Trucking Accidents

When a big rig collides with a smaller vehicle, guess who wins. Our experience in litigating truck accidents enables us to know what needs to be done and how to do it quickly. Trucking companies and their insurance companies have attorneys and investigators ready to take action shortly after an accident happens. In major truck accidents, it is not uncommon for the trucking company to begin their investigation minutes after the collision occurs.

 

We stand ready to help you even the playing field. Our attorneys have successfully litigated numerous truck accident cases. Most truck drivers are good drivers who do their best. Unfortunately, many trucking companies and some drivers cut too many corners to try to make that extra dollar. In the cases we have handled, we have seen a pattern of:

  • Sleep deprived drivers
  • Falsified log books
  • Trucks that have inadequate or defective brakes
  • Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Over weight tractor trailers

 

Often accident reconstruction specialists are needed to successfully prosecute a case involving a semi truck accident. The faster the specialist is on the scene, the more the specialist is apt to see. We have even reenacted truck accidents to be able to show the jury what actually happened.

 

Truck drivers themselves are often the victim of another driver’s negligence. Our firm has successfully helped numerous truck drivers receive fair compensation. We know how some companies treat their drivers after they are injured and can no longer work. We stand ready to help.
