Compensation for Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Our first priority is to get you proper medical care. Victims who survive a truck accident may have major injuries requiring years of recovery or a lifetime of care. Through consultation with medical experts, we help families determine a life care plan that covers future surgery, physical therapy, home modifications and other long-term needs, including at-home nursing help and other aides. Victims can also collect for medical expenses, lost wages and future earning potential, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment. In wrongful death claims, we represent family members in recovering damages for lost income, loss of companionship of the loved one, and for emotional distress.
