This philosophy guides how we work with clients and, we believe, is the reason our firm has grown substantially in the past 35 years.

Truck Accidents.

By definition, an accident involving a truck is a serious event. A multi-wheeled hulk of steel loaded with tons of freight constitutes a powerful weapon—one that can annihilate or seriously injury its own driver, passengers and anyone in its path.

Trucking accidents are different than other vehicle accidents because of the laws that govern the trucking industry. For instance, federal regulations require trucking firms to maintain logbooks in which the driver records important information, but only for a limited time. The truck driver’s log may be destroyed shortly after the accident if your attorney does not obtain a court order to retain this evidence. Likewise, most long-haul trucks contain a “black box” that records operating information like speed, duration, and other important data.

This data must be seized soon after an accident before it can be erased or recorded over.

Despite industry and government efforts, the number of truck accidents is uncomfortably high.

Of the 41,059 people killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2007, 12% (4,808) died in crashes that involved a large truck. Another 101,000 people were injured in crashes involving large trucks. Only about 17% of those killed and 22% of those injured in large truck crashes were occupants of large trucks. So that means that many thousands in other vehicles were injured by truck accidents.

If you were injured in a trucking accident, you need to talk to an attorney familiar with the federal and state laws that govern trucks and trucker drivers. The types of truck accidents involve many different scenarios. Our firm has investigated, litigated and settled cases that involved:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Load distribution
  • Unsafe company practices
  • Tractor and trailer safety compliance
  • Driver qualifications
  • Defective vehicle design
  • Inadequate vehicle maintenance
  • Unsafe driving for conditions
  • Product recall
  • Dangerous cargo
  • Drunk driving

When you are involved in a truck accident, you need an attorney who is up to speed on transportation law. Our firm has lawyers familiar with Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) laws governing driver qualification standards, and truck and trailer safety compliance, as well as National Highway Traffic Safety Commission (NHTSC) automobile and truck defective product recalls. If you were injured in an accident involving a truck, we urge you to contact our firm. We will help you determine if you have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim. When you call our firm, your case will undergo a thorough analysis by our investigators and attorneys. We will discuss the case in our first meeting at no cost or obligation on your part.

It is important to discover all potential sources of recovery. Over-the-road trucks must carry multiple levels of insurance coverage, depending on the nature of the materials in the truck. A third party may supply pallets and shipping supplies that may lead to potential liability in shifting load accidents. Further, ownership of the truck may not be with the hauling company. Multiple leasing arrangements can further confuse someone trying to file a claim. The hauler and the leasing companies may spend months or years arguing which insurance company is responsible for compensating you. You need a seasoned professional to represent you in this potentially tedious and confusing process. We consider it our job to untangle this complicated situation and remove as much of the stress as possible for you.
