Interstate 10 sees significant truck traffic as an east-west artery in the northwest part of the state. But trucking accidents are not isolated to our state highways; they can occur at busy intersections in town or on smaller rural roads. Professional drivers can make mistakes like the rest of us, but these accidents can be life-altering with the size differential between vehicles.
When you or a loved one is seriously injured in an auto accident involving a semi or other heavy truck, you need an experienced attorney to fight on your behalf.
With an office in Pensacola, attorney James M. Burns has helped injury and truck accident victims across northwest Florida and southern Alabama. When your life is turned upside down by an unexpected crash, he will handle the legal issues. This will allow your family to focus on recovery and dealing with a new normal.
Tenacious Advocacy To Defend Your Interests
When an accident is fatal or causes catastrophic injuries, the first question to answer is what caused this to happen in the first place. Was a driver working more hours than allowed by federal regulations? Could something have taken the driver's eyes from the road? Were the brakes on their last legs after many years of neglect?
Lawyer James M. Burns will conduct an independent investigation as a first step in holding the responsible party to account. He will also:
- Help you obtain appropriate and available medical treatment to assist you on the road to recovery
- Handle all communication with the insurance company to protect your interests
- Pursue maximum compensation from all possible sources, including an employer in certain cases
Sometimes these cases can be resolved prior to trial, but James M. Burns prepares each case as though trial will be necessary.
