Danville Trucking Accident Lawyers
Virginia highways are busier than ever. Much of that traffic is made up of commercial trucks rushing to deliver products to homes and businesses.
The experienced legal team at the law firm of Haymore & Holland, P.C., in Danville, Virginia, understands how an accident with a tractor-trailer, a bus or other large commercial vehicle can instantly change someone’s life.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash involving a semitrailer, you may face a lengthy hospital stay or extensive rehabilitation and all of the bills that come with it. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, long-term rehabilitation expenses, and pain and suffering.
Our Danville trucking accident attorneys represent clients in tractor trailer accidents, including those on these highly-trafficked routes:
- US HWY 29
- US HWY 58
- US HWY 265
The Transportation Industry Is Highly Regulated
Commercial drivers and their employers must adhere to numerous regulations regarding the operation of trucks. These include stipulations about vehicle maintenance and weight, as well as strict rules limiting how many hours a driver can log without an extended rest. If you are involved in an accident with a semi-truck, it is important to contact a lawyer who has thorough knowledge of these regulations and what role they play in your case.
A Strong Case Starts With A Strong Investigation
We have access to highly skilled accident investigators who will review police reports and conduct their own investigation, including reconstructing the accident to help build a strong case. We also work closely with medical specialists who will confirm the seriousness of your injuries and spell out the total cost of your rehabilitation.
You may find that the company whose truck was involved in the accident may pressure you to reach a quick settlement or, conversely, has a team of legal professionals and an insurance provider who are ready to fight against your claim. Our attorneys have faced both of these situations and are not intimidated by either.
While it is true that we often reach a favorable settlement without the need for a court trial, we understand that obtaining a full and fair amount for our clients rests on our reputation of always being prepared and willing to proceed to trial if necessary.
