Were you hurt in a collision with a commercial vehicle in Memphis? The injury attorneys of Gold Law Firm can help you recover compensation for the harm you’ve suffered and any property damage you’ve incurred through no fault of your own. With the right attorney on your side, you could recover significant compensation, so call us at (901) 244-5003 for a free consultation today.

The most recent Federal Motor Carrier Safety Progress Report shows that there were more than 350,000 crashes involving commercial trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicles in 2018. These crashes can be devastating to both the accident victims and their families, causing severe injuries, wrongful death, and the pain and suffering that accompany both. Due to the size and weight of many commercial vehicles, the injuries suffered during these accidents often require long and painful recovery periods. Victims often need to take extensive time off work, and these injuries can also leave them incapable of taking care of their daily activities. If the victim has to rely on care from another family member, their earnings potential can be negatively affected as well. Bills pile up quickly in these situations, and life can quickly become overwhelming.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a commercial vehicle accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries and other damages. This compensation can include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and more. The helpful attorneys at Gold Law Firm can assist you with all aspects of your claim so that you can get beyond the financial, physical, and emotional strain you’re experiencing. Call us today at (901) 244-5003 for a free consultation about your case and we will give you the professional legal insight you need to move forward.

Why You Need A Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer

Commercial vehicle crashes can be extremely complicated. But, at the end of the day, the only thing you should be concerned about as an injured victim is receiving the amount of compensation that will cover your expenses and other damages. Take the responsibility of learning the law off your plate, and let the knowledgeable attorneys at Gold Law Firm ensure that the commercial vehicle owners responsible for your accident are held accountable. We put all of our resources to work for you so that you can get the justice you deserve for your injuries.

An encounter with a commercial vehicle can leave a victim severely injured. When the accident investigation process begins, you may learn that the driver was uninsured, that company is being uncooperative, or many other facts that can be crucial to your claim. The way to avoid all of this headache is to have a skillful, dedicated attorney on your side to advocate for your best interests. You deserve the personal attention it takes to have a successful result in a commercial vehicle accident claim. This is the level of service that you will receive at Gold Law Firm, and we are standing by for your call.

Tennessee is a fault-based accident state that abides by the modified comparative negligence rule. This means that you are only eligible to recover damages in a commercial vehicle accident case if you are less than 50% liable for the accident. The amount of your recovery can be limited as well. Because of this rule, it is of utmost importance that you have an experienced commercial vehicle accident lawyer by your side. It can make a critical difference in your ability to recover what your claim is worth and ensure that you have more than enough money to pay your medical expenses and other damages. At Gold Law Firm, we have fought and won hundreds of commercial vehicle cases for our clients, and we will advocate aggressively on your behalf so that we can do the same for you.

What should I do if I am involved in a commercial vehicle accident?

If you have been involved in a commercial vehicle accident, first make sure that you are in a safe location. Seek medical attention, even if you feel OK. An accident with a large vehicle can leave your adrenaline pumping, which can make injuries unnoticeable right away, only to leave you in a dangerous position if you go home without being treated. Call law enforcement and make sure a police report is filed. Take photos of the accident scene if you are able, and get witness contact information if available. Next, call an experienced commercial truck accident attorney to get started with your case. The sooner you call, the better. Evidence, especially in commercial vehicle accidents, has a tendency to disappear quickly if companies are trying to cover their tracks.

What makes commercial vehicles more dangerous than other vehicles?

Commercial vehicles are often much heavier than a regular passenger vehicle. This weight can cause devastating effects to both your body and your personal property. Commercial vehicles may also be carrying hazardous materials that could cause fires, spills, and other dangerous scenarios not normally experienced in traditional auto accidents. All of these factors enhance the level of risks to you as an accident victim.

How long do I have to file a claim for my accident?

The statute of limitations for personal injuries, including motor vehicle injuries, in the state of Tennessee, is two years. This means you have up to two years from the date of your accident to initiate a legal action for a commercial vehicle accident. However, some insurance companies may have stricter timing limitations. It is always best to take legal action quickly when you are in a commercial vehicle accident so that you can retain the best possible evidence for your case, and so that you do not miss out on any possible recovery from the insurance company or other responsible parties.

What if I can’t afford a lawyer?

At Gold Law Firm, we believe that everyone should be entitled to quality legal care, so we operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay anything for your legal representation unless you receive a satisfactory judgment for your claim. Your initial consultation is totally free, and we will review your claim and legal options at that time. Then, if we mutually decide to proceed with your case, we will sign a representation agreement that will provide all of the information you need to know about the legal services you will receive.

What kind of damages can I recover from my commercial vehicle accident?

Damages for any type of personal injury include economic and noneconomic damages. Your recovery can cover medical expenses, lost wages from work, rehabilitation expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages. Every case is unique, and at Gold Law Firm, we can review the damages that are potentially available to you in your case at your initial consultation and provide you the advice you need to begin a legal action so you can get what is rightfully yours.
