Personalized representation for all types of truck accidents
Large trucks are sophisticated pieces of machinery that require enhanced skill and training to be properly maintained and operated. Our leading truck accident attorneys have extensive experience representing victims involved in accidents involving all types of trucks including:
Large trucks must be routinely inspected and serviced to ensure that they are safe for road operations. In addition, there are strict regulations that dictate what type of materials may be transported and how trucks must be loaded. Improper loading techniques may cause sudden shifts in weight and materials leading to serious accidents. Accidents involving commercial trucks add another layer to the legal process, and often require a high level of legal knowledge and experience. Large companies have teams of investigators and insurance representatives protecting their best interests and it is important to secure the services of a skilled attorney to protect your own rights.
Truck accidents often lead to serious and debilitating injuries
Due to their sheer size and weight, truck accidents often cause severe injuries or death for drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Some of the most common injuries associated with truck accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
These types of injuries often require extensive medical treatment and may impact your ability to work for months or even years. You may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
