Why People Trust Greenblatt & Veliev

Significant Court Victories 

Our lawyers secured a nearly $300,000 settlement for a client who was in a rear-end vehicle collision. In another case, our client was awarded $300,000 for a bicycle accident settlement. Should our Rockville, MD, law office represent you, our attorneys will present a strong case to hold all responsible parties—which could include the driver, their employer, and their insurance company—responsible for the truck accident. 

Multilingual

Our firm values effective communication with our clients. Our team speaks English, Spanish, Azerbaijan, Russian, and Polish. We are committed to making this difficult time as easy as we can for you, so whenever possible, we will communicate in your preferred language. 

Comprehensive Legal Services

Our attorneys work on a variety of personal injury cases, including product liability and car accidents, and we understand that many personal injuries are caused by parties who were nowhere near the accident itself. If your accident was caused by a faulty truck part or negligence on the part of the truck driver's employer, we can prove how their actions (or inaction) resulted in your losses.

You Only Pay If You Collect 

Our truck accident attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning you only pay if you receive a settlement or jury award. And because you pay nothing unless and until we achieve justice, all victims can afford our services. 

Recognized Attorneys

Our attorneys have been recognized by Super Lawyers, a leading legal rating service, for multiple years. Trust your case to leaders in the field of personal injury litigation.

Truck Accidents Can Happen Anywhere

You may think truck accidents only happen during rush hour or on busy highways, but the truth is that a truck crash can happen in the most unexpected places. In Baltimore County, homeowners had a truck accident occur at their front door when a semi-truck crashed into their front yard.

In Washington D.C., a cyclist was killed after she was struck by a large commercial truck near George Washington University, an area where students, faculty, and others frequently travel on foot. 

According to the National Safety Council, 107,000 large trucks were involved in injury crashes in 2020

From your own home to walkable public areas, truck accidents can occur virtually anywhere. If you're a victim of a truck accident and suffer a personal injury, our truck accident attorneys can file a truck accident claim and help you rebuild your life.

What to Do If You're Been In a Truck Crash

Preserve Video and Photos 

If you took any photos or videos after your truck accident, be sure to back them up on a hard drive or cloud service rather than letting the only copies exist solely on your phone.

See a Doctor

You may not experience any symptoms of an injury right away, but that doesn't mean you don't need medical attention. A doctor can check you for internal injuries that may not be apparent at first. Keep all medical records of your doctor visits after your truck accident, as these can be used to support your case for maximum compensation. 

Gather Contact Information

If there are eyewitnesses to the truck accident, you should gather their contact information. They may be willing to testify on your behalf and may have photos or videos of the truck accident. 

Do Not Talk to Insurance Companies

An insurance company or attorney representing the truck driver may contact you after a car accident or semi-truck accident. Please remember that it is their job to minimize your claim and protect their clients' best interests. Do not speak to them, and do not accept any offers made to you on behalf of the truck driver or their employer.

Types of Losses A Jury Award or Settlement Can Cover

Medical Bills and Rehabilitation 

If your truck accident leaves you with long-term injuries, you will face towering medical bills. Your compensation can cover all medical expenses, including future medical attention and ongoing physical therapy. 

Lost Wages

You may be out of work for a period of time. In some cases, truck accident victims are never able to work again. Depending on the severity of your personal injury, you may be out of work for months, years, or even permanently. Lost wages can be recouped through a settlement or verdict, along with projected wages you would have earned if you were physically able.

Property Damage

Due to the large size of semi-trucks and commercial trucks, your vehicle will likely be totaled. By filing a truck accident lawsuit, we can pursue compensation for any property damage you experience as a result of the accident. 

Emotional Pain and Suffering

Surviving a car accident involving a big truck can be traumatizing. Your compensation will account for your need for psychological support after an accident involving a semi-truck or any other type of commercial truck.

Who Can Be Held Accountable in Your Truck Accident Case?

The Truck Driver

If the truck driver involved in your crash wasn't watching the road, drove at a dangerous speed, or failed to obey traffic laws, they can be deemed legally responsible for the truck accident.

The Trucking Company

If the trucking company failed to properly maintain their trucks or put unqualified drivers on the road, we can hold them liable for your personal injuries. 

State or Local Government

If the roadway where your truck accident occurred is unsuitable for driving, we can illustrate to a jury that the state or local government has been neglectful and created unsafe driving conditions. 

It's important to remember that part manufacturers can also be held accountable if their faulty product contributed to the accident. Our firm can file a product liability suit on your behalf if defective machinery has caused a semi-truck accident that resulted in your injury.

Fatal Truck Accidents 

If your loved one was killed in a fatal truck accident or car accident, our Rockville, Maryland, attorneys can file a wrongful death suit. The truck driver responsible for the fatal accident can be liable for funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

We know that no amount of financial compensation can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, it can ease your burdens, allowing you to focus on grieving with your family and friends. Our truck accident attorneys are here to help you achieve justice.
