COMMERCIAL TRUCKING & MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Motor Vehicle Accidents
In the United States, a motor vehicle accident occurs about every 60 seconds, equating to roughly 5.25 million accidents per year. Being involved in a motor vehicle collision is very common, but with misguided efforts, your likelihood of success in a personal injury claim or lawsuit diminishes.
A serious car, truck or motorcycle collision can happen when you least expect it—at crowded intersections, on city streets and/or busy highways. Unfortunately, these collisions can cause catastrophic injuries that can instantly turn lives in different directions. Understanding your rights, negligence of others, and your position in the collision as well as taking swift action to seek legal remedies is imperative. Kanani Law Firm will help you navigate the complexities of these matters from beginning to end.
The General Process:
- Initiate a thorough investigation
- Record any and all injuries
- Manage communication with parties involved
- Identify every potential claim
- Create a strong trial strategy
- Consult with solid experts
- Aggressively litigate for fair and maximum compensation
Trucking accidents often cause catastrophic and/or fatal injuries to other drivers on the roads. Traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, fractured bones, coma, paralysis, disfigurement, mental anguish, diminished capacity to labor, fatality and other permanent injuries are often left in the wake of these serious collisions on busy roads and highways.
Every trucking company has a duty to employ qualified truck drivers who must follow federal and state rules and regulations. If a truck driver deviates from those rules and regulations, which are commercial drivers’ industry standards, and consequently causes a collision where you are injured, that truck driver as well as his/her employer (i.e. the trucking company) are liable for the resulting damages to you.
We ensure the correct procedures take place in order to preserve necessary evidence as it relates to the truck driver, the truck itself, the employer/trucking company, witnesses, etc. Oftentimes, lack of rest, fatigue, distraction, drugs and/or alcohol, reckless driving and other factors play a role in the causation of the collision. Figuring out and knowing the “why’s” is key in successfully litigating trucking cases.
While no amount of money can truly compensate for your loss, we will seek the justice you deserve and fight for your deserved compensation.
