Driving around big rigs, especially on narrow roads and at high speeds, can be scary and dangerous. If a large truck collision occurs, the outcome can be nothing short of catastrophic for those involved, particularly the occupants of the smaller vehicle. Types of injuries that a victim of a truck accident may sustain include:
Internal injuries, bone fractures, soft tissue injuries, and more are all other possible injury types. Injuries may lead to severe bleeding, as well as damage that is too great to repair. Psychological injuries that result from injuries and the trauma of the crash are also very likely. Injuries can be permanently disabling, expensive to treat, painful, and fatal in the most severe of cases.
If you have been in a Santa Fe truck accident and are dealing with any of the injuries listed above, or others, working with an experienced Sante Fe truck accident lawyer may improve the outcome of your case. The above injuries can result in hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of dollars’ worth of losses in the form of medical expenses, lost wages, property damage costs, and pain, suffering, and emotional distress. While you deserve to be compensated for every penny you have lost, an insurance adjuster will be hesitant to pay out your claim in full; they are more interested in saving the insurance company money. When you have an attorney on your side, your attorney can determine who caused the accident and who should be held liable, handle your claim documents, determine what a fair settlement looks like, and negotiate that settlement on your behalf. An attorney can also prepare your case for litigation if settlement negotiations fail.
Following a severe truck accident that’s caused by the fault of someone other than yourself, such as the truck driver involved, you deserve to be compensated for all of the losses you have suffered. Our truck accident lawyers in Santa Fe know that we can’t change what happened, but we do feel confident in our ability to get you a settlement offer that will pay for your out-of-pocket expenses, as well as your non-economic losses. We work on a contingency fee basis and always offer free consultations, so call us today or send us a message online to get started and get the help you need.
