A truck collision is quite different from an ordinary car collision. Due to the weight and force of large commercial vehicles, these collisions can cause immense physical and mental injuries. We understand the significant trauma and complex insurance factors of these personal injury cases.

Large commercial trucks and their drivers rarely suffer damages in collisions with passenger vehicles, but drivers and passengers in smaller vehicles are often seriously hurt or killed. Commercial trucks weigh up to 80,000 pounds at full capacity. Even if there was only minor contact with another vehicle, the truck can cause devastating damage.
Truck collision survivors frequently carry the effects of these serious injuries throughout their lives. We believe that justice must be served. Our firm works to hold trucking companies accountable for all damages — both economic and noneconomic.Tracking Down Vital Evidence Immediately
The truck operator and trucking company have a legal obligation under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations to inspect the truck regularly for mechanical defects. If poor maintenance or another form of negligence may have caused your collision, the trucking company’s records may be significant for your case.
Because federal regulations require the truck operator and the trucking company to retain records for only six months following a collision, your lawyer must work on your case as early as possible if you are planning to pursue full compensation.
In fact, many otherwise meritorious trucking collision cases are lost within the first week after the collision. Crucial evidence must be preserved and the trucking company must be put on notice to preserve all potential evidence under threat of future litigation.Work With Our Results-Driven Law Firm
