Types of Truck Accidents
Any type of vehicle can be involved in a truck accident and unfortunately the smaller the vehicle the more substantial the damage. Many of these accidents even result in a fatality of one or more people. When there is a fatality, it is devastating for the family as they have to face life without their loved one.

Why Do I Need an Attorney?
Our law firm is experienced in obtaining justice and compensation for victims of catastrophic injuries in trucking accidents. The nature of these cases typically involve more serious injuries because of the size, weight, and speed of these tractor trucks and trailers.
There are many causes of these accidents such as freeway mishaps, multi-car collisions, jackknife accidents, intersection crashes, vehicle cutoff, overturned trucks and trailer malfunction. It is up to an experienced attorney to investigate immediately these cases as trucking firms will lose or do away with important information such as driver log records, vehicle maintenance records, and data obtained in the computer “black box” that is maintained in the truck. Our firm has the resources to have an experienced investigator on the scene immediately to preserve evidence that will ultimately affect your rights.
Many times drivers are inattentive because they have driven too long and are not from this country and do not obey the rules of the road. Trucking cases are extremely difficult because trucking firms are sophisticated and fight them very strongly. It is necessary that you obtain experienced legal counsel who has the resources and the aggressiveness to fight these firms. Our office provides such resources.
