Given the enormous size of these vehicles, accidents involving semitrailers are almost always devastating. Trucks carrying heavy loads can collide with other drivers or fail to look for other cars when changing lanes. The truck driver may walk away without a scratch while the drivers of other vehicles are left with life-altering injuries, including:

  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Multiple bone breaks or fractures
  • Internal bleedings

In the worst situations, the driver of the other vehicle is killed, leaving loved ones to mourn a death that should have been prevented by greater care and by the driver abiding by safety guidelines.

Trucking companies know how much is on the line in such cases, and will move quickly to cover evidence and do everything possible to avoid liability. Our attorneys are knowledgeable of these tactics and will fight aggressively on your behalf to achieve justice for your loved one.

Our truck accident lawyers work with highly skilled forensic experts to recreate the scene of the accident. We will also act quickly to put together the evidence and logbooks to show wrongdoing on the part of the driver and trucking company.
