What Caused The Accident That Injured You?

Due to the size of a semitruck, a crash involving this type of vehicle can result in serious injuries and death. There are many different causes of a tractor-trailer accident. These can include:

  • Driver negligence (speeding, reckless driving, falling asleep at the wheel)
  • Drivers driving more hours than allowed by law
  • Failure to properly maintain the truck
  • Mechanical failure of the truck
  • Overloaded cargo
  • Unbalanced cargo

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable

Our firm is committed to getting to the bottom of your truck accident case to determine who is responsible for your injuries. We can potentially hold a number of parties responsible based upon the details of your individual case, including the trucking company, the manufacturer of the truck, the truck driver and/or the distributor who loaded the truck with product.

We work with you to determine adequate compensation and pursue that amount with the responsible parties and their insurance companies. Our attorneys can take your case to court and argue it in front of a judge and jury in the event the negligent party does not wish to negotiate or settle.
