Our Team Will Seek the Justice You Deserve

When highway trucks and passenger vehicles are involved in collisions, the results may involve catastrophic injury, permanent disability, disfigurement, traumatic brain injury, or even death. You need an experienced team of personal injury attorneys on your side who will agressively seek the justice you deserve.

We Understand the Complexities of Trucking Accidents

After a trucking accident, the insurer of the truck driver and/or trucking company typically sends a claims adjuster to the wreck site. The job of these claims investigators is to find evidence favorable to their company’s defense—not to the injured victim. Evidence crucial to the outcome of a case, such as on-board computers, satellite data, "black box" data generated by engine control modules, event data recorders, and truck driver logs, are sometimes ignored, purged, or lost if the attorney representing the victim is not sufficiently knowledgeable or aggressive to act to preserve it.

Our personal injury attorneys know what elements to preserve following a wreck in order to ensure that justice is served. In some cases, a court order or injunction may be required to maintain and access key evidence, including the truck, equipment, or components involved in the accident.

We Bring Experts Together

Trucking accident cases usually require the input of engineers, accident reconstructionists, and authorities in conspicuity, medicine, transportation safety, and other realms. To optimize your legal outcome, your attorney must be able to successfully select and bring together experts from multiple disciplines critical to the investigation, analysis, preparation, and trial of truck collision cases.

In addition to the potential for increased damage, there are other important differences between interstate trucking accidents and other motor vehicle accident cases. For instance, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations govern interstate trucking operations. Many lawyers lack adequate familiarity with the unique laws, science and technology, industry practices, driver training protocol, insurance coverage issues, and discovery processes involved in such cases. Overlooking these special considerations can significantly impact your legal rights, so it’s essential to make a careful and informed choice of legal representation for your trucking accident case.
