Experienced 18-Wheeler Accident Attorneys
Truck accidents that involve 18-wheelers are often more devastating; it also requires a more sophisticated investigation and a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Receiving compensation for an 18-wheeler accident is not as easy as you might think. Truck companies are usually not sympathetic to victims, even when the company is at fault. That is when you need an 18-wheeler accident attorney. At The Knoll Law Firm, we will fight the insurance companies for compensation you or your family deserve.
NOT ALL INJURIES ARE IMMEDIATELY OBVIOUS
Injuries to the brain, neck, back, hip, knee and leg are some of the most common, but every part of the body is vulnerable depending on how the car accident happened. Injuries to bones are easy to see, while injuries to soft tissues like muscles, ligaments and tendons, and injuries to internal organs are not always apparent immediately after the auto accident and this is why it is vital to speak with an experienced Louisiana auto accident attorney. Soft tissue and internal injuries are no less serious or painful, and require no less diligent care just because they aren’t felt right away or visible to the naked eye.
We Can Help You Understand Your Legal Rights
Frequently Asked Questions
The legal process can be very confusing and we know that you may have many questions and concerns regarding your case. To help relieve initial uncertainty about your legal rights, The Knoll Law Firm has compiled a list of frequently asked questions by our clients after an accident:
Q: What are my rights after an accident?
A: After an accident due to another’s negligence you have the right to be compensated for property damage, loss of use, physical pain, mental anguish, physical disfigurement, physical impairment, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, loss of consortium, and loss of services. You have the right to access a Court to resolve your dispute.
Q: Will I be compensated for my pain and suffering?
A: Yes, pain and suffering is a type of damage that can be compensated in a personal injury case. The amount of compensation is directly related to severity of the injury. A claimant can recover damages for past and future pain and suffering.
Q: How long can a claim last?
A: If a claim is resolved prior to litigation, then it generally will settle 3 to 6 months after the claimant finishes medical treatment. Cases that go into litigation can take several years based on the case, but average is generally about two years.
Q: If I do not have health insurance or a premium care physician, how and where can I get treatment for my injuries?
A: It is against the law for a Hospital’s Emergency Room to refuse to give emergency treatment. Medical treatment may also be obtained by way of a Letter of Protection (LOP) from an attorney. A letter of protection tells a provider that you have a claim pending and the attorney will pay the medical bills out of the proceeds of that claim. Not all health care providers accept letters of protection.
Q: How much money will an attorney cost me?
A: Most personal injury and death cases are taken on a contingency fees basis. This means the client pays the attorney nothing out of his/her pocket up front and the attorney receives a percentage of the proceeds collected. If nothing is collected the attorney is paid nothing.
Q: What if I cannot work due to my injuries?
A: After an accident due to another’s negligence you have the right to be compensated for lost income, even if you are paid by your employer under paid vacation or personal time off.
Q: How do I determine if I have a case?
A: If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident then you may have the right to compensation for your loss. Every case is different and requires legal analysis by a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorney.
