There is a system in place to protect and compensate you after an accident. But the trucking companies fight back. This means it is hugely important for a lawyer to move quickly. We will open your claim, file your lawsuit, secure necessary evidence, along with dozens of other steps. All you have to do is see your doctors and get well.
Liability for Truck Accidents
Most truck accidents result from driver negligence. Either the truck driver was not paying attention to the road, loaded up his rig with too much cargo, or got behind the wheel after insufficient sleep. However, it is also possible the mechanic who worked on the truck, the maker of the truck’s parts and even the government to be liable for truck accidents. A mechanic who fails to properly service a big rig might be truly responsible for the subsequent accident. Even a government body that fails to properly mark the road with the appropriate signage has the potential to be found fully or partially liable for the accident.
More often than not, either the truck driver or his or her employer is truly at fault for the accident. Nevertheless, the chances of them admitting fault are slim. A savvy lawyer can navigate the maze for you. We will fight fiercely for you.
Do not Suffer in Silence
Even if you are certain you share some of the responsibility for the accident, it is a mistake to remain quiet. If any other party is even partially at fault, it is in your interest to meet with our truck accident attorney as soon as possible after the collision. You deserve compensation for your suffering. We have covered a wide range of injuries: lacerations, severe bruising, bone breaks, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, and even death.
We am here to fight for every penny to ensure you receive the compensation necessary to cover the cost of ongoing medical care, lost time at work, pain, suffering, the loss of use of a body part, and so on.

A Truly Comprehensive Investigation
Truck accidents are inherently complex. As is often said, there are at least two sides to every story. The truck driver’s account of the collision likely differs from yours. There are several tricks to prove the truth. We have to search out any witnesses. We can engage accident reconstructionists. We can interview the investigating officers. It is also possible the truck was equipped with a black box that recorded the accident, somewhat similar to those used in planes. Unlocking the secrets of this black box and every other potential piece of evidence requires skilled legal work. We will do the digging for you. We won’t leave any stone unturned.
