Financial Relief for Virginians Hit by Delivery Trucks
If you were struck by a delivery truck in Virginia, a trucking company could be liable for your financial damages. You may be able to collect compensation to cover:
- Medical costs, debts, and copays
- Ongoing therapy, prescriptions, and expected health recovery costs
- Lost wages or bonuses
- Diminished income potential
- “Pain and suffering” and inconvenience
At Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, we hold corporate entities responsible for the conditions they require drivers to work under. If a driver was drowsy from working overtime and hit you, the driver’s employer may be negligently responsible for your injury. The driver in your case may have also been intoxicated at the time of your accident. If this was the case, then the trucking company may also still be liable for your accident. The company may have failed to perform a background check on the driver (who may have had previous DUI charges). A lawyer from our office may be able to take on your case at no upfront monetary cost to you.
Call our office today for your free case evaluation, where we listen to your story and explain what rights you have available. A member of our team is waiting for your call at (571) 229-1800.
How a Manassas Delivery Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help You
If aggressive insurance or trucking company agents have tried to bully you into sharing information or taking responsibility for the accident, we can help. Our team of professionals can help you prove that the delivery truck driver was responsible for your accident.
In fact, there are a number of different entities that a person may be able to sue after a delivery truck accident, such as:
- Owner of a delivery truck
- Employer of a delivery truck driver
- Relevant equipment manufacturer or parts designer
- A third-party driver who may have forced the truck to take evasive action
We can help you take on the legal tasks after a truck accident (such as determining negligence). The aftermath can be confusing. Let us handle it all.
You Should Always Get Medical Attention After an Accident
You may have suffered injuries you may not even be aware of if you got into a truck accident. If you were lucky enough to walk away from a crash, you should head to a doctor or emergency room. You may have suffered broken bones, lacerations, fractures, sprains, strains, whiplash, or a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a TBI may exhibit such early warning symptoms as:
- New patterns of mood or personality
- Difficulty holding attention or memory
- Moodiness or irritability
- Pain that does not go away or gets worse
- Migraines that did not happen before
- Slurred speech
- Nausea or vomiting
- Asymmetrical pupil dilation
- Fatigue or lethargy
If you or a loved one are experiencing some of these symptoms after a crash with a delivery truck, it could be your body’s cry for help and medical attention. Our team can discuss this with you further if you are concerned about TBIs after a roadway collision.
Evidence in Your Case May Become Harder to Find if You Wait to Call
There is no more pressing reason to act today than the need to collect as much evidence for your case as possible. There may be tire skid marks or glass shatter patterns on the pavement that are available for photographing. If a police officer responded to your collision, then a report should exist—we will want to confirm its accuracy. Police are only required to check the vicinity and publish an opinion of who is at fault, along with citing any offending drivers.
However, this leaves much evidence out in the field to be discovered. Parrish Law Firm, PLLC conducts urgent evidence collection beyond what the police or other drivers may have seen. For example, we look at nearby security camera footage to see if an establishment may have caught a glimpse of the crash.
We are also ready to help you avoid the tricks and tactics of insurance agents. They may want you to bait you into making a statement that may spoil your chances at recovery. We want to help you avoid doing so.
The Virginia Statute of Limitations May Be Relevant in Your Case
The statute of limitations in Virginia is typically two years for personal injuries. However, evidentiary discovery is a much more urgent process that should begin as soon as possible. In this way and more, we help our clients focus on recovering from their injuries while we fight for their rights at Parrish Law Firm, PLLC.
If our firm takes on your case, a Manassas delivery truck accident lawyer will be prepared to take your lawsuit to court, if necessary. Call Parrish Law Firm, PLLC today at (571) 229-1800.
