Memphis Truck Accident Attorney
Truck Accident Lawyer
Companies that operate delivery trucks, 18-wheelers and other large commercial vehicles act quickly to protect their own interests after an accident. Their insurance companies do too.
Most victims, on the other hand, have to play catch-up from the word “Go.” Those who don’t are the ones who took immediate action to protect their own rights by contacting an experienced law firm.
We Help You Determine Who the Responsible Parties Are
One of the biggest challenges in handling a truck accident case is that you as a victim may not know who all of the responsible parties or defendants are. However, discovering every single person responsible for your injuries is a key part of getting you the compensation you deserve. At GKBM we have spent years learning the investigative tricks necessary to identify all of the responsible parties and make sure that they pay for their negligence. The responsible parties could include:
- Insurance Companies
- Trucking Companies
- Vehicle Manufacturers
- And Many Others
Our goal is to locate potentially liable defendants and help you recover the most amount of damages you can for your injury. We also realize that statutes of limitations limit the amount of time that we have for doing this.
We Do What It Takes to Protect You
At Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, we act quickly to protect the rights of truck accident victims in western Tennessee, eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi. We will readily go to the accident scene in the middle of the night to preserve evidence or identify potential witnesses — our clients come first and we will do whatever it takes to help them get fair compensation in these cases.
Why Truck Accident Victims Need a Truck Attorney
Victims of truck accidents, whether they are automobile drivers, pedestrians, or on a bicycle, might be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries. What many do not realize is that in some instances they can bring a legal claim against the truck driver, even if they as the driver were partially at fault. Accident liability is a very complicated and nuanced part of the legal code.At GKBM, we know that no two cases were exactly alike. For this reason, it is ill advised for accident victims to try to seek compensation from a trucking accident on their own. Their best chance for success stems from having a truck accident attorney on their side.
The Experience and Resources Needed to Prove Your Case
Truck accidents can be caused by any number of things: recklessness, drunk driving, driver fatigue, poor truck maintenance, a defective truck part or even a simple safety violation. Because evidence of fault might exist anywhere — at the scene, in the driver’s log book, in the company’s maintenance records, or in electronic form on a truck’s black box — proving what happened and why isn’t something you should leave to chance.
When you call Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC for help, you’ll be putting investigators, accident reconstruction specialists and attorneys with decades of truck accident litigation experience to work for you.
The Compensation You Deserve
The sheer size and weight difference between the vehicles means that many truck accident victims do not survive their injuries. Of those who do survive, many are left disabled and unable to care for themselves because of brain damage, paralysis or burns.
Our lawyers understand that catastrophic injury cases are different and work closely with medical specialists, accountants, life care planners and other experts to make sure that we seek appropriate compensation for our clients.
