If you were hurt in a truck accident, you might have a lot going through your mind. How will you pay for your hospital bills? Who will help you with lost income? How will you buy food for your family in the coming months while you recover? You are in dire physical pain, but your mind is racing a hundred miles a minute over the consequences of the accident.
You might want to connect with a Middleton truck accident lawyer from GED Lawyers. We can help get your claim started quickly and potentially negotiate a settlement without going to court. You want to protect your family, your job, and your home. The best method is to have someone who knows the law and can collect the compensation you need for your injuries.
I Was Hit by a Truck; What Is My Case Worth?
Every case is different. No personal injury lawyer can give you an estimated number of what your case is worth. A lot goes into calculating what your compensation includes. There are two forms of recoverable damages: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are usually those things you can find a receipt for, like hospital bills or car repairs. Non-economic damages don’t have receipts and cover things like pain and suffering, a disfiguring scar, loss of a limb, or loss of enjoyment of life.
Your attorney will carefully collect all your medical bills, lost income information, and other losses. In addition, your lawyer will include in your case documentation of your injuries, their impact on your life, and the amount of pain and suffering they cause. Finally, with all this in mind, your attorney will discuss what would be a reasonable settlement amount for your unique case with you.
Wrongful Death Damages for a Fatal Middleton Truck Accident
Some truck accident victims do not survive their injuries. If your family member died in a Middleton truck accident, you may be able to take legal action on their behalf.
Losing someone in a truck crash not only leads to terrible grief and emotional anguish, but also significant financial losses. Our lawyers can provide compassionate support and legal advice during a wrongful death case.
We can help you fight for compensation for losses such as:
- Lost income and financial support
- Lost services
- Lost inheritance
- Lost companionship, care, and instruction
- Medical bills from between the crash and your loved one’s death
- Funeral and burial costs
Our firm extends our sincere condolences for your loss. While we know that recovering fair compensation does not make up for your loss, it can provide your family with some financial stability. As your legal representation, we will not back down in our fight for you.
How Will a Law Firm Benefit My Truck Accident Case?
Law firms benefit their clients by helping them return to the state of being they were in before the accident. One huge benefit of hiring a legal advocate is peace of mind. When dealing with substantial injuries, lost income, and challenging life changes—the last thing you need is additional stress.
So why not let someone else collect the evidence, the records, the testimony, file the claims, and handle all the details to get your life back on track?
When you have one of our attorneys to represent your case, you can put your focus on yourself and your family. You can take time to heal. Attorneys develop the data required to handle negotiations on your behalf, so your settlement will cover everything you need.
Our team has wide-ranging personal injury experience and we have secured many positive outcomes for injured clients and their families. Our case results even include a $7,130,000 verdict in a commercial trucking accident case. Allow our team to handle all the legal details of your case.
Tasks We Can Handle for Your Case
When you retain one of our personal injury lawyers to take your case, we can help you with the following:
- Interview any available witnesses
- File subpoenas for testimony
- Collect evidence at the scene
- Obtain records on the driver’s work and safety history
- Collect data on the transportation company’s safety record
- Review police accident reports
- Work with accident reconstruction specialists
- Study the truck driver’s daily log
- Review phone records of the driver
Going through an extensive case against a trucking company can be challenging. However, counsel may be able to negotiate a settlement without going to court. An accident with a commercial tractor-trailer can be a life-altering experience. Having our attorney on your team provides a fair footing at the negotiating table. After all, the driver who hit you may have a team of professionals on their side.
I’m Out of Work. How Can I Afford a Lawyer From Your Firm?
Getting hit by a commercial vehicle can leave devastating injuries. If you are worried that you cannot afford legal help because you are currently out of work due to your injuries, please don’t let that stop you.
The personal injury attorneys with GED Lawyers work on a contingency-fee basis. This means that we only collect a fee if you win your case. Therefore, you do not need any upfront money to hire us to represent you.
Don’t sell yourself and your case short. The insurance company will negotiate to give you the smallest settlement possible. Your injuries could last for years and cost you a great deal. Make sure you have professionals on your side who can represent your case and fight for fair compensation for your injuries. It is your future and your family’s future on the line.
Are There Time Limits To File My Case in Massachusetts?
Yes. Mass. Gen. Laws Ch. 260 § 2A covers time limits for filing personal injury cases. According to the statute, you have up to three years to bring a suit in a truck accident. When you are first involved in an accident, you are injured, and you have a lot of adrenaline coursing through your body. However, the accident isn’t the time to make any decisions.
However, it is to your advantage to call us as soon as possible after your accident. Even though the state does allow you three years, the sooner your attorney can get started, the better. Often, evidence can be lost over time.
Some evidence for your case that your attorney would help collect would be witness testimony. If you delay, witness memories fade. Witnesses could also move to another area and be unreachable.
What Steps Should I Take After My Middleton Accident?
Immediately after an accident, there are several steps you can take to benefit your case. First, you may have to call a friend or family member to help you. If you are injured, you need to center your attention on getting well first. Getting medical attention should be your priority. You must seek medical attention soon after your accident, if not immediately after. In addition, do the following:
- Call 911
- Be sure that you are clear of danger
- Ask that a police report be taken
- Get the driver’s information and insurance
- Take photos of the scene (ask for help if injured)
- Do not answer questions about the accident
- Look for eyewitnesses and ask for contact information
- Contact our firm
