In Massachusetts, victims of tractor trailer and/or commercial truck accidents can suffer serious injuries, can incur significant medical expenses and can lose substantial income resulting from those injuries. Any time you have been the victim of an accident involving a truck, you should consult an experienced attorney who can help assist you in recovering fair compensation under the circumstances.
By the time you consult with a personal injury lawyer, the damage has already occurred. Your goal should be to get healthy while your personal injury lawyer’s goal should be to put you back in the position you would have been had the accident never happened (i.e., present and future medical expenses, lost earnings, out of pocket expenses, and compensation for the loss of enjoyment during the period of your accident related disability). An experienced personal injury lawyer knows where to look for such recovery.
Even if the at fault party does not have adequate insurance to cover your injuries, a experienced personal injury attorney will know where to look for additional coverage and/or compensation for your serious injuries
Because of its size and weight, a truck is more dangerous than an automobile and generally, people must be specially licensed to drive them and are subject to more stringent rules governing the operation of a truck. An experienced personal injury lawyer will help you discover facts, including but not limited to, whether the truck driver operated safely, whether the driver was properly certified to operate a truck o that kind, and/or whether the truck’s owner should have entrusted said driver with the operation of such a dangerous vehicle.
In some instances a person injured while loading or unloading a truck or other commercial/construction vehicle may not be covered by no-fault benefits. In these instances an experienced personal injury lawyer should be consulted to determine which insurance benefits, such as worker’s compensation, are applicable and to assist you with finding other potentially liable parties.
