You decide your child needs a little bit of an education on how life was before all of the modern technological advances we have available today. So you take him on a trip to Boonesborough State Park. He spends the entire day with artisans and actors showing the trials and tribulations that were just a part of common life way back then. At the end of the day, you and your family are exhausted and ready to go home. You drive down 627 heading home. A semi driver, who was falling asleep at the wheel, crosses into your lane of traffic and is heading straight toward you. You try to swerve out of the truck’s way, but you know there is nothing you can do to avoid the collision.
Truck Accidents Are More Frequent Than You May Think
Most over the road truckers are hard-working individuals who are conscientious about their responsibility to drive their large truck in a safe way. Unfortunately, some truck drivers and some trucking companies allow the stress of the job or the opportunity to make more money to cause them to overlook the driving safety standards that have been laid out by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. These regulations stipulate how long a truck driver can be behind the wheel as well as other safety procedures. When these are overlooked, serious accidents happen.
Unfortunately, as the statistics hold out, when there is an accident involving a passenger vehicle and a semi truck, three out of four times it will be the passenger vehicle that is damaged and its occupants injured. Because of the size disparity between the two vehicles, the injuries to the occupants of the passenger vehicle are usually severe and life altering.
At Isaacs & Isaacs, we have provided legal support and assistance to thousands of Richmond truck accident victims. We have been doing this work for more than two decades, and we understand how important it is for Kentucky truck accident victims to get the financial compensation they deserve.
Never Go at It Alone
When you are the victim of a truck accident, it is likely that you have some very expensive medical bills. It is also likely that you are not able to work, and so you do not have any income. Because of these factors, you may be tempted to want to “save money” by not hiring a Kentucky truck accident attorney. This is a serious mistake.
What you can never forget is that from the moment the accident happens, the truck company has their team of lawyers, insurance agents, and investors all working together to minimize their liability. Their goal is to find a way to blame the accident on you, or if they are shown to be responsible, provide you with the least amount of compensation possible. At Isaacs & Isaacs we refuse to allow this to happen to our clients.
Our current success is built on our fighting more than 50,000 cases in the area courts. We have helped our clients recoup more than $700 million in judgments. We do this because we understand how complicated litigating trucking accidents can be, and we have the skills and the resources to get the job done right.
We Are Not Intimidated
Trucking companies and insurance companies try to intimidate accident victims. They understand that accident victims are emotionally, physically, and financially traumatized after the collision. They know that Richmond accident victims are worried about how they are going to cover their expenses. And so they use these fears to try to force a quick settlement, or to trick victims into taking a lowball settlement that they will later regret. There will never be a time when a truck company, their insurance agent, or their lawyers will be looking out for your best interest. That is what we at Isaacs & Isaacs are here for.
We will fight with everything we have to help you get the settlement you deserve. During our free consultation, we will listen to your case and tell you in an honest and open manner if we feel that your case is one that we think we can win. Our goal is always to look out for your best interest.
