Seek the Compensation You Deserve
Trucking accidents are not like other accidents. Semi-trucks, big rigs, and other large commercial vehicles are heavy and powerful. When they collide with your vehicle, the damage is often more severe then what you’d experience in a car accident. In 2017, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, an estimated 116,000 injury crashes involving large trucks and buses occurred, and the number of fatal accidents rose three percent between 2016 and 2017. This was the highest such rate in nearly three decades.

The sheer size of commercial trucks and other large vehicles typically lead to more property damage and harsher personal injuries. This can lead to a lot of expenses that you shouldn’t have to pay if not at fault for the trucking accident. However, filing a truck accident claim is complicated for a number of reasons. It’s not always the driver who’s responsible for compensation, there are additional laws to review for negligence, and the big insurance companies hired by trucking companies can be tough to deal with.
Trucking companies are quick to mobilize their attorneys and insurance companies for damage control. They want to make you go away, but we won’t let them.
Why is it Beneficial to Hire a Truck Accident Attorney?
Hiring an experienced attorney to help with your trucking accident case is essential to protect your best interests. In cases that involve large commercial vehicles, the defendant is very likely to be a major corporation or insurance company. These entities have significant resources and will have investigators on the scene of the accident almost immediately. If you attempt to deal with them directly, you are at a serious disadvantage – and they know it. At Farah & Farah, we have the ability to go toe-to-toe with such organizations, match their resources, and make sure they treat you fairly. We can launch our own investigation, preserve vital evidence, such as the truck’s black box and driver logs, and get to the bottom of how and why you were struck by the truck.
Laws are different in trucking accidents.
Did you know that it’s often not the truck driver who’s totally responsible in a trucking accident? In some situations, the trucking company itself, the manufacturer of a certain part, or even the company handling the truck’s maintenance could be held partially liable. Your Jacksonville truck accident attorney at Farah & Farah is able to properly review and evaluate your particular situation to know who to approach for compensation based on laws and regulations. They’ll protect your interests throughout the process, even if a settlement can’t be reached out of court and they’ll work tirelessly to get you the best outcome possible for your case.
Don’t settle without support.
Oftentimes a trucking company’s insurance company will rush to offer you a settlement to simply close your case. It’s not what you deserve, but they’ll try to convince you it’s all you’ll get. It’s not true. Your health and well-being is worth fighting for, so don’t settle without consulting an experienced truck accident attorney. The trucking accident attorneys at Farah & Farah won’t back down from the challenges of negotiating your case. We will go after all the liable sources in order to seek the best result possible.
