When you need a Forestville Truck Accident Attorney, we can help.
When you get into an accident that involves a truck, whether you are driving the truck, or hit by the truck, you need a lawyer who has ample experience in handling this type of accident. There are specific laws in place for trucks – especially if they are commercial trucks, like a semi, a delivery truck, utility truck or work vehicle of any sort.
Here at The Lapidus Law Firm, we have the experience and skill to help you with your claim. You may think you have everything under control, but please don’t assume the insurance company has your best interest in mind. At the very least, let us look at your claim during a free, no-obligation consultation, and we’ll tell you if you’re being offered a fair and reasonable settlement.
What is a Fair and Reasonable Settlement?
A fair and reasonable settlement should address every aspect of how you have been affected by your injuries. Your Forestville Truck Accident Lawyer will look at:
- Your vehicle’s insurance coverage (or that of the person who was driving the vehicle you were in),
- The at-fault driver’s insurance coverage
- Lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- And much more
Truck Accident Statistics
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, statistics show an alarming rise in truck accidents for the state of Maryland in 2017. During that year, there were 51 utility truck fatalities. Compare that to 2016 when there were 47 fatalities of this type. The increase in pickup truck fatalities is even more significant: in 2017, there were 42 pick-up truck fatalities, and in 2016, there were 33. For large trucks, however, the numbers showed an opposite trend, decreasing from 63 fatalities in 2016 to 48 in 2017.
In looking at all the counties in Maryland, there is a saddening trend in Prince Georges County in particular. PG County alone ranks highest for a 5-year trend in crash-related fatalities, topping out 2017 with a five year high of 99 fatalities. The county coming in second is Baltimore county with a far distant fatality toll of 72.
