Virginia car accidents involving tractor-trailers can be catastrophic – especially when truck drivers are exceeding the speed limit, driving erratically or driving while fatigued. Unfortunately, trucking companies have insurance adjusters who frequently try to deny or minimize the very real harm you’ve suffered.
As a truck accident victim, you shouldn’t have to deal with unfair treatment by trucking company insurance adjusters who refuse to pay you what you deserve. At Geoff McDonald & Associates, our experienced and aggressive Virginia truck accident lawyers understand how the trucking industry works. We know the tactics that some tractor trailer companies use to intimidate innocent drivers.
Don’t be bullied into settling for less than you are entitled to – call Geoff first. Contact Geoff McDonald & Associates at (804) 888-8888. Our No Fee Guarantee® policy means that you don’t pay us a legal fee unless we win or settle your case.
Keep in mind that Virginia’s statute of limitations requires you to file a personal injury lawsuit within two (2) years of the date of the accident.
Truck Accident Injury Statistics
Truck accident injury statistics are staggering. According to a national study, 3,757 (12%) of all the motor vehicle traffic fatalities involved large trucks (gross vehicle weight rating greater than 10,000 pounds) in 2011.
The average cost of a truck accident is nearly $100,000. Those costs can include medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and more. Add in the extra costs of child care, trips to the doctor’s office for follow up visits, rehabilitation and all of the other “smaller” tasks that need to get accomplished on a daily basis and it starts to add up. That’s why you need an experienced and aggressive truck accident attorney to help you get the compensation you deserve.
What To Do If You’ve Been Involved In A Truck Accident
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident caused by the negligence of another driver, make sure to:
Report the accident to the police and your insurance company;
Seek medical attention – even if you don’t think you were injured in the accident;
Keep records of witness statements, car rental fees, vehicle repairs, medical bills and receipts;
Avoid giving statements to insurers who can hold that information against you;
