18-Wheeler wrecks are different, with more severe damage and higher insurance policies. Often, higher stakes means a hotly contested dispute. As attorneys, we’re willing to go the distance and talk to a jury about your claim. We shift risk back to the Defendant. We’re experienced in both fighting trucking companies in court, as well as advising trucking companies how to be safer and comply with government regulations. If you’ve been injured by any commercial vehicle, you should talk to a lawyer.
Tractor trailer rigs and commercial vehicles require proper maintenance, good driving skills, responsibility on who is put behind the wheel, and responsibility on making sure that driver has proper rest and the tools needed to do his job. When companies don’t follow a good safety program, they endanger the public and the driver. Real people get severely hurt or killed. We can help.
Juries are able to change company behavior, so they don’t cut corners on safety to boost profit. If you’ve been injured in a truck wreck, it’s our pleasure to help you and to force companies to correct what they’ve done wrong, making the community safer.
We represent drivers too. Drivers can be the first person injured by companies without a good safety program – and by companies without workers’ compensation. Drivers need rest, a fair wage, and the tools and training to do their job. We’ve seen companies try to pawn off responsibility for maintenance on drivers, without proper tools or training, which leads to injury. Feel free to call for legal help.
