Our attorneys will communicate, on your behalf, with your insurance company and the other parties involved to ensure you are treated fairly and receive the full and fair compensation you are owed.

Commercial Vehicles and Semi Accidents

Truck Accidents

Drivers of commercial vehicles and semi trucks are normally required to be specifically trained and licensed to safely operate the commercial vehicles they drive but such training and license requirements cannot always prevent errors and mistakes that can lead to very serious accidents. Commercial drivers are sometimes pressured to meet strict deadlines, commonly required to haul dangerous cargo or drive themselves to the point of exhaustion. The sheer size and speed of the vehicles they are driving means that any accident they are involved in can cause significant injuries and devastating damages.

We work frequently with experts in this field to examine the truck, history of the driver, driving records of the company and any data recorded on the truck’s “black box”. If you have been injured in an accident involving a truck or other commercial vehicle, call us to discuss the situation. You can rely upon us to quickly and thoroughly investigate the accident and to aggressively pursue your claim for any damages and injuries you have suffered.
