Car Crashes Can Cause Catastrophe

West Virginia law limits the amount of time you have to file a claim. Your quality of life can be impacted medically and repairs to your vehicle may be expensive, necessary, and definitely unexpected. We will handle the expenses necessary to process your case, such as obtaining expert witnesses. We do not get paid until we are successful in getting money for you.

The kind of compensation you may receive from a settlement or jury verdict may include money to cover (1) the property loss involving your car and other items; (2) medical costs to cover your present and future care; (3) pain and suffering caused by the car accident; (4) loss of consortium, if your injuries interfere with your relationship; (5) lost wages, including lost benefits such as sick, vacation, and personal days off; and (6) any additional harms or losses caused by the accident.

Using the legal services of Stroebel & Johnson, PLLC can give you the personal attention you need to help with (1) concentrating on healing and recovery; (2) medical care, especially if you do not have health insurance; (3) stopping harassing bill collectors; (4) recovering money for your losses; (5) keeping you informed about your case and resolving it as quickly as possible, so you can get back on your feet.

Stroebel & Johnson feels it is important for you to know what to do in the event of an auto accident, and why it is important to have legal representation: (1) Be sure to seek medical attention immediately; (2) Involve the police immediately and file a report of the accident; (3) Get witness information and any other evidence you can, such as photos; (4) Do not speak with the other driver’s car insurance company or adjusters.

You are not obliged to give the other insurance representative any sort of recorded statement, as it may affect your own accident claims for damages. Even if you do not feel any injury from the accident right away and may not want to be seen by a doctor, there may be physical damage that can affect you in the coming days, weeks, or months after the accident. Having everything documented properly can help when you need to file a personal injury claim from an auto accident.

Truck Accidents of All Types Cause Thousands of Injuries in WV

If you were injured in a truck crash involving a commercial truck or light truck, due to that operator’s negligence or another party, give the accident attorneys of  Stroebel and Johnson a call. We can work for you to recover compensation to pay for your medical bills, work losses, property damage, and help restore your quality of life.

There are federal and state regulations and guidelines under which commercial truck drivers must operate. This includes truck management companies, vehicle maintenance fleets, cargo loading companies, and others who use vehicles in their business. There may be a number of parties involved that may be potentially liable for their part in a truck accident.

For example, truck drivers and their employers follow safety guidelines that allow them to drive for a specific period of time. Studies show accidents can happen when these rules are broken and drivers become fatigued. There may also be maintenance problems with a particular vehicle that caused the accident. These are just some of the types of issues that would need to be investigated further.

There are more trucks than ever on the road, many of them heavy loaders, like those that transport coal and lumber that can cause significant damage. There are many reasons why truck accidents happen. This is why it is important to protect your rights.
