Truck Accident Attorney In Marshall County
Commercial trucks are large, heavy vehicles. When traveling at fast speeds, they present a grave danger to others on the road. When accidents occur, those in the passenger vehicle are often left with serious, life-threatening injuries.
I am Don Thomas, Attorney At Law. I help those in Benton, Murray, Marshall County and throughout western Kentucky obtain compensation for the medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering caused by accidents with commercial truck drivers.
Standing Up For Your Rights
If you’ve been injured in an accident with a commercial truck, such as a semi, big rig or 18-wheeler, you must act fast to protect your right to compensation. Trucking companies know that accidents often result in large settlements and high jury awards. They often destroy evidence in an attempt to reduce their potential payout.
At my law office, I act quickly to preserve evidence and investigate all of the circumstances surrounding the accident.
I know the tricks trucking companies use to get around federal regulations. Many companies keep two sets of logbooks so drivers can work longer hours without federal interference. Trucking companies also may attempt to destroy GPS devices that hold important information for your case such as the speed the truck was traveling and how many miles were traveled in one day.
I closely examine the trucks and their repair records to determine whether these vehicles were kept in proper working order. I also look into the history of the driver to identify the number of prior tickets and accidents, and determine whether the driver has a history of substance abuse.
Getting You The Compensation You Need To Heal
Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with. They often offer inadequate settlements that don’t even begin to compensate individuals for their injuries. At my law office, I fight for my clients’ rights to compensation.
I have more than 29 years of experience litigating cases in court. The courtroom is like my second home. I am not afraid of a fight, and I won’t back down until insurance companies give my clients the compensation they deserve.
