Truck accidents are typically more destructive than other types of auto accidents and car accidents; they are also more complicated, legally. Often the cab of a semi truck is owned and insured by one company and the trailer by another. The driver may own or rent the tractor, or be an employee of a carrier. With the divided ownership, there may also be divided liability.
Our truck accident attorneys will thoroughly investigate your case and determine the cause of the accident. We will track down all parties who may be liable for the accident, to ensure that your rights are fully protected.
Did a sudden shift in an improperly secured load cause the 18 wheeler accident? Perhaps the warehouse that loaded the truck bears responsibility. Was it a mechanical failure? Did the garage that maintained the truck do its job? Were faulty parts installed?
We will leave no question unanswered and no stone unturned in our quest to recover a fair settlement or judgment for you. We routinely work with trucking experts to stay updated on industry standards.
