SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH TRUCK & 18-WHEELER ACCIDENT LAWYERS
FREE CASE REVIEW
Attorney Ron Kramer understands the many ways that a truck crash can occur. He uses his knowledge as a licensed commercial driver and his legal skill to help clients who have been harmed by tractor trailers.
We begin by listening carefully to the facts of your case and the ways that your life has changed as a result of your injuries. Insurance companies often try to take advantage of injured people after truck wrecks and push lowball settlements that do not reflect the full extent of your losses. An initial offer may be only a fraction of the amount that you should receive based on the severity of your injuries.
We can help you evaluate your options for seeking just compensation. We often give advice about the next steps you should take: how to talk to the insurance company, what to do next, and how to protect your legal rights.
We will review the facts of the collision and identify the potentially at-fault parties. Car crashes involving semi-trucks may have multiple potentially liable parties including the truck driver, the trucking company, a cargo shipper, a trailer owner, or a manufacturer of truck components such as defective tires or faulty brakes.
We will conduct a detailed investigation of the wreck and determine all the potentially responsible parties and their insurance companies. We will gather police reports, driver’s logs, truck maintenance records and other evidence to show that negligence on the part of the truck driver, trucking company or another party caused your injuries.
We will develop an estimate of your losses including your medical expenses, lost income from missed work, and future lost income if your injuries prevent you from returning to work.
We will prepare a claim and submit it to the insurance companies representing the at-fault parties. We will negotiate vigorously for a just settlement that reflects the extent of your losses.
If the insurance companies refuse to make a fair settlement, we will be prepared to file a lawsuit after consulting with you and seek justice for you in court.
Throughout the process, we will stand beside you —and stand up for you—in settlement negotiations, in mediation and, if necessary, in court.
It isn’t always easy to determine who should be liable in a Utah car accident case and why. Working with an experienced attorney like those at the Kramer Law Group can help you build a strong case.
When we work with a client, we begin by listening carefully to your memories of the accident and the events that led up to and followed the crash. We gather police reports and other documentation that can shed light on the events of your case. We also look at your insurance coverage and the insurance available from any other involved parties. We look into whether an employer, vehicle manufacturer, alcohol vendor, or other responsible party might also be involved in the case. We talk to witnesses and gather their testimony for use in negotiations or in court. If needed, we consult with experts in fields like accident reconstruction and medical care to determine both what happened and how the resulting injuries will affect the course of your life, work, and hobbies. Then, we use the evidence to establish the precise extent of the harm caused and your right to full compensation for that harm.
With the evidence in hand, we represent your interests in every setting: at mediation, at trial, or on appeal if needed. We’ve won substantial settlements for clients in negotiation and landed significant verdicts for the injured at trial, and we strive to represent each client with the same dedication and rigor.
