Helping Truck Accident Victims Get The Compensation They Deserve

Because of their size, truck accidents cause more severe injuries than car crashes. A driver is more likely to suffer head injuries, spinal damage or even death. Our Massachusetts truck accident lawyer brings claims to help you recover for your injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, loss of income/wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Handling Of Truck Accident Lawsuits In Massachusetts

Bringing a trucking injury/collision lawsuit is complicated. There are multiple commercial entities involved. There is the driver, the company that hired him or her, and the company that leased the truck. In order to determine who is responsible, it is important to figure out exactly how the accident happened.

The insurance policies for businesses are also complex. The insurance companies that fund them can be more aggressive than those that fund individual policies. Attorney McKenna is a former insurance claims representative. He knows how insurance companies and their attorneys operate, and he uses that knowledge to help his clients fight for maximum recovery.
