Have you been injured in a truck accident?
The next time you take a long trip on the interstate, take note of the number of semi-trucks on the road. They’re everywhere: in fact, semi-trucks represent more than 4% of the vehicles on any given highway.
Most truck operators are trained to be extremely cautious, courteous, and conscientious drivers. Safety is their number one concern, and they do everything they can to get from point A to point B without any issues. However, as we’ve all experienced at one time or another, not every truck driver falls into this category. It’s happened to every single one of us: getting cut off at the last minute, or having a semi-truck drift into our lane. It’s a frightening situation.
Given the number of trucks on the road, it’s no surprise that a significant number of people suffer from injuries related to truck accidents each year. Given the size, weight, and momentum of a semi-truck, being involved in an accident with one is incredibly dangerous.
If you’ve been involved in an accident with a truck, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, as well as any pain and suffering involved.
Should I get a truck accident lawyer?
Personal injury is a special area of the law. Under the heading of personal injury cases, trucking accidents can be incredibly complex. It’s often difficult to determine liability. Who’s to blame? Is it the trucking company itself? The company that performs maintenance on the vehicle? The driver themselves? The manufacturer of the truck? There is often a considerable amount of detail to sort through. That’s why you need an experienced truck accident attorney who know the letter of the law, and who can determine whether or not you’re entitled to damages.
Many law firms require expensive, up front retainers before they’ll offer you their services.

You can trust us to fight on your behalf in court, and to get you the compensation that you deserve. Contact us today and speak with one of our knowledgeable, experienced trucking accident attorneys.
