Get Justice with a Fighter: Retain a Doan Law Firm Truck Accident Injury Lawyer
Approximately 30 percent of all semi-truck accidents in the United States
are caused by fatigued big rig operators, according to the U.S. Department
of Transportation. Despite very specific, hard and fast regulations, time
and again commercial truck drivers operate semis well beyond the time
period allowed. In other word, odds are high that whenever a motorist
gets on the road, he or she is likely to face a big rig operator who is
exhausted -- and dangerous.
Even though semi-truck driver regulations permits them to be on the road
to 70 hours each week, many drivers routinely ignore this threshold. According
to the National Transportation Safety Board, over two-thirds of semi drivers
report being fatigued on half their trips. 13 percent of big rig operators
reported that they had fallen asleep at the wheel.
If you have been injured in a fatigued driver truck accident, you must
understand your rights and interests. You need to begin that process in
a proactive manner by retaining the services of a fatigued driver truck
accident injury lawyer from The Doan Law Firm at (800) 349-0000.
Justice and Compensation in a Driver Fatigue Truck Accident Injury Case
The compensation you receive in your case depends on the facts and circumstances
of the accident, and the nature of the injuries, damages, and losses you
sustained. With that noted, a tenacious truck accident injury lawyer from
our firm, at (800) 349-000, will fight to obtain financial recovery for
losses that include:
- pain and suffering
- medical bills and expenses
- permanent disability and disfigurement
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- property loss
- income loss
Our legal team will also fight to ensure that you obtain compensation for
future losses you reasonably can be expected to face. For example, you
will likely require medical care and treatment into the future because
of the serious nature of truck accident injuries. You may not be able
to return to work for an extended period of time. You may endure pain
well into the future, if not forever. These are all examples of losses
for which you deserve full compensation.
A truck accident injury lawyer from our firm understands the need to diligently
press on with your claim or lawsuit until full compensation is won for
you. In your case, you may be entitled to punitive damages as well.
Punitive damages represent additional money awarded to you in a lawsuit
in certain situations. Punitive damages are also designed to punish the
party that caused the accident for particularly reckless conduct. For
example, if the big rig operator that caused the accident had been at
the wheel for over 14 consecutive hours, that conduct very well may be
deemed reckless by a jury in a lawsuit.
