into an individual’s savings and threaten him or her with financial ruin. This is unacceptable, especially when the accident in question was caused by a negligent trucker.
Fortunately, a personal injury lawsuit may lead to the recovery of compensation and provide victims with a sense of accountability and closure. Yet, as we have discussed previously on the blog, simply suing a trucker may not lead to the full recover a victim expects and deserves. This is because the judgment awarded can far exceed an individual trucker’s ability to pay. This is why a vicarious liability lawsuit may be warranted. This type of claim, often pursued against a truck company, can reach deeper pockets that are more capable of covering the full extent of damages suffered.
Suing a truck company can be a complicated matter, though, which is why those who find themselves contemplating this type of legal action should consider working closely with a skilled legal advocate. At Cohen & Cohen Law Group, we know how to analyze truck accident cases so that pertinent evidence is discovered, key witnesses are identified and compelling legal arguments are crafted. By doing so, we are able to not only make strong arguments for the implementation of liability against truckers, but we also fight to hold their employers accountable.
In addition, we are well adept at presenting evidence that demonstrates the full extent of harm our clients suffer at the hands of negligence. This is the only way to ensure the fullest compensatory recovery possible, which is why we utilize employment and medical records, as well as expert witnesses who can testify as to expected future losses.
In the end, we want our clients to be well taken care of during a time when they are struggling physically, emotionally and financially. To do so, we stand up to truckers and their employers.
