Finally, one of the most important steps to take is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you. In the moments and days following a serious accident, it can be overwhelming to pick up the pieces and try to put everything back together. Hiring an attorney will help ensure that you don’t miss any important steps or chances for recovering damages for your injuries.
When a commercial vehicle or semi-truck is involved in a motor vehicle accident, it can be difficult to determine what happened and who is responsible for the crash. This makes investigating the accident to get to the root of the issues more complicated and even more important than other accidents. At Bonifield & Rosenstengel, P.C., both of our founding partners were private investigators for personal injury law firms before becoming lawyers. Our legal team is fully equipped with the knowledge, resources, and experience to get to the bottom of every case we take.
Every case is different, with its own unique set of facts. In a semi-truck or tractor-trailer crash, there are a lot of things that could have gone wrong. Likewise, there are a lot of potential people or commercial entities who could ultimately be responsible for the accident. From the negligent driver who fell asleep to the irresponsible trucking company who failed to follow scheduling laws, multiple parties could be at fault. There could even be malfunctioning equipment that was defective or not maintained properly. As a firm founded by, our legal team will leave no stone unturned as they figure out what happened in your case.
Given the enormous size of these vehicles, accidents involving semitrailers are almost always devastating. Trucks carrying heavy loads can collide with other drivers or fail to look for other cars when changing lanes. The truck driver may walk away without a scratch, while the drivers of other vehicles are left with life-altering injuries, including:
In the worst situations, the driver of the other vehicle is killed, leaving loved ones to mourn a death that should have been prevented by greater care and by the driver abiding by safety guidelines.
At Bonifield & Rosenstengel, P.C., our attorneys fight aggressively for justice for those who have lost a loved one in a trucking accident. While monetary rewards cannot bring back your loved one, they can help to provide a sense of justice and closure for those who remain. When the death of your loved one should have been prevented, we hold the responsible parties accountable.
When a truck driver makes a mistake or falls asleep at the wheel, the result is almost always devastating to others on the road. Trucking companies and the drivers of commercial vehicles are required by law to follow strict protocols for operating large tractor-trailers and semi-trucks. These rules regulate how long they can drive, the types of loads they can carry, and how those loads should be balanced in the truck. Following a tractor-trailer crash, our legal team works to hold drivers and their companies accountable for the pain that they have caused and help you recover compensation and the damages you deserve.
