Truck Accident Law


As Newton observed, objects in motion tend to stay in motion. If the object in motion is an 80,000-pound semi traveling at highway speed, you don’t want to get in its way. Whether a large truck hits a 4,000-pound car or an 8,000-pound SUV, the result is often serious injury or wrongful death for the occupants of the smaller vehicle.

As truck accident attorneys, we have successfully represented numerous clients injured in 18-wheeler wrecks, as well as the family members of those who died in truck accidents.

We understand state and federal trucking regulations, including standards set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). If our investigation reveals a truck or trucking company was out of compliance with these regulations at the time of the accident, we will press for the imposition of punitive damages in addition to compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and property damage.

Whether your truck accident was caused by driver fatigue, improper truck maintenance, improper loading, or any other reason, we will find out and pursue full compensation for your injuries and other damages.
