Below are two of the many cases we has successfully handled.
Our client was riding his motorcycle when he was hit from behind by a fully-loaded transportation company tractor-trailer. It is a miracle that he survived. One leg was crushed. After several surgeries, the leg had to be amputated. Fred and Eric flew to the city where our client was hospitalized and talked with him about his case. After they were hired, they aggressively pursued compensation from the company, whose team of lawyers initially denied fault. Undaunted, Fred and Eric built a winning case and won over $5 million for our client. At the same time, they traveled to see our client several times and connected him with one of the best prosthetists in the U.S. so that he could have the best prosthetic leg available, even before the settlement payout.
A young man was driving down an icy highway, unaware that a tractor-trailer had jackknifed on the slippery road. Unable to stop when he saw the vehicle blocking the road, the young man ran into the truck and tragically died at the scene. The parents initially did not know if they had a case. Could they sue under state wrongful death laws when the person who died was an adult child? Was the truck driver at fault even though he was driving the speed limit on icy roads? They contact our law firm and hired Eric, who told them that parents of adult children can sue for wrongful death and that he could do an investigation to find out if there was negligence. Eric’s investigation found black-box-data evidence that the trucker had been driving too fast for the conditions, which is considered negligence under the law, especially for drivers of big rigs. The enormity of the family’s loss could never be rectified, by they got answers, and, by obtaining significant compensation, they held the driver and company responsible.
Our law firm uses technology to win cases.
We stay on the cutting edge of technological advances to present persuasive evidence and get multi-million-dollar settlements and jury verdicts. Another thing that sets our law firm apart is that we know the federal laws governing trucking companies and their drivers inside and out. Attorney Eric Hageman teaches other lawyers about these laws at legal seminars. When you hire Eric, you hire experience, skill and aggressive representation.
Investigating an accident involving a car, motorcycle, van, bus or bicycle, is extremely expensive. When you hire an attorney, you will need to make sure that the law firm has the resources to investigate and win your case. Our law firm has won millions for accident victims. This means we have the resources to hire the best accident reconstruction specialists, animationists and other professionals to give you the winning edge.
When we sue a trucking firm on behalf of a client, we negotiate with the company’s legal team and its insurer. The insurance company is involved because it ultimately pays the victim and his or her family. In many cases, more than one insurance company is involved. To learn more, read “Truck Accident FAQ“.
If you or a loved one has been in an accident with a semitrailer, you have probably already been contacted by the insurer for the driver, the owner of the freight or another potentially liable party. You should not talk to the other side’s insurer. Its goal is to make sure it pays out as little as possible.
Our law firm has negotiated several settlements of over $2 million dollars. This is only after we have built a case that they know we have a good chance of winning at trial. Because of our success at doing this, our law firm has the resources to hire accident reconstruction experts and others to make your case one that will persuade a jury to give you a full and adequate amount of money.
