Why Hire Our Forked Island 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyer?
Having someone who’s an advocate for you every step of the way can make the whole process much easier. Our top priority would be to make sure we recover as much compensation for you as we can. We want to help you get through what may be a difficult time by treating you with dignity and respect during the process.
Our job is to try to recover compensation that accounts for what you’ve lost. In order to do this, we’ll build a case to show that you were the victim and testify to the damage the accident caused you.
We Will Use the Evidence We Gather to Support Your Case
One of our most important roles as your legal representatives is to investigate. By visiting the accident scene, issuing subpoenas, or gathering video footage and photos, we can determine what caused the accident and who is at fault. This is a critical step in securing your compensation, as we must file against the appropriate at-fault party to have a valid case.
We Will Negotiate for Your Financial Award
Once we demonstrate who is at fault and how they contributed to your losses, we can begin negotiating for what you deserve. We will create a comprehensive estimate of what you’ve lost, what you stand to lose, and what you’re suffering. These things will become a starting point for our negotiations. We will uphold communications with the insurer to come to an agreement on a financial award that will improve your quality of life.
We Will Do What is Lawfully Possible to Win Your Case
It’s not uncommon for insurance companies to attempt to settle quickly with a low but tempting offer. We know that these settlements don’t go far for victims who are drowning in medical bills and other debts. We will fight off manipulative tactics and low offers to get compensation that will actually improve your financial situation.
If the liable party refuses to negotiate in good faith, we will take them to court. It’s possible your lawyer may decide that this step is necessary for other reasons. Whatever the case, we will make sure you are prepared for court proceedings if we are forced to litigate. We will fight for your rights in front of a judge or jury, especially for a fair financial award.

What You Could Be Compensated For
Any expense you’ve incurred because of the accident is something we can pursue. The party that caused the accident is responsible for paying the costs of any victims in the form of recoverable damages.
These could include:
- Medical expenses
- Prescription medicine
- Damage to your vehicle
- Lost present and future wages
We may also pursue damages for things that don’t necessarily have a clear financial cost. These often include consequences of the accident that are detrimental to your mental health, and they are commonly referred to as “pain and suffering.”
Some examples of personal, non-economic damages include:
- Decreased quality of life
- Mental and emotional distress
- Physical pain
- Physical impairment and loss of independence
When you’re suffering after a serious accident, it can be hard to see all of the negative effects. Our team would love to talk with you to figure out how this accident has changed and affected you, so we can pursue appropriate compensation for everything you’ve lost.
You Have a Limited Amount of Time to File a Lawsuit
After one year has passed following the date of the accident (or the date of your loved one’s passing), you may not be able to file at all. Filing past the deadline puts your case at risk of being barred or thrown out. If either of these happens, you will lose your right to compensation. Our team wants to help prevent this from happening by tracking and fulfilling legal requirements like these.
