Personal Injury Lawyers – Truck Accident Attorneys
If you were involved in an accident with a semi truck, big-rig or other commercial vehicle, you are up against more than the insurance company. The insurance company for the trucking company has a team of investigators and highly paid defense attorneys who will immediately work to limit the liability of the truck company. Getting compensation for the injuries and damages you suffered requires experience and knowledge of commercial trucking litigation. The truck accident lawyers in our law firm have many years of experience representing clients who have suffered injuries and damages due to a collision with a big-rig.
Our skilled, tenacious injury accident attorneys stand up against trucking companies and insurance companies, obtaining compensation for injuries and damages on behalf of our clients. When you or a loved one is involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer, the consequences are usually severe as the occupants in the car struck by the semi are usually the ones injured, crippled or killed while the truck driver walks away unharmed. The size and weight of the large trucks pose great risk to other vehicles on the road. This is why there are federal and state regulations designed to help ensure the safety of vehicles on the road. However, many times truck drivers and the trucking companies violate the regulations and endanger lives.
It is vitally important to retain a lawyer who specializes in truck accidents. There are different issues and considerations when investigating and pursing a truck accident claim. These considerations include:
Obtaining and evaluating logbooks and global positioning (GPS) data.
Analyzing the black box or engine control module to determine the driver’s action immediately preceding the accident.
Detailed site inspection, including measurements of skid marks, impact points and roadway dimensions (often an engineering expert or accident reconstruction expert is utilized).
Pre-trip inspection reports and regulation compliance.
The accident lawyers in our law firm have the resources of a proficient team of investigators to thoroughly investigate the truck collision and determine the parties responsible. Our attorneys are aggressive and knowledgeable about the trucking industry and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act that governs trucking companies, their drivers, and trucking procedures. It is important to investigate your truck accident immediately to question witnesses and preserve evidence.
Our truck accident attorneys will work on your behalf to maximize the compensation due you.
