Serious Trucking Accidents
The odds are that in an accident between a semi tractor-trailer and a passenger car, the occupants of the car will come out the losers. The sheer size of commercial trucks makes commercial truck wrecks more serious than other collisions. Truck accident claims are complicated by the number of federal trucking regulations truck drivers and trucking companies must adhere to when conducting business in the trucking industry.
When a car and an 18 wheeler collide, the driver of the car and his or her passengers usually sustain serious injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injury resulting from blunt force trauma, such as going through the windshield
- Spinal cord injury, including a herniated disc, quadriplegia or paraplegia
- Back and neck injuries
Our lawyers understand the regulations, the multiple parties involved, and the causes ranging from driver fatigue and drunk or reckless driving, to tire or brake failure and poor maintenance. We will fight hard to obtain favorable results for you.
We provide experienced case preparation, and negotiate with insurance companies to obtain the maximum compensation and best resolution possible in your case.
