The large size and extreme weight of commercial trucks make them a considerable threat to public safety, especially when trucking companies and drivers act negligently.

We have the experience to help you pursue a winning legal case. Trust us to get the best result for your case!
An accident with a tractor-trailer can lead to severe injuries, fatalities, and significant property damage. Depending on how the accident happened, one or more parties could potentially bear liability for the resulting damages.
Due to the size and weight of tractor-trailers compared to other passenger vehicles, accidents involving large trucks often lead to more severe injuries and damages than other accidents and have a higher chance of causing fatalities. Common types of truck crashes include: rollover accidents, tip-over accidents, rear-end accidents, jackknife, and multi-vehicle collisions.
Plaintiffs can claim compensation for their immediate and future medical bills. This compensation can cover hospital bills, emergency ambulance or airlift fees, rehabilitation costs, and any other costs for ongoing care.
A plaintiff in a truck accident case may miss work while he or she recovers from his or her injuries. The plaintiff can claim this lost income as damages in the lawsuit. If injuries prevent working in the future, the plaintiff’s attorney may call on an expert witness to explain the scope of the plaintiff’s lost future earning capacity to the court.
Property damage is common in a truck crash as smaller passenger vehicles will usually sustain severe damage. A plaintiff can claim the cost of repairing or replacing a vehicle and other personal property as damages in a truck accident lawsuit.
The physical pain, psychological distress, and emotional anguish a plaintiff experiences because of a truck collision are all components of compensation owed to the plaintiff.
