Truck Accident Attorneys
Our attorneys represent people seriously injured or killed in Trucking, 18 Wheeler and Tractor Trailer accidents.
If you or someone you know has been seriously injured in a truck accident you will need to consult with a lawyer. An attorney will be familiar with the specific laws that govern the trucking industry. Overloaded freight, driver fatigue and speed may be factors in a truck accident, an attorney who knows the regulations and the industry can prove a driver was at fault.
State and Federal law regulates how trucks are maintained and drivers must fill out a vehicle inspection reports.These reports can be crucial evidence that can help experienced counsel reconstruct the accident by establishing the condition of the truck. A lawyer will also conduct an immediate investigation into the history of the driver and the service history of the truck involved.
The attorneys in our national network include some of the finest trial lawyers in the country whose goal is to pursue justice and maximize the recovery for your loss. Truck Accident cases (as are most personal injury claims in the United States) are handled on a contingent fee basis. The attorneys fee is deducted from the settlement at the conclusion of your case, so the client pays no fee unless the case is successful.
Truck accident cases should be handled by an attorney familiar with the most serious injury cases. The injuries sustained by an ordinary motorist fortunate enough to survive a collision with a truck are usually severe and require significant medical testimony.
Types of Money Damage Claims Against the Operator of a Truck
Truck accidents that involve serious injury or death are based on the allegations of negligence by the driver. The trucking company, the trailer and possibly other parties may have significant assets and insurance coverage which they will fight hard to protect.
In order to get compensation an attorney will need to show the truck driver failed to use due care in the operation of the truck or vehicle. Typically, in cases where serious injury has resulted, a plaintiff will have claims for pain and suffering, negligent and/or intentional infliction of emotional distress; and loss of consortium.

Whenever you believe you have a claim against someone in an truck accident, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible in order to protect you right to sue. In general, you have a limited number of time from the date of the accident to file a complaint against the other party (ies) involved. Nevertheless, you should always seek advice at the earliest stage possible. If you do not, it may seriously jeopardize your case: your attorney needs to act quickly and preserve the evidence: memories fade, witnesses disappear, vital records and reports are lost without quick action.
