Trucks: Catastrophic Collisions
A Broken Promise On the Road
In exchange for having their giant, heavy vehicles share the road with the rest of us, trucking companies are supposed to hire the best and most experienced drivers who follow the best and safest possible driving practices. When a trucker’s negligence causes a crash, it generally causes catastrophic injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury because of a truck driver or trucking company’s negligence, you may have the right to compensation.
Our lawyers are ready to help you get the compensation you need to cover medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages related to the trucking accident. A knowledgeable truck injury lawyer will be your best defense against trucking firms and their insurance companies who try to avoid their responsibilities.

What Caused The Trucking Accident?
When handling a trucking accident case, we carefully investigate and review all evidence. Does the evidence show that the driver was speeding or going way too fast for conditions? Does the driver’s log book indicate an attempt to cover up driver fatigue by falsifying the amount of time spent on the road? Did the trucking company fail to do adequate drug testing, even though the driver was a chronic drug user? The answers to these questions can be frightening, but they help us prove that the driver was negligent and should be held accountable. A capable truck accident attorney will uncover the truth and get victims what they deserve.
