Truck and Tractor Trailer Accident Attorneys

Hampton Roads, Norfolk and the Virginia Beach area have some of the most crowded highways in the state of Virginia. Every year, hundreds of thousands of tourists make their way to our beaches, and as many trucks and tractor trailers deliver goods from our ports to destinations all over the United States. This combination of tourism and commerce has made our highways dangerous places to drive. The Norfolk/Virginia Beach area has been voted the 2nd most dangerous place for motorcyclists, and conditions for car drivers aren’t much better.

Tractor Trailers are enormous and hard to maneuver vehicles. Even with all the safety advances in automobiles, an accident with a truck can cause enormous damage to both cars and worse, to their drivers. A Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles report on motor vehicle accidents and fatalities contains statistics involving truck accidents in Virginia from 2012 that grimly illustrate the reality.

  • Number of Commercial Vehicle Crashes: 4,363
  • Number of Injuries: 3,008
  • Number of Fatalities: 90

The Law Firm of Breit Drescher Imprevento has a team of dedicated attorneys, paralegals and investigators that thoroughly understand personal injury law. We take pride in providing a complete investigation of truck accidents and their causes, and we have proudly secured multi-million dollar verdicts for our clients.

You might think that a truck accident in which the driver of the truck was at fault would be a cut and dried matter in terms of liability.

Unfortunately, insurance companies do their best to lower costs and offer low settlements in order to maximize their profits. One of the standard tactics of truck insurers is to offer injured parties a settlement quickly, before the victim has a full understanding of what the injury is going to cost.

It isn’t surprising that most Americans aren’t aware of their rights or what they are entitled to in compensation when they get injured. Getting into an accident is frightening and emotionally draining. The primary concerns of most accident victims are: Will I live? Will I be able to walk again? Am I going to be okay? Worrying about whether or not your injury will bankrupt you should be the least of your concerns.

The harm that can be delivered from a 90,000 pound vehicle can be considerable.

Truck injuries can result in permanent injuries to the spinal cord or the brain, and there is no real way to ever fully “recover” from those kinds of injuries. Often victims will require long term or life-long care, which can cost millions of dollars.

Having a lawyer that has a complete understanding of your rights as a truck accident victim is crucial in securing the compensation you deserve and need in order to pay for lost property, medical bills and loss of income. There is also the possibility of emotional distress, limitation of lifestyle as well as pain and suffering, each of which can not only affect the victim, but also the families and loved ones of the victim.

If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident with a truck or tractor trailer, or if you feel that the truck driver’s insurance company is offering you an inadequate settlement, contact Breit Drescher Imprevento for a free consultation. You can call us at 757-622-6000 or email ustoday and we’ll contact you within 24 hours to discuss your case.
