18-Wheeler Accidents

18-wheeler wrecks often result in catastrophic injuries that permanently affect the lives of the injured persons and their families. We have handled many cases involving the collision of big rigs or tractor-trailers with small or mid-sized vehicles, which resulted in the death or significant injury of one or more occupants of the smaller vehicle. Often truckers are under the pressure of deadlines to make deliveries on time. Many times truckers are fatigued from running late with inadequate sleep. Some of the symptoms of fatigue are loss of attention, slower reactions, poor judgment and slow response time. Tired truck drivers cause wrecks. When someone is killed as the result of a senseless incident, often times the emotional toll makes it difficult to think about pursuing a claim for wrongful death. The surviving spouse or parent is naturally overcome with grief, making the process of dealing with the insurance adjuster even more stressful. Initially, insurance adjusters will act like they care. They will tell you that they are trying to help you with medical expenses and losses caused by their insured. What they are really doing is seeking information about you and your loved one in hopes of minimizing the amount they pay for your losses. They are trained to reduce the amount the company has to pay, and they do it everyday, which places you at a disadvantage.

It is important to call an experienced attorney before giving the insurance company any information. The lawyers at Rice & Kendig will lead you though the process so you can focus on medical treatment and recovery from your injuries, or putting your life back together after the loss of a loved one. Our firm in most cases will advance the medical cost of your treatment such as, doctor visits, prescription medication, physical therapy, medical procedures, and surgeries. This will give you the peace of mind and assurance that no matter what injury is discovered you will have the resources to make a full recovery.

In a wrongful death case, we are here to guide you through the process and help you pick up the pieces. We have successfully handled many wrongful death cases resulting in significant recoveries that helped families get back on their feet. Although we know the money can never replace the loss of a loved one, a successful claim often times provides resources to replace the financial loss for loved ones left behind. Call us today.
