Commercial Vehicle, Truck And Tractor-Trailer Accidents Can Result In Serious, Even Life-Threatening Injuries
All auto accidents are bad, but trucking accidents and tractor-trailer accidents are particularly devastating because of the size and speed of an 18-wheeler. If you have been in a tractor-trailer accident, you need a lawyer with experience and skill to mount your personal injury claim.

What Are Some Of The Causes Of Tractor-Trailer Accidents?
Tractor-trailer accidents have a few common causes, including:
- The size of the trucks
- The high speeds at which trucks travel
- Negligent driving, including driving when fatigued
- Driving while intoxicated
We Are On Your Side ∙ Don’t Fight This Battle Alone
As you can see, some of the above causes are linked directly to the operator of the truck or the trucking company. This is important to understand since it will have significant bearing on the outcome of your case. The trucking company has a vested interested in protecting itself from injury claims and will do all it can to deflect responsibility from itself and its drivers. That is why it’s important to put an experienced lawyer on your side to hold the trucking company and driver accountable.
There is an army against you after a tractor-trailer accident. The insurance companies, the driver and the owner of the trucking business all want to find away to deny your claim or establish that you were the one at fault.
We have been fighting against trucking companies and their insurers long enough to know how to beat them.
Preparation Is Essential To Building A Successful Case
We win cases by preparing diligently right from the start. Most people just want to accept a quick, easy settlement and avoid going to trial. We understand this and agree that it’s often in your interest to pursue a settlement. However, the irony is that when trucking companies and their insurers know we’re prepared to go all the way with a case, they are more likely to make a good settlement offer early, so you get the money you need, quickly and efficiently.
