Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
The firm represents people injured in accidents with large trucks and commercial vehicles such as:
- Semi trucks
- Cement trucks
- Garbage trucks
- Delivery trucks
- Construction vehicles
The size and weight of semi trucks makes them difficult to stop. Too often, a car accident occurs ahead of a large truck, causing the traffic to slow or stop. Unable to stop in time, the truck collides with the vehicles in front of it, injuring drivers and passengers.
Driver fatigue, vehicle defects, safety violations, and failure to perform maintenance and safety inspections are common reasons for trucking accidents. The firm can investigate the cause of the accident and hold the negligent parties accountable. You will need an experienced attorney to fight the trucking company's insurance carrier and its lawyers on your behalf.
You may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering. In wrongful death cases, you may also seek compensation for funeral expenses. The firm often consults with experts such as medical specialists, life-care planners, orthopedic specialists and neuropsychologists in these cases. Experts in accident reconstruction can also provide critical support for the case.
