Do I Need an Employer Negligence Lawyer?

Serious trucking accidents present accident victims with plenty of new challenges. Life-changing injuries, overwhelming hospital bills, physical rehabilitation, and financial losses are all common obstacles that people involved in 18-wheeler accidents face. If you are experiencing the stress and uncertainty of dealing with these challenges, the skilled guidance of a lawyer can help you through this difficult time.

In the event that a trucking company’s negligence is to blame for an accident, a lawyer will be able to determine in what ways and to what extent the company’s negligence has harmed you. Understanding if a company failed to maintain their fleet of vehicles, train employees properly, and uphold basic safety standards will all affect the amount of money you stand to win in court. Without a lawyer’s help, you may not realize that holding the employer liable is an option for you. If you only pursue a claim against a driver, your options for financial recovery will be diminished, because drivers’ individual insurance policies are likely to be vastly smaller than those of the company.

Finances are often a huge concern for accident victims. Accident survivors commonly grapple with growing hospital bills in addition to losing wages from time taken off of work. In the wake of these stressors, the prospect of hiring a lawyer can seem like yet another enormous financial undertaking. Most injury lawyers only receive payment if they win the case, so hiring a lawyer will not add to your list of bills.

Types of Employer Negligence Cases We Handle

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces regulations to ensure that companies are meeting standards to protect the safety of all drivers and passengers. When trucking companies fail to meet safety standards, they may be neglecting one or many responsibilities. Unfortunately, a trucking company’s neglect can easily cause the death and injury of innocent people. Some accidents caused by employer negligence include those caused by:

  • Poorly maintained vehicles
  • Failure to meet FMCSA standards
  • Inadequate hiring standards
  • Deficient employee training
  • Failure to provide drivers adequate work environment

When these companies don’t approach safety standards with rigor, it could cost someone their life. If you have been injured in a trucking accident, holding the responsible company legally accountable may save the lives of other drivers in the future. After a serious accident, it is normal to feel hesitant about pursuing the justice that you deserve, but don’t let this stop you from taking the first step in consulting with a lawyer about your case. Russo Law Firm may be able to help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Rehabilitative costs

If you tragically lost a loved one in a trucking accident caused by employer negligence, Russo Law Firm can help you pursue a wrongful death claim. Through this claim, certain family members can recover compensation for final expenses, loss of support, loss of income, and other damages.
