Have you or someone you know been injured in a collision involving a commercial truck or semi-truck? The injuries sustained by those involved in a trucking accident are often very serious and sometimes fatal. This is often the result of the sheer difference in size between a passenger vehicle and a commercial truck. For those victims who survive, their injuries may result in permanent disability and require long term rehabilitation.
Attorney Bruce A. Kugler can help you seek compensation for your injuries as the result of negligence of another party. You might be entitled to damages. Damages refers to a money settlement prior to a lawsuit or given to you after the filing of a lawsuit. Damages could include money to compensate you for past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering, emotional distress, and damage to your vehicle. Trucking accidents happen for many reasons including:
- Driver error such as failure to yield the right of way, speeding, or following too closely
- Distractions from inside and outside of the vehicle
- Driver intoxication
- Poor road design and maintenance
- Vehicle defects such as a tire blowout or a brake failure

Settlements frequently happen before a law suit is even filed. Attorney Bruce A. Kugler will negotiate on your behalf with the goal of obtaining a reasonable settlement in the quickest and easiest way possible.
