How Common Are Truck Crashes?
Securing Compensation for Your Truck Accident
Due to the size and weight of commercial trucks, truck accidents can cause life-changing injuries. More complicated and devastating than your typical car accident, truck accident cases often result in:
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- High medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Rehabilitation and therapy
You shouldn't be responsible for these expenses. Entities that can be held liable in the event of a truck accident include negligent truck drivers, trucking companies, the manufacturer of the commercial vehicle, and the loader of the truck's cargo. To determine if you have the grounds to make a solid truck accident claim and secure compensation, Mr. Fisher can meet with you personally in his Fresno law office.
You May Be Eligible for Workers' Comp How Our Fresno Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards require employers to provide a safe work environment for their employees. This includes providing necessary safety gear, equipment, and training. However, even with OSHA standards and safety measures in place, accidents happen. If you suffer a personal injury on the job, your employer is automatically responsible.
Workers’ compensation insurance covers medical expenses, lost wages, permanent disability, pain and suffering, and wrongful death. However, there is no guarantee that you will be awarded the amount of compensation you truly need and deserve. With the help of a truck accident attorney who can file your claim and illustrate the true extent of your losses, you are far more likely to collect the compensation necessary to rebuild your life.
Mr. Fisher is an honest worker's comp attorney who treats his clients with empathy and compassion. Having dealt personally with the devastating effects of a workplace injury within his family, you can trust Mr. Fisher will be a strong advocate for you in your time of need.
