Truck Accident

Why You Need an Experienced Lawyer After a Truck Accident

Truck accidents are stressful, painful, traumatic, disabling, and even potentially fatal. Although all auto accidents have the potential to cause serious injuries, truck accidents are unique because of the massive size disparity between semis and passenger vehicles. Even the largest pickup trucks and SUVs are minuscule compared to a fully-loaded tractor trailer, which can weigh up to 80,000 pounds!

If you or someone you love was recently hurt in a truck accident, you need two things right now: comprehensive medical care and an experienced legal team. And at Skolrood Law Firm, it’s our goal to provide the latter to you. Our Roanoke truck accident lawyers know the ins and outs of the trucking industry, including what truck drivers, owners, and companies can be held liable for after crashes.

It’s important to get in touch with us right away after your truck accident. In addition to a statute of limitations that can expire and make you ineligible for compensation, you also run the risk of evidence disappearing if you wait too long. And finally, trucking companies, their insurers, and their lawyers almost always fight back against injury claims, and if you give them a big head start, it can be difficult to win your claim.

When you call our firm, we’ll begin collecting evidence that shows you weren’t at fault and calculating how much money you’re owed for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. And we won’t just consider what you’ve lost today—we’ll calculate how the crash will continue costing you years down the road. Call today for a free consultation.
