Experienced Everett Truck Accident Lawyers

Collisions between cars and commercial trucks are among the most devastating accidents that can happen. Because of the massive size of commercial trucks, the injuries resulting from these accidents are often much worse than in ordinary car accidents. When you’ve been injured in a truck accident, you may have huge medical bills. You are likely unable to return to work right away. You have doctor appointments, and somehow you have to take care of your family. The last thing you need is to worry about insurance companies. That’s why you need an experienced truck accident lawyer on your side.

Catastrophic Injuries From Truck Wrecks

At the Dubin Law Group our Everett truck accident lawyers have seen all kids of injuries from collisions with commercial trucks. Among the most common injuries from truck accidents are:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken bones
  • Herniated disc
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death

We know that when you or a loved one has been injured in a collision with a truck, you need medical treatment now. We work with the available insurance companies and your doctors to make sure you get the treatment you need when you need it.

Special Issues Involving Truck Accidents

Commercial truck drivers are subject to many laws and regulations that don’t apply to drivers of ordinary passenger cars. There are limits on how much they can drive in a given time period. They are required to keep log books of their mileage and their time behind the wheel. There are maintenance and recordkeeping requirements for the trucks themselves. A lawyer without experience dealing with truck accidents could miss something important that could be fatal to your truck accident claim.

At the Dubin Law Group we know truck accidents. Once we are hired we act immediately to preserve key evidence that will support your claim. We work with top tucking experts and accident reconstructionists to make sure you can prove your case in court. Often doing this is enough to persuade the truck insurance company to make a fair offer, but if the insurance company refuses to deal fairly, they know we are prepared to do what it takes to get justice for our clients.

Putting our experience and resources to work for our clients, here at the Dubin Law Group, we investigate every aspect of these devastating accidents. Regulations limit the number of hours commercial drivers can be behind the wheel, but when they are under pressure to deliver cargo, some drivers ignore these and push themselves to the point of fatigue, putting everyone on the road in danger. Sometimes trucking companies will skip necessary maintenance of their fleet of trucks in order to save money. We understand the federal and industry regulations governing truck drivers and trucking companies, and we know how to hold them accountable. We often retain the top trucking experts and accident reconstructionists to make sure we can prove your case in court.

After a collision with a truck, you probably have many questions – who will pay your medical bills and lost income? Who should you speak to on the phone? What documents should you sign? The reality is that most people don’t know what to do after being injured in a truck accident. That’s where we come in. We know your rights, and we will do what it takes to make sure you and your family are protected after being involved in a truck accident.

Often there are multiple insurance companies involved in these claims. While you focus on getting your life back to normal, we deal with the adjusters, attorneys, and investigators who do all they can to pay as little as possible. Regulations require large truck operators to carry ample insurance, often at least $1,000,000. Recovery in these cases is rarely limited by inadequate insurance as it often can be in accidents involving passenger vehicles. Sometimes commercial insurance companies quickly send representatives to the scene of accidents to mitigate responsibility and avoid large payouts. This is when injury victims are most vulnerable. Do not let their scare tactics deprive you of the settlement you deserve.

Damages In Truck Accidents

When you’ve been hurt in a truck accident, you are entitled to more than just your medical bills. At the Dubin Law Group, we know every single element of damages the law allows you to recover, and we will fight for all of it. Some of the damages you are entitled to recover include:

  • Medical bills (past and future)
  • Other expenses
  • Physical pain (past and future)
  • Emotional distress (past and future)
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

In the case of a wrongful death, the estate has a claim for the pain and suffering of your lost family member, while the surviving dependents have a claim for the loss of their loved one.
