Our personal injury trial attorneys work quickly and effectively to preserve evidence and prepare the strongest case possible to show how the truck driver or the truck owner was negligent and responsible for your injuries and financial damages.
Why Trucking Accident Cases Are Different
Do not talk to a representative of the truck company or its insurance adjuster until you have talked to us. In many cases, truck companies carry an additional amount of coverage to cover their drivers and corporate entity for financial damages. We know the full extent of damages that trucking accident injury cases often bring. Truck companies know they carry a significant risk of liability. They often retain accident investigators to arrive on the scene of a truck wreck within minutes after the accident. Our attorneys know the trucking regulations and work aggressively to seal or protect evidence from the truck companies that often use delay tactics to entice the injured parties to accept a low, fast settlement. We have the financial resources to stay in the case and fight until you receive a full and fair settlement, or take your case to court.
We Represent You on a Contingency Fee Basis. No Lawyers’ Fees if You Don’t Win
Truck accident cases can take more than a year to settle or come to trial. That is a long time for a typical family to deal with the financial damages that result from the injuries or death. At Hobbie, Corrigan & DeCarlo, P.C., we will not ask you to pay attorneys’ fees until you have settled your claim or won a jury verdict in court. We cover the cost of investigating, preparing and bringing your truck crash injury or wrongful death claim to trial. Our attorneys’ fees and other associated expenses are recovered as a percentage of your final personal injury compensation. It will cost you nothing to talk to us about your case.
