If you are injured in a collision with a semi-truck or another large commercial vehicle, you need an attorney who has experience with these cases to help you obtain the compensation you deserve. In addition to understanding the trucking industry inside and out, Hunter Law Firm has extensive experience assisting tractor-trailer accident victims throughout Virginia.
Whether you plan on taking legal action against a truck driver, trucking company or vehicle manufacturer, the defendant will undoubtedly have their own counsel. As a result, it is vital to your case that you retain a formidable team of personal injury attorneys. Aggressive and unyielding, Hunter Law Firm is prepared to fight zealously on your behalf. We have offices in Hampton, Chesapeake, Newport News and Gloucester to give area truck accident victims the comprehensive legal support they deserve.
There may be more than one available option for pursuing your case — from an insurance claim for minor injuries to a jury trial when injuries are severe or result in permanent disability. If you were hurt while driving for your job, it is important to remember that you might be able to bring a third-party personal injury claim against the negligent truck driver to obtain damages in addition to the benefits provided by workers’ compensation coverage. In your initial consultation, one of our accomplished attorneys will discuss the details of your case and review all evidence you may have gathered to help determine which options make the most sense for your case.
Our attorneys recognize the pain you are experiencing. Collisions with large commercial trucks often result in severe injuries to the passengers of smaller vehicles. We always try to find the least stressful solution that can help you recover the expenses related to your injuries in full. Our firm will present the advantages and disadvantages of each option to help you avoid making a decision that may result in additional out-of-pocket expenses.
