Two weeks ago on the blog we discussed semi-truck maintenance and how important it is to ensure the safety of other motorists on the road. The responsibility for properly caring for a truck falls on the shoulders of the trucker and the company he or she works for. A trucker or company’s neglect to adequately repair and maintain a big rig could cause a catastrophic tractor trailer crash, which might leave innocent individuals seriously injured or dead.

If you have been victimized by one of these crashes, then you know the effect it can have on your life. You may never be the same again physically, emotionally, or financially. Your hardship might disallow you from obtaining needed medical care, paying rent or mortgage, keeping the lights on, and even feeding your family. When this happens, you might feel outraged, cheated, depressed, and/or fearful, and it is completely understandable. But you don’ have to face such difficulties alone. A qualified Massachusetts attorney may be able to help alleviate some of your burden.

If your injurious collision was caused by an improperly repaired or maintained truck, then you might have a valid legal claim. However, these cases are not always easy to prove. You might have to dig through mountains of paperwork, apply legal standards, and persuasively argue why you are entitled to damages. This is where a compassionate, diligent, and aggressive legal team, like the one at Colonna & Doyle Law Offices, may be able to help.

With a competent attorney by your side, you can walk confidently into the negotiating room or the courtroom, knowing that your interests are represented to the fullest extent possible under the circumstances. If your case reaches a settlement or is adjudicated in your favor, then you may receive the compensation you need to get back on your feet. Though it may not allow you to fully regain your health, a successful case may allow you to find peace and comfort.
