Our Experienced Truck Accident Attorneys
Truck accidents can cause significant damage to vehicles and catastrophic injuries, and even death. Due to their size and difficulty to handle, trucks pose a real danger to other motorists. Long-haul truckers frequently drive through the night, making falling asleep at the wheel a real possibility. Other common factors contributing to car accidents include distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence, road rage, tailgating, and failure to yield the right of way. We can help determine the cause of the accident and develop an action plan.
Who Is Liable in Truck Accidents?
There are two possibilities when pursuing legal action in the aftermath of an accident involving a tractor-trailer accident. First is the driver. But the second is the trucking company that employs the driver. There are laws dictating how tractor-trailer companies can operate. These laws exist to ensure safety on the road. We can hold a trucking company liable if they:
- Asked the driver to work longer hours than allowed by law
- Enforced unreasonable deadlines, forcing the driver to rush to complete them
- Hired an inexperienced driver or one with a checkered driving history
- Failed to maintain the safety equipment of the vehicle, parts, and computers
- Deliberately overloaded the truck
Why Truck Accident Lawsuits Are So Challenging
Truck accident lawsuits are complicated and challenging because an army of high-priced attorneys usually backs the company we target. That is why it is essential to hire a team of attorneys who have the experience and legal expertise necessary to successfully advocate on your behalf. One of the tactics they employ is to call you following the accident to offer a settlement. We do not recommend accepting it until you speak with our attorneys because it will be lower than you deserve.

Fortunately, there are numerous methods we can use to win a generous settlement on your behalf. For instance, we can obtain camera footage and identify valuable witnesses.
