Fighting for your Rights
Trucking companies have attorney on their payroll who go to work right away whenever there is an accident. They will promise to pay you quickly and do everything in their power to get you to settle. Their top priority is minimizing their payout, not making sure you have the financial resources needed to cover your damages. It is important to have a high-powered legal team on your side who will make sure the trucking company, their insurance carrier, and their lawyer do not take advantage of you.
