Due to their large size and weight, commercial motor vehicles can be a very threatening presence to passenger vehicles and pedestrians. When an accident occurs, it usually leads to severe and even catastrophic injuries. In fact, in 90% of all truck accidents, the driver of a smaller vehicle is killed.

The Necessity of Legal Representation
Each year, negligent truck drivers are responsible for countless injuries and deaths. Truck drivers and trucking companies are held to strict state and federal laws; as such, they may face severe legal penalties if someone is injured or dies in an accident. Unfortunately, in most cases, truck collisions are caused by careless behaviors and preventable circumstances.
Truck accidents are often caused by:
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Driving while intoxicated
- Improperly loaded cargo
When you schedule a consultation with our firm, we can evaluate the circumstances of your case and help you pinpoint the negligent party. While the driver is usually responsible for the accident, a claim can also be filed against: the trucking company, the leasing company, the truck manufacturer, or even the truck’s mechanic.
Victims who survive an accident often sustain significant injuries that require excessive medical treatments and even long-term professional care. Many victims have to file personal injury claims just so they can be awarded damages that can pay for their medical bills and lost wages.
Legal representation is essential if you’re interested in pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. Our trucking accident lawyers are knowledgeable about the laws that govern trucking companies and can protect you from questionable insurance company practices. Unfortunately, the rival insurance company may try to offer you a subpar settlement. Don’t accidentally waive your rights to maximum damages before talking to an attorney.
