Holding Commercial Trucking Companies Liable
An accident involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck often leads to catastrophic injury or wrongful death. While the cause of the accident may seem clear, getting compensation from a trucking company is not an easy process. Commercial trucking companies will often try to deny fault for accidents to keep their insurance premiums low.
Do not accept a settlement without speaking to an attorney. It is very unlikely that the trucking company’s insurance carrier will offer you adequate compensation for your past and future damages. With our help, however, you will have an experienced attorney protecting your interests.
Victims of truck accidents may suffer very serious injuries such as burns, amputations, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. These types of injuries often result in scarring, disfigurement and disability. In the worst cases, they lead to wrongful death.
Trucking accidents have numerous causes, but a few of the most common include:
- Driver fatigue
- Improperly secured cargo
- Defective brakes or tires
- Failure to maintain safe vehicles
- Drunk or distracted driving
We will investigate your accident to determine who is responsible. When appropriate, accident reconstruction experts help us build strong cases for compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. If you have lost a family member to wrongful death, you may also be able to collect compensation for funeral expenses and the personal loss of a loved one.
