A collision with a truck can result in catastrophic injuries requiring months and even years of recovery. Even cars equipped with air bags are no match for the energy and force in an 18-wheeler crash. Too often, the truck driver or the trucking company are to blame for the serious injury or death. Typically, the truck driver and the trucking company have substantial insurance policies in place to cover them when they cause an accident.

Truck Accident Injuries: Often as Bad as It Gets
When trucks and passenger cars collide, the tremendous impact often causes major injury. Victims may be trapped or crushed, requiring powerful machines to extract them from the wreckage. These accidents often result in severe burn injury, face and eye injuries, lost limbs or partial amputation, paralysis, internal organ damage, head, neck and back injuries, and broken legs. We can seek full compensation to cover surgery and hospitalization, as well as future medical care. Victims often suffer long-term or permanent disabilities requiring years or a lifetime of treatment. If injuries prevent the person from returning to work, we also seek damages for lost wages and future earnings.
Aggressive and Determined Focus on Proving Your Case
Our personal injury lawyers promptly and actively investigate the circumstances of truck accidents to determine if the driver's negligent behavior or the trucking company's negligent maintenance of the truck contributed to the crash:
- Driver fatigue: Was the driver on the road longer than the law allows?
- Logbooks: Were the logbooks up to date and accurate?
- Drug abuse: Was the driver under the influence of amphetamines or other illegal drugs or stimulants?
- Drunk driving: Was the driver intoxicated?
- Defective truck equipment: Were the brakes and tires roadworthy?
- Overloaded trucks: Was the load properly secured and balanced?
Truck accidents often involve multiple vehicles. We make sure that clients receive their fair share of the insurance policy limits, protect your rights and seek the maximum compensation for you or your loved one. Truck accident lawyers at our firm can successfully handle all types of truck accidents, including UPS trucks, Federal Express (FedEx) trucks, cement trucks, 18-wheelers, courier driver accidents and dump trucks.
