Protecting Your Rights After A Trucking Accident

Commercial trucks such as 18-wheelers or big rigs are the largest vehicles on the road. Their size and the speed at which semis move make them a constant danger to pedestrians and other motorists. Sadly, accidents involving these trucks are often serious or even fatal. If you have been hurt, or if a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in an accident involving a commercial truck, you need to take action.

At Hawn & Coughlin, LLP, our experienced Bend, Oregon, personal injury and car accident lawyers help you take on the insurance companies to get the settlement you need to get back on your feet.

Commercial Trucking Accident Causes

In order to get the best possible recovery for our clients, our experienced attorneys and staff painstakingly reconstruct all of the facts of our clients' accidents. Proper investigation into the causes of an accident can greatly affect possible compensation. Some common factors that can have an impact on settlements include:

  • Truck driver negligence
  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Negligent maintenance
  • Drug and alcohol use by the truck driver
  • Overly aggressive schedules and deadlines

If your loved one was walking down the street and was hit and killed by a car, truck or any other motor vehicle, you owe it to your family to pursue compensation for his or her wrongful death. Hawn & Coughlin, LLP, represents clients who have lost family members because of the negligence of someone else.

Get Compensation For Big-Rig Accidents

When accidents involve semi trucks, someone is usually going to come away with accident injuries. If you have been hurt or had a loved one killed in a semi accident, you need to take every possible opportunity to get compensation for your injury or loss so that it sends a message to trucking companies that their drivers must maintain the highest level of safety on the roads. At Hawn & Coughlin, LLP, we work hard so you receive compensation. Depending on the facts of your case, we will seek financial damages for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and wrongful death.
