Have You Been Involved In a Truck Accident That Resulted In An Amputation?
Commercial trucks are some of the most dangerous vehicles on the road. They’re many times larger and heavier than any kind of personal automobile, and during a collision they do much greater damage to the other vehicle and driver than to themselves. For this reason, the law regulates their use to ensure the safety of other drivers. If an accident with a commercial truck – where the driver was negligent – leads to an amputation, you are entitled to damages.
Trucking companies often have a great deal of knowledge about accident law, because they — and their insurance company — understand how expensive it can be for them. They will, unfortunately, be actively working to reduce their driver’s fault in your accident, and to minimize the extent of your injuries.
Our team at the law firm of Doyle Law will prevent this from happening. And, we can assist you in getting the compensation you deserve for your amputation.
Doyle Law: Staunchly Defending Trucking Accident and Amputee Victims
There are many things a trucking company can do to create unsafe conditions. At Doyle Law, we have experience with all of them:
- Improper or inefficient training of drivers, and lack of oversight in maintaining their qualifications
- Allowing their operators to drive aggressively, such as ignoring the reduced speed limits for commercial trucks, tailgating, forcibly changing lanes, etc.
- Creating illegal shift lengths and travel schedules that don’t allow for the legal minimum of rest for drivers
- Negligence from the drivers themselves, such as driving while intoxicated, using cell phones and other distractions, etc.
- And more
The truth is, we understand trucking accidents, and we understand what amputees go through. One of our founding attorneys, Conal Doyle, has been a right-leg amputee for over 30 years. We understand the difficulty in adjusting to life with a prosthesis, and can make sure you get the necessary compensation to protect yourself for the rest of your life.
