Dealing with commercial truck accidents can be tricky. This is such a big industry that they often bully accident victims out of their settlement.

If you or a loved one is a victim of a commercial truck accident contacts us right now. After some brief questions, we may be able to get you a six-figure settlement.
The claim that you file will be with the company they driver was working for and not the driver. Because of this, all facts must be gathered and every detail must be accounted for. Our attorneys are skilled in handling these selfish corporations who will seek to exploit the slightest weakness against you to preserve themselves.
The first thing our attorneys will do is visit the scene of the accident to gather all existing data, and fill in any gaps or details you may have missed. This part is the most important because the trucking company’s insurance company will conduct their own investigation and seek to minimize the evidence to support their claim. Once we visit the scene we will look for the most common causes of trucking accidents. Over the years we have seen the following factors cause major accidents:
- Driver Fatigue
- Unreasonable Schedule
- Improperly Loaded Trucks
- Defective Hardware
- Lack of Training
- Intoxication or Drugs
- Weather Conditions
- Damaged Roads
- Speeding and Reckless Endangerment
When dealing with factors like driver fatigue, unreasonable scheduling, or lack of training, this information is crucial in determining fault in the accident. Our experienced attorneys will look at driving logs, hiring practices, maintenance records, and experience to determine if the company is at fault for pushing the driver too hard, or improperly training their employee. In situations of improperly loaded trucks, defective equipment, or a poorly maintained truck, our attorneys will show the company’s negligence and demonstrate exactly how they are to blame for the pain and suffering that was caused. Especially if the weather conditions were terrible. Truck drivers are held to a higher standard as well as their vehicles. In addition, they must be properly trained to handle these types of conditions and their vehicles should be able to perform.
During our lawyer’s investigation, any evidence we find will go into building your claim for court. It is very important that you do not say anything or agree to anything at the scene without talking to an attorney first. Anything you say can and will be documented and used against you should you pursue legal action. Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of federal and state trucking regulations, that way we can best craft the case of your victimization, and get you the monetary reward that you deserve.
If you were involved in an accident with a truck, or you lost a loved one to a trucking accident then please contact us. We may be able to win you a huge settlement. We know this will not fix everything or bring back a loved one, but at least you get a small peace of mind in such a tragic situation.
