Early Investigation Is Critical
With more than 100 combined years of experience guiding clients through personal injury cases, our attorneys have a thorough understanding of what it takes to be successful in court. With truck accidents, as with any motor vehicle accident, a quick and efficient investigation is crucial. We will immediately examine all aspects of the accident from the driver's logbooks, to the driver's past history, to the maintenance records of the truck. Our clients appreciate our attention to detail and our understanding of the legal process. We know where the evidence is, and we know how to get it.
Truck accidents can be caused by a number of different reasons, including:
- Driver fatigue
- Poorly trained drivers
- Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Inattentive drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Overloaded or unbalanced trailers
- Defective safety equipment
Often, a trucking company will use independent contractors as drivers. In these situations, it might be more difficult to properly assess liability. These accidents tend to be more complicated with complex legal issues. It is wise to retain an attorney who is sophisticated and understands the difficulties and challenges of a complex case.
