Brad Pistotnik and his personal injury law firm can help you if you have been in a large truck accident.
Truck accidents have become more frequent over the past few years and consequently inflicting thousands of injuries upon innocent motorist and pedestrians. According to the Department of Transportation (DOT), every year there are approximately 89,000 injuries due to truck accidents. Yet it should be noted that while all traffic accidents can cause personal injuries, truck accidents tend to inflict more substantial damage because of their disproportionate weight and size in comparison to all other motor vehicles on the roadways. If you were involved in a truck accident and sustained a personal injury, you could be eligible to collect compensation for your medical expenses, lost of wages, and pain and suffering. However, in order to do this, you must be able to prove that the truck driver or trucking company was at fault or negligent. This is not always an easy task especially for a traditional personal injury lawyer. The laws regulating the trucking industry are not the same as the traffic laws that apply to regular motorist. That is why it is important to obtain the specific legal service of a truck accident lawyer. Only a lawyer that concentrates in this field will have the experience and understanding of the trucking laws to know how to best use this knowledge to prove negligence or fault and get you the justice and compensation you are entitled. Brad Pistotnik concentrates his practice on large truck accident cases. In fact, Brad Pistotnik wrote the book on Truck Accidents and how they kill people on Kansas highways, Truck Accidents Kill.
