Expertise on Comprehensive Truck Accident Investigation
With over 25 years of successfully recovering truck accident claims, Steve Caya is skilled at accident reconstruction and employing the necessary experts. He will follow all leads, including examining the driver’s log to prove that a truck operator may have been driving past the allowed amount of hours. Research will be conducted to determine if the truck driver was in violation of any other state or federal regulations that truckers must adhere to as well. We will make sure to name all relevant parties if the truck was leased, owned by another company and contracted to the driver, or part of a government fleet.
We will work closely with a network of experts to assess the long-term implications of your serious injuries resulting from a tractor-trailer collision. These experts may include accident reconstruction experts, neurosurgeons, vocational rehabilitation professionals as well as actuaries and life-care planners.
The overarching goal for Steve Caya is to seek full and fair compensation for your losses. He is also committed to your future and will help you develop a financial plan that takes into account your limited ability to work, adapting your home if you are disabled, and the cost associated with rehabilitation and other medical expenses such as counseling and medical equipment you will need for the future.
We know how to aggressively negotiate for this type of compensation, and in some cases punitive damages, and we are also fully prepared to pursue your case in court, if necessary. In many cases, compensation awards are significant. We will also assist you in navigating the potential tax implications of your settlement.
