If You've Been Hurt In a Truck Rollover Accident, Call Jeff
An Athens, TX truck accident attorney who knows how to get results
When an 18-wheeler rolls over during a truck accident, it can leave people with serious injuries. But even though it seems clear what happened, recovering financial compensation can be complicated. Attorney Jeff Weinstein of Weinstein Law takes on the insurance companies to get injury victims the compensation they need and deserve.
In these types of accidents, the wheels of the semi-truck lift up off the road, and the entire rig rolls over. People can be hurt in different ways. The truck can roll over directly onto a car. Or it may slide and crash into cars before coming to a stop. Cargo from the truck can also spill out and into the path of oncoming vehicles.
Injuries can include broken bones, damage to internal organs, back injuries or head injuries. Victims may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication and multiple follow-up visits with a doctor. Medical expenses can become overwhelming in no time at all. And if people are left unable to work, it can become very difficult to make ends meet.
Focused on building strong cases
But recovering financial compensation is difficult. Trucking companies and insurance companies both know there is a lot of money at stake. Trucking companies don't want to end up paying higher premiums. Insurance companies want to protect their profits. They'll do anything they can to avoid paying you fair compensation.
There are different tactics they often use. Insurance companies may question the extent of your injuries, or the need for certain treatment. They may try to blame you for the accident. Or, they'll contact you soon after the accident and offer you a lowball settlement that doesn't come close to covering all the damages you've suffered.
Attorney Jeff Weinstein knows the way the game is played. And he knows how to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries. He focuses on building strong cases that the insurance companies have to take seriously. And he is dedicated to helping you get the best possible outcome in your case.
Holding negligent parties accountable
Negligence by the truck driver or the trucking company - or both - may be responsible for causing the rollover accident. The truck driver may have been distracted or speeding. The trucking company may have hired an unqualified driver, or neglected to make needed repairs on the truck. Jeff investigates to get the facts.
Our legal team gathers evidence such as the truck's "black box" data, hours of service logs, maintenance records and employment records. Jeff reviews accident reports and medical records. He identifies and interviews witnesses. And if needed, he consults accident reconstruction experts and other specialists who can help him understand what happened.
Jeff knows you can't wait for insurance companies to do the right thing. He builds a case that proves the rollover accident that left you injured was caused by negligence. Many times, Jeff is able to convince the insurance company to agree to a settlement that meets your needs. But if they won't negotiate, he is ready to fight for you in court.
