How Complex Are Semi Truck Accidents?


Semi truck accidents involve all the aspects of car accidents and usually involve numerous other factors unique to truck accidents. It is important to have a lawyer on your side who knows which questions to ask.

Did the trucking company maintain the vehicle properly? Was the driver rested in accordance with regulations, and was he or she free of alcohol and drug influence? Do multiple insurance policies apply, including insurance purchased by the driver, the trucking company and the owner of the freight? And is the driver’s log recoverable, accurate, useful as evidence and free of fraud?

Experience You Need ~ A Result You Want

Some of our past tractor-trailer and 18-wheeler cases illustrate our experienced and effective representation:*

  • Our client’s 5-year-old child’s brain was severely damaged in a tractor-trailer wreck. The driver was significantly “over-houred,” meaning he had driven too long with inadequate sleep. The child’s brain damage ensured he would need therapy, medications and one-on-one care for the remainder of his life. Our client’s motor vehicle case settlement more than ensured his future medical care would be paid for the rest of his life.
  • Our client’s family member was killed when a truck struck his vehicle from behind. Our thorough investigation and persuasive negotiation led to a rapid, high-value settlement payment.

Our truck accident settlement and verdict amounts include many millions of dollars in payouts. For more information on how we can provide legal help after a truck accident, contact our office for a no-charge consultation with a personal injury lawyer.
