Maximizing The Financial Recovery For Coal Mine Trucking Accident Victims
You may feel like you are facing an endless amount of medical bills as part of your recovery. The insurance adjuster’s settlement offer may be tempting to help you gain control of your financial situation. Unfortunately, initial insurance offers rarely cover the full extent of damages accident victims have incurred.
At Greene Ketchum, we are committed to being a strong voice to help you secure the compensation you are entitled. Our legal team has extensive experience negotiating with large insurance companies. We know how to overcome any hurdles in pursuit of a fair settlement. To help you obtain a fair financial recovery, we will conduct a thorough investigation to identify all potential sources of recovery.
Our legal team can consult an accident scene reconstructionist and other industry-leading experts to evaluate evidence from the accident scene. We also seek to determine liability through reviewing maintenance records, fuel tickets and logbook records. Our accident lawyers conduct thorough investigation to understand what caused the trucking accident, such as:
- Overloaded coal truck
- Improperly loaded coal truck
- Truck company negligence
- Driver error
If more than one party caused the coal truck accident, we will aggressively pursue maximum compensation against all at-fault parties. We are committed to helping you obtain the compensation you need for any lost wages, current and future medical expenses and lost wages.
Advocating For Workers Injured In Coal Trucking Accidents
If you sustained injuries in a coal trucking accident while working, obtain experienced legal counsel. The right lawyer will have the skills and legal resources to help you secure compensation beyond workers’ compensation benefits, if a third party’s negligent actions caused the coal trucking accident.
When you select our law firm, we will conduct a thorough investigation to uncover all potential sources of liability. If a maintenance error or another third-party’s negligent actions caused the accident, we can help you pursue a civil lawsuit against the at-fault third party. This would help you recover benefits beyond workers’ compensation for any medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
