Experienced Counsel For Serious Commercial Vehicle And Truck Crashes
Accidents involving semi trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles often result in severe injuries given the size of the vehicles as well as the speed and force of the collisions. Victims who are injured often need lifelong, expensive medical care for catastrophic spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries.

Who Is Liable For Damages After A Truck Accident?
Liability in truck accident cases can lie with individual drivers or the companies that own the vehicles. In some cases, there is more than one liable party. You can rely on us to sort through these issues and mount an aggressive legal strategy for maximizing your compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, lost earnings, property damage, and other damages.
Time Is Ticking Away (And So Is Your Ability To File A Claim)
In an ideal world, everyone would care more about helping those they injure than protecting themselves from liability. Unfortunately, this is not the world we live in. Some drivers, trucking companies and insurance carriers intentionally destroy or lose evidence, take evasive measures or do other things that can harm your case, including:
- Deleting black box information
- Losing or modifying driver logbooks
- Removing cargo from overweight trucks
- Delaying sharing evidence until the time to file has passed
- Claiming the company won’t pay unless you give a recorded statement, even if you are still in the hospital
- Hiring private investigators to follow you, secretly videotape you or find evidence on your social media sites that they can use against you
Even when all parties act in good faith, evidence can still get lost or destroyed in personal injury cases. The simple fact that highways need to be cleared means that you cannot preserve the scene until the trial and crucial pieces of evidence can get lost when damaged vehicles are transported to alternative locations. Rain can even wash away evidence.
