Decatur Truck Accident Lawyer

Big rig semi truck in blue with trailer moving by urban city street with modern building and carsWhen you are driving along in Decatur and you pass a semi truck, you may not think too much about it. But one careless mistake by the truck driver, and everything changes. You become part of the statistic that one person is injured in a truck accident every sixteen minutes. 

A collision with a semi truck can leave you overwhelmed, scared, and worried about how you will recover from your injuries and how you will pay for any treatment you might need.

In some cases, you may be too severely injured to think about any of these things. Semi truck accidents often result in catastrophic injuries, some of which are fatal.

Yet even while you are recovering, the trucking company and their insurer will be putting together their own version of what happened to avoid being blamed.

That is why it is so important to hire an experienced DeKalb County personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after a collision.

Charles Scholle and his team of experienced truck wreck lawyers have been fighting for the rights of our clients for over 25 years. We know how complex these situations are, and we have seen nearly every tactic trucking companies may take to avoid liability.

How Your Truck Accident Attorney Works for You

Intersection accident involving a car and a big rig semi truck with tank semi trailerBy hiring a lawyer as soon as possible, you can make sure that you begin getting the proof you need to build your case right away and get the financial compensation you deserve. After you hire an attorney, they will conduct a thorough investigation of what caused your injuries. They will talk with people who saw the accident happen, and may also visit the scene of the accident to see what happened first hand.

 Perhaps the most relieving service a good personal injury lawyer provides is dealing with the insurance company calls for you. They make sure that insurance companies do not confuse you into settling the case prematurely while you are in what is most likely a physically and emotionally vulnerable state. 

Instead, the lawyer will obtain all the medical evidence from the doctor to find out the extent of your injury and how much compensation you should receive, whether you have sustained a minor bone injury or traumatic brain injury. Some law firms then demand a settlement from the insurance company and take the first offer to close your case as quickly as possible.

Scholle Law does things differently. We will also try to negotiate with the insurance company to get your money as quickly as possible. However, if they refuse to make a reasonable offer, our attorneys are skilled litigators who will take your case to court and argue for your rights in front of a judge and/or jury.

If you have been the victim of a large truck accident, you deserve representation from an attorney who cares. While other law firms focus on how many cases they can close in a year, these “settlement mills” seem to care more about quick money than the well-being of their clients and virtually never take a case to trial. 

At Scholle Law, we give personal attention to every client who walks through our door and make sure their needs are being met, even if it means taking your case to court. We understand how traumatic a truck accident can be, which is why we are here to address any questions or concerns you may have.
