Auto and truck collisions are among the most frequent types of personal injury and wrongful death cases in our court systems today. These crashes can have devastating consequences to the victims and their families. Our firm has extensive experience in litigating all types of claims involving motor vehicle collisions.
No matter the size of the vehicles, or the severity of the impact, we are ready to help you with your claim. That said, collisions involving commercial vehicles, such as eighteen-wheelers, tankers, and other large freight carriers, can be much more catastrophic than an ordinary car wreck. A recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that large trucks represented one out of every twelve vehicles involved in fatal crashes. A typical fully-loaded large commercial truck can weigh 80,000 pounds or more, while an average passenger automobile weighs approximately 3,000 pounds. Because of this size disparity, most collisions between large commercial vehicles and private passenger vehicles are likely to result in serious, even fatal, injuries. We understand the unique legal and practical problems associated with truck crashes and have vast experience dealing with the issues that arise in such cases. Our lawyers have extensive experience in complex litigation against commercial vehicle carriers.
Similarly, serious injuries or death can result from a one-vehicle crash. Often, passengers in the vehicle have legal rights against the car’s insurer, even if the driver is related to the victim. In addition, such wrecks occasionally result from defects in the vehicle or from the condition of the highway. For that reason, any victim of a car wreck should get proper legal advice to determine if they have legal rights to pursue justice for their injuries.
We have a rapid response team of experts at the ready who can travel anywhere in the country to inspect the defendant’s commercial vehicle and download any “black box” data and other valuable information to help document the crash.
