Fighting For Our Injured Clients

Due to the size and speed of trucks, they are likely to cause severe accidents. Whether a driver was speeding, lost control or simply lost focus on the road, any collision between a truck and a smaller vehicle can destroy the smaller vehicle. The reasons behind these wrecks can be wide-ranging, including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Equipment failure
  • Tire blowouts
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
  • Distracted driving, including texting, eating or personal grooming

No matter the cause, a commercial truck accident can be catastrophic. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a truck collision, it is crucial that you schedule a consultation with a skilled lawyer.
