Handling Insurance Bad Faith Claims

Insurance companies are diligent about collecting your premiums every month. Unfortunately, they are equally determined to avoid paying compensation whenever possible, even for legitimate claims. When an insurance company’s bad faith denial of benefits forces you to resort to litigation, having an aggressive, experienced lawyer to represent you can make all the difference to the outcome of your case.

Experts Support Your Case

We bring in top experts such as trauma doctors, chiropractors, forensics engineers, mechanics, and collision reconstruction analysts to help build your case and obtain the best possible settlement. We find that it is a great advantage to have articulate experts to deliver compelling testimony about the cause of your crash and the extent of your injuries.

Paducah Law Firm Helps The Injured Pursue Compensation for Their Harms and Losses

Tractor-trailer rigs are heavier and larger than cars and consequently cause more deaths and debilitating injuries when they are involved in crashes. These tragic events could often be avoided if truck drivers and companies followed the rules of the road. Oakes Law Firm can help you bring negligent parties to justice and recover from trucking crashes involving:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving behavior
  • Stimulant abuse, such as methamphetamines
  • Driving in conditions that demand extreme caution, such as snow, ice, or fog
  • Unlicensed or untrained drivers
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Mechanical defects
  • Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers

We have experience representing the injured in many types of commercial vehicle crash cases.

Determined Lawyers Ready to Act

Trucking companies will descend upon the scene of a crash within hours to collect (and sometimes destroy) evidence and figure out how to reduce their responsibility to you. When the debris is cleared away, vital evidence can disappear, and so may your opportunity to receive the total amount of compensation you deserve. We can take steps to preserve the evidence and punish the company if they destroy evidence. We understand the anguish that follows a catastrophic truck crash. We will refuse to allow a negligent company to take advantage of the chaos surrounding the ordeal to lessen its responsibility.

Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve

We cannot ease the heartache resulting from your losses, but we can advocate for your right to receive just compensation. We employ proactive strategies to obtain damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. If you have endured the devastating loss of a loved one in a trucking crash, we can file a wrongful death suit on your behalf. We employ tenacious courtroom strategies and diligent negotiation techniques to ensure you receive the best possible recovery.

Because we believe all injured people have the right to zealous representation, our firm does not charge you until we win your case.
