Truck Accidents

Experienced Truck Accident Attorney
 

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a truck accident that wasn’t your fault, you may have a legal claim. Truck drivers have an obligation to operate their large vehicles as safely and carefully as possible. When they don’t, the results can be disastrous.

To obtain a successful resolution in a truck case, we may pursue claims against any party who might be responsible for causing your injuries, including:
 

  • The truck driver

  • Employer of the driver

  • Owner of the truck

  • Leasing company

  • Owner of the truck trailer

  • Manufacturer of the truck

  • Truck maintenance company
     

In each truck case, our goal is to recover every dollar that our clients are entitled to receive. You have the right as an injured person to obtain all damages including:
 

  • Medical bills - This includes all past and future care such as ambulance, emergency room, hospital care, surgery, physical therapy, assistive medical devices, prescription medications.

  • Wages - Do your injuries prevent you from working following a truck crash? If you are not capable of returning to your profession due to restrictions imposed by your injuries, you may recover future lost wages for the rest of your working life.

  • Pain & Suffering - You may be able to get financial compensation for pain that you endured following an accident as well as the pain that you may endure for the remainder of your life.
     

You Shouldn’t Fight Without A Lawyer In Your Corner
 

Trucking companies have insurance companies and lawyers that will try to avoid paying you what your claim is worth. After going through the wreck, you don’t need the added stress of going after them alone. We are ready to fight for you and will ensure that truck drivers, trucking companies, shipping companies, and other entities live up to their legal responsibilities. Trust our dedicated personal injury legal team.
