Excellent Representation Following An On-The-Job Car or Truck Accident
Vehicle accidents are among the worst injuries in the US workforce today. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 35 percent of occupational fatalities are from auto accidents. When a worker is injured through a car or truck accident, employers are left with the burden of medical bills and other financial issues, such as a loss of income if he or she is unable to return to work right away. Through a thorough investigation, your personal attorney will help you fight your claim in order to grant you a fair compensation.
If You’re A Passenger Injured in A Company Vehicle
One common situation that occurs in vehicle-related accidents is passenger injuries. As a passenger, you should not be held responsible for the accident unless there is an attempt to prove you were a distraction or somehow purposely caused the accident. As with any personal injury claim, there will be a need to assess the situation as it played out to fully establish the details of the accident.
If you were the passenger involved in a vehicle accident, here’s what you should do:
- 1. Contact an experienced vehicle accident attorney.
- 2. File a passenger injury claim.
- 3. Seek a fair compensation to cover medical treatments.
What To Do If You’re Involved In A Faulty Commercial Truck Accident
Commercial truck accidents are not handled in the same manner as passenger vehicles. There are several barriers that insurers will review when determining if the driver of the commercial vehicle is responsible or considered a victim. The damages that occur in these types of accidents tend to be extremely heavy given the impact of the truck’s size and weight. As a driver of a commercial vehicle, one of the first steps you should take is to contact an experienced attorney who can help investigate the scene. We stress the importance of this step because any wrong move can have negative repercussions on your end. Providing sufficient evidence to prove that you are not at fault will be vital in your claim.
