Accidents involving big rigs, tractor-trailers and semitrucks can cause devastating injuries. If you or a family member has suffered injuries in such an accident, you will be involved in a claim against an owner-operator or a corporate freight company. These claims raise unique issues and require the assistance of counsel.

We offer free initial consultations, and only collect an attorney fee if we are successful in recovering damages for you through a settlement or jury verdict.
Handling All Types Of Truck Accidents
Our law firm handles commercial trucking accident claims involving a wide variety of vehicles:
- Big rigs
- Tanker trucks
- Construction vehicles
- Maintenance or installation vans
- Utility trucks
- Delivery or parcel express trucks
- Service vehicles from fast food delivery cars to repair trucks
It’s important to involve an attorney as soon as possible after a truck accident. Proof of liability against the defendant might depend on our ability to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and investigate the driver’s employment and training record.
How We Can Help
The severe injuries characteristic of semitruck accidents will often result in death or permanent disability. Unlike car accident litigation, where a driver might carry only $50,000 or $100,000 in liability coverage, commercial vehicles are typically insured at a minimum of $1 million, so your lawyer needs to be ready to prove the full extent of your injuries as well as future medical and financial needs.
