Auto & Trucking Accidents
Cash Krugler Fredericks has extensive experience representing clients injured in automobile and trucking accidents. Our philosophy in handling auto accidents is simple–immediately negotiate with the responsible party’s insurance company to determine whether your claim can be settled for a fair amount and, if not, move quickly toward trial.
As a victim of an auto or trucking accident, you are entitled to recover:
- All medical costs incurred, even those paid by an insurance company
- All future medical costs, surgical procedures or other medical care
- Past and future lost wages
- Damages for physical and mental pain and suffering
- Property damage to your vehicle
It is our experience that insurance companies often fail to negotiate in good faith with victims of accidents until an aggressive attorney becomes involved. Our goal is to quickly demonstrate the cause of any collision and the extent of the damages you have suffered. Often this requires hiring medical experts to establish the extent and cause of your injuries, your prognosis and future medical costs. In some cases, scientific experts may be necessary to reconstruct a collision, inspect vehicles or review records and logs.
Our firm also works extensively with economists, vocational experts and life care planners to assist in calculating future lost wages and treatments for those severely injured in automobile accidents. By prosecuting auto and trucking accident cases aggressively, we are able to obtain full compensation for our clients.
Collisions involving tractor-trailers or trucks are unique for a number of reasons. To start with, the damage and injuries inflicted upon motorists in trucking accidents are often severe, many times resulting in death. The size and weight of tractor-trailers are a significant contributing factor to the high-fatality rate, as well as large blind spots, driver fatigue and, in some cases, the use of alcohol or drugs. In fact, it is estimated that approximately one in every eight traffic deaths involves a tractor-trailer or truck.
Another reason trucking cases are unique is the need for immediate action. Insurance adjusters and others representing trucking companies are often on-call and available to inspect the truck or scene of the collision immediately. While you or your family member may be seeking medical help, the insurance adjuster will be busy searching for evidence and witnesses to protect the trucking company and hurt your case. Because of this risk, it is vitally important that you contact an attorney quickly so that steps can be taken to preserve all available evidence.
