There are few experiences more terrifying than being involved in an auto accident. High speeds and distracted driving make it all too easy to be left dealing with life-altering injuries as a result of a car crash. However, with help from the right personal accident lawyer, you can focus on healing and taking care of yourself instead of suffering additional stress due to finances. Get the settlement you need and deserve when you work with passionate auto injury lawyers like Peterford Law.
While all auto accidents are dangerous and stressful, being involved in an accident with a large vehicle like a big rig can be truly traumatic. Because these vehicles cannot steer or brake as quickly as others, and are heavier and longer than others, accidents involving big rigs are both unfortunately common and particularly devastating in terms of damage. Large trucks are more likely to be involved in rollover accidents, which can mean many additional victims and extremely high speeds. All of these factors mean that if you’ve been involved in a big rig accident, it’s likely that the aftermath is full of trauma and medical appointments.
You shouldn’t have to face the aftermath of an accident involving a big rig alone. Getting the financial settlement you deserve can help alleviate some of the stress that follows a traumatic accident like this. One of the best ways to ensure you get the settlement you need is by working with experienced lawyers like Peterford Law.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident involving a truck, you know these situations can be truly catastrophic. Fatalities are tragically high in these accidents, and most of the time the most serious injuries are sustained by the person who was not driving the truck. Whether the accident was caused by distracted driving, fatigue, incorrect attachment of a trailer, or any number of other factors, insurance companies tend to use deceptive tactics in order to avoid having to pay a large sum of money to the victim.
Peterford Law is passionate about standing up for victims and getting them the largest possible settlement. Start your recovery by partnering with a caring and experienced lawyer.
