Building the Strongest Case for Your Claim
Injuries sustained in truck accidents are often severe and debilitating. Trucking companies realize their insurance costs will increase if a driver of theirs is held at fault in an accident involving catastrophic injuries or fatalities.
As a result, truck drivers are trained in what to say and what not to say after an accident. It’s not uncommon for truck drivers to try and blame an accident on car drivers, alleging they followed too closely or cut in front of them.
We have been helping injured West Virginians for more than 30 years
To establish a truck driver’s negligence, Stewart Bell, PLLC investigates the scene of an accident using accident reconstructionists, highway engineers and eye-witness testimony.
In the case of accidents involving semi-tractor trailers we may: analyze a truck’s on-board black box, review the driver’s driving log, their training records and driving history, the trucks maintenance history, and any design or manufacturing defects that potentially could have contributed to the accident. In these ways, we will tell a compelling story about your accident and build the strongest case for you.
We demand financial compensation within the context of an accident victim’s life. Our office uses the following tools to personalize the cases we represent:
- Day-in-the-life videos that show how your life has been adversely affected
- Care planner testimony to detail the medical treatment and care you will need
- Economic impact analysis study that establishes the financial impact of your injuries
- Eyewitness testimony from family regarding the impact of your injuries on them
