Colliding with a large commercial vehicle, such as a semi, is a scary occurrence. Not only could you be left with serious or traumatic injuries, you may have anxiety about the medical treatment you will need and whether your injuries will affect your ability to return to work. But above all else, you may be wondering whether the negligent truck driver or careless trucking company will be held liable for their actions and whether they will cover the expenses you’re about to face.
At Helton, Cody & Associates, PLLC, we have more than two decades of experience handling personal injury matters for people throughout the Hickory area and western North Carolina, including truck accident cases. We help accident victims hold negligent drivers and companies responsible for their actions and seek the compensation they need now and in the future.
In our state, truck drivers are required to carry higher limits of liability on their insurance policies than automobile owners. When you obtain our services, we act as your liaison with insurers, making sure you are receiving the full coverage you need and deserve.
Because of his experience as a former insurance defense lawyer, attorney Lyndon R. Helton knows the tactics insurance companies use to get out of paying a legitimate claim. We will fight to hold at-fault drivers accountable for their actions and will make sure the insurance company pays what is owed.
If we take your case to court, we will provide comprehensive counsel as well as prepare and file all necessary documentation on your behalf before any hearing or court proceeding begins. We know how to identify and prove the causes of truck accidents, read and interpret maintenance and driver logs, as well as show when a driver or company has violated state and/or federal trucking regulations. We understand that responding quickly after a crash can mean the difference between finding critical evidence that supports your claim and missing out on needed compensation.
