Hundreds of Millions of Dollars Won
When large semi-trucks, big-rigs, delivery trucks, and other commercial vehicles collide with other, smaller vehicles, such as cars and motorcycles, it often results in some of the most devastating accidents and life-altering injuries. In the vast majority of these cases, the drivers and passengers of the other vehicles are the ones who sustain the most severe injuries.
After a truck accident, injured victims or the loved ones of those wrongfully killed can seek justice and fair compensation for their damages by filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Our firm can help. At Martin, Jean & Jackson, we have over 100 years of combined legal experience and a proven track record of results, having secured more than $500 million for our clients.

Who Is Legally Responsible for a Truck Accident?
In order to bring a claim for damages, you will need to show that another person or party was legally liable for the accident. This is the person/party against whom you can seek compensation for your losses, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Therefore, establishing liability is almost always a critical component of your case.
The first step in determining who is liable for the accident is determining who/what caused the collision. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk/drugged driving
- Hours-of-service violations
- Traffic law violations
- Overloaded trucks
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Improper truck maintenance
- Failure to fix reported truck issues
- Failure to conduct background checks on drivers
- Improper alcohol/drug testing
- Improper supervision
- Negligent truck driver hiring
- Defective trucks/truck parts
- Dangerous road design/defective construction
- Poor weather conditions
- Third-party negligence (other motorists, pedestrians, etc.)
Our Oklahoma City truck accident attorneys conduct exhaustive investigations in order to determine exactly how an accident occurred and who is liable. In many cases, a trucking company can be held liable for the negligent or wrongful actions of its drivers, or the manufacturer of a defective truck part can be held legally responsible for collisions that result due to the faulty design of the part. Our firm understands how to look for evidence of liability and how to use this in order to seek maximum compensation on your behalf.
