Truck Accidents

You against the trucking industry is not a fair contest

When an 18-wheeler collides with a car, occupants of the passenger vehicle likely experience catastrophic or even fatal consequences. In addition to the extensive nature of injuries suffered in commercial truck crashes, the families of the injured are often forced to deal with the complex and discouraging process to get full compensation from responsible insurance companies.

If you are involved in an accident with a commercial truck, several state and federal agencies might be involved. The trucking company’s investigator may arrive on the scene before the ambulance and tow trucks are gone. With seemingly unlimited resources at the trucking company’s disposal, you can be at a severe disadvantage when it comes to negotiating a settlement. Again, it’s not a fair fight.

A number of factors might be involved in determining the cause of a truck accident. Working with an accident reconstruction specialist, our truck accident lawyers will determine the cause of your wreck:

  • Was the driver of the 18-wheeler drunk, sleep-deprived or speeding?
  • Was the accident in part caused by a hazardous roadway?
  • Did a dump truck back out of a construction site?
  • Was the garbage truck not equipped with proper mirrors
  • Was the crash caused by defective equipment?
