We Will Fight For The Compensation You Deserve After A Truck Or Commercial Vehicle Accident
Delivery and commercial vehicle drivers, such as semi truck drivers, always seem to be in a hurry. Many of them are multitasking at the wheel; eating, texting or using other hand-held devices while they drive. Other times they are not fully trained, are sleep-deprived or using illegal drugs to stay awake. The result of any of these negligent actions can be a serious or fatal crash.
As an accident victim, you are entitled to claim compensation for your financial losses and pain and suffering. But as in any other type of motor vehicle accident, you are up against insurance companies that care more about their bottom line than your health and future. At T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law, we fight to ensure that you receive what you are truly due in these crashes. Call 502-677-1429 to speak with us about what happened and understand your right to pursue compensation.

What should the compensation cover?
In a personal injury claim, compensation should cover the entire cost of the financial consequences of the accident, such as current and future expenses of medical procedures, lost income, loss of earning potential, property damage and the cost of either renovating a home or relocating to accommodate the disabilities from an injury. Compensation should also pay for noneconomic costs, like pain and suffering, loss of life enjoyment, loss of consortium (loss of a deep relationship) and denied life opportunities.
What mistakes can jeopardize a claim?
When a victim pursues an injury claim, even saying the wrong thing can cost them in the long run. Talking to the liable party’s insurance company without a lawyer, posting online about the accident, and not seeing a doctor after an accident can all result in an accident victim missing out on the full value of their injury claim.
Why should a victim call a lawyer?
No one should have to manage their health and their personal injury claim on their own after an accident. A skilled lawyer can act on your behalf to help you maximize the compensation you receive by identifying the full value of your compensation, negotiating for that figure, collecting necessary evidence and minimizing the time it takes to earn your fair and full settlement.
