Truck accidents are almost always catastrophic for the smaller vehicles involved. Typically, trucks weigh about 25 times more than a car. Because of the size, weight and speed at which a semi travels, those fortunate enough to survive a truck accident are usually left with debilitating injuries and crippling medical bills and other expenses, which can quickly become overwhelming.

Since 1988, our experienced personal injury attorneys have helped people stand up to insurance companies in order to be treated fairly. Our personal injury attorneys have experience fighting for the rights and financial needs of truck and car accident victims.

Determining Liability In A Truck Accident Case

Tractor-trailer wrecks and 18-wheeler accidents can have many causes. It often takes a thorough investigation conducted by accident reconstructionists to definitively determine what happened. Once cause is determined, however, liability must also be assigned. We will act quickly to preserve evidence such as the black box or onboard computer to determine the speed and operating condition of the truck at the time of the crash.

To establish a solid case, we will find answers to the following important questions:

  • Did the driver act negligently?
  • Was the truck properly maintained?
  • Were any parts defective?
  • Did the trucking company provide proper training?
  • Was the road properly maintained?
