Navigating The Aftermath Of A Truck Collision
As a common thoroughfare of the commercial trucking industry, Wyoming is no stranger to truck accidents. Nearly every other day, news of a truck wreck can be found in the media in tandem with the numbers of fatalities or injuries they have caused. But just because they frequently happen does not mean that you must accept the consequences.
If you were seriously injured or lost a loved one to a trucking accident, get medical help immediately and then reach out to us at once. Your recovery depends on having a strong legal and medical team to guide you through. At the Law Office of Shelly Kay Flot, PC, we help you pursue maximum compensation for your catastrophic injuries or those suffered by a family member.
You Can Hold Drivers And Their Companies Accountable
With their large size and heavy loads, trucks are formidable. A collision with a semitruck rarely ends in favor of a passenger car. This is why it is crucial that drivers who operate these types of commercial vehicles have the credentials and skills to safely handle them. While accidents do happen, they are usually preventable by drivers and their companies.
Common errors we have seen lead to an accident often include:
- A truck driver driving despite fatigue
- Drivers ignoring speed limits
- Driving too fast for weather conditions
- Pressure from delivery deadlines
- Poorly maintained vehicles
- Inadequate training for drivers
- Not vetting drivers before hiring
When an accident results from an error made by the driver or their company, you and your family should not have to suffer. Recover the damages you deserve with our help today. You may also want to check with your own insurance, which could help pay for certain costs related to the accident.
Your Settlement Should Not Cost You More Money
Through our work in personal injury law over the last 30 years, we have crafted and perfected our methods. We know that the key to an efficient and effective resolution often lies in an approach that does not take place in the courtroom. Instead, we strive to use alternative methods to resolve your disputes and, in doing so, help you obtain a full and fair recovery.
