Any kind of truck accident can cause serious injuries, but crashes involving tractor-trailers can be especially devastating. For many people who were injured in a tractor-trailer accident in Middle Georgia, their lives are never the same. The Macon law firm Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC helps the victims of tractor-trailer crashes and their families.
A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. When it crashes into a car or other vehicle, it can cause tremendous damage, especially at high speeds. Victims can be left seriously hurt, and may never fully recover from their injuries. Truck accident attorney Jon R. Hawk is dedicated to helping those injured in these accidents get the financial compensation they need to rebuild their lives.
Tractor-trailer accidents can be difficult to resolve, because there can be many different companies involved. For example, a collision could involve different companies that:
Hired the driver
Own the truck
Own the trailer
Made the cargo in the trailer
Packaged the cargo in the trailer
Loaded the truck
Manufactured the truck
Each company also has its own insurance carrier, and their own attorneys, making recovering compensation even more complicated. When there are so many competing interests, it can be easy for your needs to be overlooked and even ignored.
Jon doesn’t let that happen. He fights to make your case heard and your needs met. He knows how to hold negligent parties responsible and is proud of the case results that have helped so many clients.
When you have Jon as your lawyer, you have an entire legal team fighting for you. We investigate the accident and look for evidence that proves negligence. This involves reviewing all documentation, including medical records, accident reports, hours-of-service logs, safety and maintenance records. We locate witnesses and interview them ourselves. We learn for ourselves how the accident happened and who was responsible.
In tractor-trailer accidents, several parties could be at fault. Jon will determine your needs and hold these parties accountable. He builds a strong case that brings the parties to the negotiating table, and is often able to work out a settlement that works for you. But if they won’t negotiate, Jon will fight for you in court.
If you were injured in a tractor-trailer accident, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible. Acting fast can help you build a stronger case. Talk to Jon R. Hawk about your accident.
