If you’re in the process of filing a personal injury claim, you’ll benefit from understanding how it works and what a successful claim looks like. When it comes to proving you’re deserving of compensation for your injuries and losses, your attorney will need to build a claim that meets the burden of proof. This legal term refers to being able to believe something beyond a certain level of doubt.

The lawyers at Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC understand how confusing and complicated civil cases can seem when you’re dealing with legal terminology. That’s why we make sure to break the information down for our clients so it’s digestible and they feel comfortable with how their cases are being handled. Let’s take a closer look at how the burden of proof applies to negligence claims.

Large trucks require more training and caution to drive because there are so many variables to manage while driving. When truck drivers lose control, rollover accidents are a very real possibility and are incredibly dangerous. In fact, 48% of occupant deaths in large trucks are caused by rollovers, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

When it comes to how often they occur, truck rollovers happen every day. Even though truck drivers have tons of training and have to be certified, American Truck Business Services (ATBS) reports that driver error is the main reason that trucks overturn. Drivers misjudging a turn, speeding, or driving distractedly could all be considered driver error.

Since truck rollover accidents are common, what are some other causes?

You might think determining fault after an accident is clean cut. But not all accidents provide enough proof of who caused the collision and exactly what happened leading up to the wreck. More specifically, sideswipe accidents work the same way.

When two cars travelling parallel to each other collide, it’s considered a sideswipe accident. Even though you might think in that scenario that one car was following all the rules and the other person created the accident, it might not be so obvious in the eyes of the law.

When someone sustains a serious brain injury, it can put their life in jeopardy. The CDC states that traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability in the U.S. When the brain suffers a blow, bump, or jolt, the resulting injuries can affect a person’s ability to communicate, their memory, speech, and motor function. If someone acted negligently and caused the accident that led to a traumatic brain injury, the injured person may be eligible to seek compensation. If your loved one has suffered a brain injury, they may be unable to do this on their own. Our reliable personal injury lawyers can help get your loved one justice.

Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC has advocated for the rights of those who were wrongfully injured for years. When a traumatic brain injury puts your life on hold, we will fight for you to get the compensation you need so you can focus on recovering from the accident without worrying about medical expenses.

First responders are almost always the first to arrive on the scene of an emergency. Firefighters, police officers, paramedics, and others put their lives on the line every day without giving it a second thought. While they work to save others who have been in various accidents, they could be putting their own wellbeing at risk. When a first responder is injured in Maryland, they have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim.

In addition to the traditional workers’ comp benefits, first responders are entitled to enhanced benefits because of the work they do. In order to maximize your compensation as an injured first responder, it’s important to work with an experienced law firm. At Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC, we’re prepared to ensure you have access to the benefits you need to recover, so you can return to do what you do best—saving lives.
