Don’t Go It Alone

Taking on these claims can be challenging, given the assets many trucking companies possess. In addition to their own lawyers, these companies also carry extensive insurance policies. They will work hard to pay out as little as possible. Given the challenges that come with these claims, it may be in your best interest to work with the Newport News truck accident lawyers at Rutter Mills.


Differences between car and truck accidents

When you take on an injury claim against a trucking company, it is vital you have legal counsel with relevant experience. This is because there are some essential differences between truck and car collisions. Experienced truck accident attorneys in Newport News could advise you on why these differences are important to your claim.

  • Truck accidents are typically more severe. Commercial trucks are much larger than passenger vehicles, making the amount of force they bring to bear in an accident much more significant. Collisions with these trucks are more likely to lead to catastrophic injuries than collisions between two passenger vehicles.
  • Commercial trucks generally carry much larger liability insurance policies than most drivers. Because of this, the chances of obtaining the compensation you are entitled to are much higher. In car accidents, most drivers have much lower limits on what their insurance policies will pay out.
  • Commercial truck drivers also face substantially more regulation than most drivers. In addition to the rules of the road all drivers must abide by, commercial operators must also deal with weight limits, hours of service requirements, and other unique regulations. Failure to comply with these regulations could be evidence of negligence in a crash.

You owe nothing unless we collect

At Rutter Mills, we believe a person injured in a truck accident deserves to pursue their claim without worrying about upfront legal fees. That is why we accept our cases entirely on contingency. If we recover compensation in your claim, only then will we take a portion of the settlement as our fee. If we are unable to recover money for your damages, you will never owe us any legal fees.

Rutter Mills was awesome and worked really hard on my case!! My negotiator was non stop on the insurance companies. Will Nexsen was awesome at explaining everything. He laid out all the different routes we could take against the insurance companies. Thank you guys for the hard work. I appreciate you guys for pushing and going beyond!!

Ray F.

My situation with my health and physical mobility was in a downward spiral. A friend of mine reminded me about Rutter Mills. I immediately got on the phone, and they made me an appointment for a free consultation. I explained everything to them, and the rest is history. I was told by everyone else it would take years to get disability, but with Rutter Mills on the job, I had results within a year. My attorney, along with his staff and the Rutter Mills family, made it happen. 100% . I would recommend them to anyone else in need of help for any situations that arise in your life. Thank you, Rutter Mills and family.

Ray M

After getting hurt at work I had problems with workers compensation right away. Comp was denying claims for medical treatment and not paying correct amount of wages. I was very worried and stressed till I called Rutter Mills. Attorney Jesse Pound with paralegal Jordan Johnson made all my problems go away. Thank you so much for all your help.
