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.
