Semitrucks, 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers are large, multi-ton pieces of machinery. When these vehicles crash at freeway speeds, the results often leave victims with severe, or even sometimes fatal injuries.
San Diego Attorney Michael J. Kielty is committed to helping truck accident victims and their family members pursue the compensation they need to make up for lost wages and medical bills, and to recover damages for pain and suffering.
The best way to recover the compensation you deserve is through preparation and documentation. When it comes to personal injury claims, attorney Kielty leaves no stone unturned. He will thoroughly investigate the scene of the accident, analyze truck maintenance reports for evidence of improper care or machinery defects, and he will review driver logs for service violations, indications of distracted driving and for violations of federal law concerning hours spent on the road.
Mr. Kielty also works closely with medical professionals and vocational experts to develop a true picture and understanding of a client's injuries, and the long-term impact these injuries are expected to have on a client's life and livelihood. Only when attorney Kielty is armed with all of this information will he begin to negotiate with insurance companies. If a settlement cannot be reached, Mr. Kielty is prepared to fight for your interests in the courtroom.
Located in the Scripps Ranch area of San Diego, the Law Office of Michael J. Kielty helps truck accident victims throughout San Diego County bring personal injury claims that protect - and maximize - each client's right to compensation.
Attorney Kielty has over 33 years of legal experience. At the beginning of his career, Mr. Kielty worked as an insurance defense lawyer. His time spent working for the other side helps to benefit his clients today. He knows the methods insurance companies use to help minimize an accident victim's claim. He also knows the evidence and strategies that help force insurance companies to come to the table with fair settlement offers.
