The Cincinnati Bengals, our hometown team, are going to the Super Bowl! Much ink has been spilled about how this happened–from discussions about coaching, to scheme, to momentum– but, at the heart of this great run, was the construction of a championship-caliber team. The Bengals had the right pieces at the right moment to overcome insurmountable odds.
If you or a loved one are hit by a commercial vehicle (i.e. semi-truck), you also face insurmountable odds: a big-pocketed trucking company, complex government regulations, and a rush to hide or destroy key evidence. According to the most recent data, large truck crashes injured 182,000 people and killed 5,244 people in a single year. You need a championship team of your own. Like this Bengals team, at Rittgers & Rittgers we have the key components of the championship team that you need to take on your opponent.
Playmakers – Along with Joe Burrow, the Bengals are led by the three-headed monster at wide receiver of Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd. At Rittgers & Rittgers, we have a team of lawyers that have resolved over a dozen seven-figure truck wreck cases. Our legal “playmakers” take several cases a year to trial and do not back down from big trucking companies.
Specialists – The unlikely MVP of the Bengals post-season has been first-year kicker Evan McPherson. On the Rittgers team, we have a go-to team of experts in trucking safety, neurology, orthopedics, and economics that we can quickly activate to build-up every aspect of your claim.
Financing – The Bengals have the most cap space of any playoff team ($48.7 million) to deploy this offseason to retain key stars and add top free agents (*cough* offensive lineman *cough*). Similarly, the Rittgers team–comprised of multiple offices and twenty-one lawyers across several practice groups–has the war chest you need to build your trucking case up to the fullest. Remember, a truck wreck case can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars to litigate. The Rittgers team has the “cap space” to go the distance.
Accolades – Bengals players have been showered with accolades for their contributions to this Super Bowl run. Joe Burrow is 2nd Team All Pro and is the Comeback Player of the Year. Ja’Marr Chase, and Trey Hendrickson were selected to the Pro Bowl. The Rittgers team similarly has earned several awards and recognitions for representing people injured in truck and other automobile collisions. We are members of the Million-Dollar Advocate Forum. We have an army of “Super Lawyers” as voted on by our peers. We are asked to speak at CLEs around the country and are invited to attend and participate in trucking seminars. We count among our ranks a member of the Trucking Litigation Group of the American Association of Justice—the premiere plaintiffs’ group in the nation.
While the Super Bowl only comes up once a year, the Rittgers team is working 24/7 to take on big trucking companies. Every case is our Super Bowl. If you or a loved one are hit by a truck, you need the championship team at Rittgers & Rittgers on your side. Who Dey!
