"Here are six steps we take to help you learn more about your semi-truck crash case. I handle semi-truck crash cases every day.  Assisting me are four full-time paralegals who average 14+ years of experience. We know the experts, the insurance companies, and the judges.  I would be honored to represent you, and share what I have learned over 25+ years.”   Mike Burman, Attorney at Law.

  • 1 - Go to the scene ASAP: Small pieces of evidence can become big facts.
  • ‍2 - ‍Interview witnesses and law enforcement:  Our retired police detective carefully interviews witnesses.  I often conduct interviews with key witnesses myself.
  • 3 - Secure photographs, video, and the “black box”:  Closed circuit Tv and video monitoring are usually erased in a week. I need to get on top of this evidence quickly before it is lost forever.   “Black box” computers inside the vehicles need to be downloaded before a vehicle is crushed or repaired.
  • 4 - Preserve evidence known only to the trucker and the trucking company: I cannot tell you how many times crucial information or documentation from a trucker or trucking company helps a case after I took the proper steps to preserve that evidence.  
  • 5 - Provide you a free Case Evaluation:  The Case Evaluation addresses your concerns and helps you understand what your case is about.  How much time will the case take?  What compensation is recoverable?  Questions like these are handled in the Case Evaluation.
  • 6 - Provide you with a Plan of Action customized for your needs:  When you hire me, I will take the Case Evaluation and write up a customized Plan of Action with easy-to-follow steps for a good start to your case.  The Plan of Action is uploaded to your free Burman Law Client Portal (we’ll open the client portal on your smartphone).  Or, if you don’t want to use the Client Portal, we can mail it to you.  You need no money to hire me. My fees are in writing (I am cheaper than most competitors).

“My staff is knowledgeable and easy to work with.   We keep you updated about your case.  You will have no trouble reaching me when you need my help or have a question.”  Mike Burman

WHAT DOES BURMAN LAW DO IN A SEMI-TRUCK AND TRAILER ACCIDENT AND INJURY CASES?

At Burman Law, we take action. We know how to apply the rules of the road that control truck drivers and truck companies.  We understand the biomechanics behind personal injuries. Burman Law Attorney, Mike Burman, is a member of the American Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys.  Mike maintains his professional skills with monthly training and consultations with fellow truck injury attorneys. Mike applies this experience and training to each case by:

  • Understanding the mechanism of injury causing pain and suffering or death
  • Looking for hard-to-find injuries in personal injury cases, such as traumatic brain injuries
  • Preserve critical evidence before it is destroyed, lost, or fades away
  • Search for CCTV video/audio, car accident cameras, police videos, and truck accident cameras
  • Locate and interview witnesses
  • Visit the scene of the case to determine what experts are needed to preserve and develop the evidence
  • Download the “black box” speed and distance computer on the “at-fault” vehicle
  • Download on-board video or communication devices that record speed and distance 
  • Calendar the statute of limitations so the date is not missed on your personal injury or wrongful death case

Insurance Company Tactics

Insurance companies and insurance adjusters use several tactics to deny claims and pay less than the real value of a personal injury or wrongful death claim in a truck accident case.  Some of the most common insurance company tactics that we see are:

  • Blaming accident victims for their own injuries
  • Hiding evidence about the at-fault truck driver or insurance company
  • Reducing the value of personal injury or wrongful death by misinterpreting medical records
  • Denying the severe injuries are related to the crash
  • Making low settlement offers for pre-existing or age-related factors in personal injury cases
  • Delaying claims as long as possible until you must accept a low settlement offer
  • Making lowball settlement offers to reduce the amount you think is reasonable
  • Telling personal injury victims they do not need to hire a lawyer

How Is Burman Law Paid?

We are paid a percentage of the money recovered in your case.  Many personal injury lawyers now charge a fee of 40% to begin your case.  Our fee to begin a personal injury or wrongful death case truck accident case has been 1/3 for more than twenty-five plus years.  We do not spend time or money on expensive Tv Ads, and we pass that savings on to you.
