Virginia Truck Accident Lawyers Fight to Maximize Compensation

Hampton Roads firm offers experienced representation for injured clients

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, Williamsburg and Gloucester to give area truck accident victims the comprehensive legal support they deserve.

Prompt legal assistance from skillful vehicle crash litigators

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.

Factors that can cause a commercial vehicle collision

If you’re injured in an accident caused by an 18-wheeler, Hunter Law Firm will conduct a thorough investigation into the causes of the collision. Our personal injury lawyers know that liability may extend beyond the truck driver and involve:

  • Truck inspection and maintenance — A truck should undergo an inspection before every run. If brakes of the tractor-trailer are in need of repair or if the tires need to be replaced, these could be the cause of the accident. After analyzing the evidence, we might be able to prove liability on the part of those responsible.
  • Preparation of the load — Your lawyer may discover evidence that the cargo was improperly loaded, and the imbalance may have caused the driver to lose control.
  • Unrealistic delivery schedules — When customer demands cause trucking companies or customers to set overly optimistic delivery schedules, our attorneys may uncover records showing that drivers failed to observe the legal requirements for rest breaks.

It is critical that your lawyer has the trucking operation knowledge to thoroughly investigate all evidence and unravel the true causes of an accident. The personal injury attorneys at Hunter Law Firm have the skills, experience and dedication to develop the most detailed case to support your claim.

Injuries frequently associated with truck accidents

The size, weight and force of a big rig make it much more dangerous than a passenger car if a crash occurs. Even if the truck was not traveling at a very high speed, a catastrophic injury could result. Victims of severe injuries face months, or maybe years, of recuperation and rehabilitation. In some cases, full recovery is not possible. Potential injuries in a truck accident include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Burns
  • Muscle and ligament damage
  • Loss of limbs

In these cases, as well as wrongful death claims following fatal truck collisions, our firm is committed to helping Virginians maximize their compensation in a verdict or settlement.
