Truck accidents… They happen quickly, but the injuries caused by the accident are often severe and/or life-threatening because of the weight of the vehicles. Trucks are considerably heavier than cars, so the size of the trucks can indeed be a contributing factor to the accidents. Injuries from a truck accident can be extremely painful and prohibit you from doing daily activities. This can then lead to lost wages, financial stress, and a host of other problems.
However, there is hope: The Oxon Hill Truck Accident Lawyers at The Lapidus Law Firm are here to help.
Even if your injuries aren’t considered severe, don’t downplay them! Any injury can cause pain and suffering, which is why the person who caused your injuries should be held responsible. Luckily, the truck accident lawyers at The Lapidus Law Firm have one goal, which is to obtain a fair and reasonable settlement for any injury you may have suffered from a truck accident caused by someone else.
Why Do I Need A Lawyer?
With any personal injury case, you can allow the insurance company to choose your settlement amount (if they don’t deny your claim); however, it probably won’t be a favorable one if you don’t have a lawyer. By seeking legal representation, you are increasing your chances of getting a fair and reasonable settlement for your injuries.
Here at The Lapidus Law Firm, our goal is to go above and beyond in every case, including truck accident lawsuits if need be, to increase the chances of our clients obtaining a favorable settlement. We conduct in-depth investigations, intense research, and whatever hours of legal work it takes to obtain that goal. Some of the harms caused by a collision include:
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Income or Loss of the time value of work due to injuries
- Medical Bills/Expenses—even if covered in full or in part by health insurance
- Future Medical Bills/Expenses (when supported by medical opinions)
- Loss of Wage Earning Capacity
- Loss of Future Wages
- Loss of Marriage Intimacy due to accident-related injuries even if temporary
- Inconvenience & Associated Harms
- The Extent of Your Injuries
- How Long You Will Impacted By Your Injuries
- Property Damage
We go above and beyond in every case, including truck accident lawsuits, to increase the chances of our clients getting a favorable settlement. We conduct in-depth investigations, intense research, and hours of ligation to make sure every area of your injury is given compensation.
How Much Does A Lawyer Cost?
Most personal injury lawyers don’t charge a flat rate, nor do they charge hourly rates like divorce and business lawyers do. Payment is typically obtained from a settlement or judgment as a percentage of the settlement. This arrangement is a win-win for a client because the client is not paying cash up front or even as the case proceeds through the system. A personal injury lawyer is paid for results according to the pre-agreed percentage.
This is beneficial for a client because you, as the client, can focus on healing. You don’t have to worry about the payment because there is no financial risk for the legal services being rendered if the settlement or a favorable judgment does not materialize.
This arrangement is discussed BEFORE you hire The Lapidus Law Firm for representation, so there are no hidden fees or costs. We believe in trust and transparency and are proud of the reputation we’ve built over our four decades of service.
