The Best Way To Help Your Claim Is To Contact Us As Soon As Possible
If you have been seriously injured in a large truck accident — or any automobile accident, for that matter — the most important thing you can do is act quickly. When you hire us, we take immediate action to examine the scene of the accident, interview witnesses and preserve any evidence for trial. We will also request to see logbooks, which truck drivers are required to keep for a limited period of time. If you wait too long to contact us, this critical evidence may no longer be available.
With more than 70 years of combined legal experience in personal injury cases, we can help you following a wide range of trucking accidents, including those attributable to such negligent acts as:
- Driver fatigue, including violations of federal regulations that govern how long a trucker can remain behind the wheel
- Driving while intoxicated or impaired by drugs
- Loading violations or general disregard of complex federal regulations
It is important to understand that in motor vehicle accidents involving large commercial trucks, different rules apply. For example, in addition to the driver, other parties can be liable for your injury, including the government agencies that maintain the roads and the corporation for which the trucker was hauling goods, among others.
Often, corporate defendants will spend significant money to hire batteries of lawyers to minimize your claim. Rest assured, however, we will leave no stone unturned when investigating and litigating your large truck accident claim.
