We are committed to helping you recover maximum compensation for your injuries. There are often multiple types of insurance that you are entitled to compensation from. Whether it’s the truck’s insurance, your insurance, or even a workers compensation insurance policy, we leave no stone unturned in making sure you are made whole.
More importantly, there are things we can do to give you less to worry about. When you’re in an accident with a truck, there are medical issues that need to be addressed. There are insurance questions that need answered. Unfortunately as this all happens, your life goes on. This means that life can get overwhelming for an injured person trying to just get through life on a day to day basis. We deal with the insurance company so you can focus on recovering both physically and emotionally.
If you lost a loved one to an accident with a tractor trailer, getting answers as to what happened can be the most difficult part. Being in the dark can be the worst part of trying to grieve. We know that, so we help the family members of wrongful death victims find answers to why the accident happened.Causes of Truck Accidents
Hundreds of truck accidents occur on Massachusetts highways every year, several of which are fatal. At Marcotte Law Firm, we have represented individuals and family members who have been involved in truck accidents caused by the following:
- Tire blowouts
- Truck driver fatigue
- Undertrained truck drivers
- Cellphone use and distracted driving
- Failure to do proper truck inspection (tires, brakes, etc.)
Accidents involving a car and a large truck often result in serious injuries to the car’s driver and passengers. Cars are not engineered to withstand a crash with a large truck. Consequently, a large number of these car-truck accidents are fatal.Insurance Matters
Following a truck accident, victims soon find themselves having to deal with the insurance company. This can be a particularly difficult matter to handle, and many choose to settle for whatever the insurance company offers them in the initial settlement.
