If a Virginia Eastern Shore truck accident has completely interrupted your normal life, you are like many clients who stay awake at night wondering:

  • Who will pay my medical bills?
  • How can I recover my lost wages from work?
  • Who must pay for the repairs to my car?
  • Can I receive fair a settlement for my injuries?

Our Virginia personal injury lawyers are committed to helping truck accident victims recover the best possible settlement and to help bring their life, as close as possible, to normal.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents and Collisions

Tractor-trailer and other trucks present special circumstances which many victims (and sometimes investigating police officers) lack the expertise to understand. For example, the following potential causes must be carefully considered as part of our investigations for our truck accident victims:

  • Truck drivers who have been on the road for too long with inadequate sleep
  • Truck drivers who have become impaired from alcohol and drugs, especially stimulants taken to overcome excessive time on the roads
  • Excessive loads; causing the overloaded truck to become dangerously uncontrollable over-sized trucks which exceed established rules and regulations for the safe length, width, and height for operation
  • Missing safety equipment; including the absence of reflectors, lights, and other warning devices
  • Poorly maintained brakes and tires
  • Excessive speed

Trucking Laws and Regulations are Complex

Our attorneys understand there are extensive rules and regulations unique to truck drivers and trucking companies which operate in our state. There are numerous complicated factors that need to be looked into when it comes to commercial vehicle accidents.

It is critical to hire a lawyer who understands these complex rules and regulations.

The heavy volume of trucking in our area coupled with the huge weight of a tractor-trailer, resulting in a significant number of truck accident victims who often suffer from severe injuries including brain damage, spinal cord injuries, major damage to the vertebrae and discs of their neck and back, and even death.

Statute of Limitations (Claim Deadlines)

Many accident victims that have taken a “wait and see” approach to find out the hard way that there are STRICT time limitations for bringing a Virginia car accident injury claim. As time goes by and their injuries have not gotten any better, victims then seek help for chronic pain or mounting hospital or medical bills. If you wait too long, the door to justice is closed forever. In Virginia, You typically must file a lawsuit with the court within two years of the date of the accident.  If the injured person is a child or a person with a mental disability, this period can often be extended beyond two years.
