Callahan & Blaine’s experience with truck accidents includes recovering a $28 million settlement against a trucking company and truck maintenance company. Our lawyers have the skill to fight trucking companies and their insurance carriers – and their teams of attorneys and insurance adjusters. As an individual, you simply cannot fight a commercial insurance company and win.
We know how to counteract the defense tactics of the trucking company and insurance company. As part of our investigation, the firm often works with accident reconstruction experts to establish the facts of the accident. Our attorneys understand the importance of immediately taking action, visiting the accident scene and securing the truck so evidence can be preserved.
Additionally, we utilize medical experts and economists to provide specific information about the extent of your injuries and your financial losses. In most cases, insurance companies severely undervalue injury and wrongful death claims, but at Callahan & Blaine, we prepare cases to obtain full and fair compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and additional related losses.
Trucking accident claims often have more than one liable party. Our law firm is very successful at finding all liable parties and holding them accountable for their negligence. When we obtained a record-setting settlement of $50 million for two pedestrians struck by a vehicle while jogging, we held the city liable for failing to properly mark the road’s bike lane.
We use this same skill and diligence to ensure that all negligent parties in truck accident cases are held responsible for their actions. This may include the driver, the trucking company, the truck maintenance company, the manufacturer of defective truck equipment or a municipality that failed to maintain safe roadways.
