"After being wrongfully terminated, Ryan fought hard to get the justice I deserved!"
After being told I didn't have a case from three other attorneys, I contacted Ryan who took my case. After being wrongfully terminated, Ryan fought hard to get the justice I deserved! Jeannetta was great and kept me updated without me having to harass them lol... I won my lawsuit and was pleased with the results. I highly recommend Ryan and his team Jeanetta! They will give you the justice you deserve!

Do You Have to Accept an Insurance Settlement Offer?

In short, no. And refraining from doing so until you have consulted with an accident attorney is a wise move. Commercial insurance companies will do everything they can to pay as little as possible for your injuries. To ensure a settlement amount reflects what you deserve, have a lawyer, like ours at Perry & Young, review the offer and speak with you about your options for pursuing fair compensation.

Common Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Some of the most common causes of commercial vehicle accidents include:

  • Fatigue: Drivers may fail to follow federal regulations concerning driving hours and rest breaks. As a result, they could be fatigued and have slower reaction times or make poor decisions. 
  • Carelessness: Unfortunately, drivers use cell phones while behind the wheel or are intentionally reckless when passing cars, turning, or changing lanes.
  • Alcohol or Drugs: Consuming alcohol, smoking marijuana, or taking prescription drugs can all slow reaction times and impair a driver’s ability to safely operate their vehicle.
  • Road Hazards: Inadequate signage, road damage, and other hazards can all lead to collisions that cause serious injuries or wrongful deaths.
  • Defective Truck Components: Tires, brakes, and other critical vehicle components can fail due to defective design or manufacturing.
