How Irresponsible Trucking Companies Cause Highway Accidents
Many times, the responsibility for a truck accident falls on the trucker’s employer. Irresponsible trucking companies put drivers on the road with improper training or questionable driving records. They then pressure their drivers into prioritizing fast delivery times above highway safety.
When handling your case, attorney Whitlock will take a close look at the trucking company to uncover any evidence of wrongdoing that may have contributed to your accident. She will undertake a thorough investigation to find out who is liable for your injuries. She will then take decisive legal action against the responsible parties and use her extensive knowledge of personal injury law to pursue the full compensation you deserve.
Possible Compensation Available For Your Truck Accident Case
Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be entitled to full compensation for damages such as hospital and rehabilitation bills, lost past and future wages, and pain and suffering. You could even be entitled to additional damages — called punitive damages — if malicious misconduct contributed to the truck accident.
How Much Does A Truck Accident Lawyer Cost?
Attorney Morgan Whitlock handles truck accident cases on a contingency fee basis. That means you won’t have to pay legal fees unless — and until — she obtains a favorable outcome in your case.
