The Value of Having a Premier Firm on Your Side
Truck accident cases are often highly complex, requiring immediate investigation by a team of lawyers and independent experts in order to gather the evidence necessary to obtain a fair insurance settlement or to prevail in personal injury or wrongful death litigation.
Preservation of evidence is our key priority in investigating the cause of any truck accident. Our success over the past 25 years has given us the resources to send out an experienced investigative team to take photos and measurements of the scene which may later be used to contradict the trucking company’s version of events and to firmly establish legal liability for the harm you have suffered.
We will examine the truck driver’s logbook in order to uncover evidence of over-hours driving and will take action to protect physical evidence of any truck design defects or negligent maintenance which may have played a part in the accident. We confirm these findings through a comparison with data from the truck’s “black box” computer.
Another benefit of hiring our Law Firm to represent you in a truck accident case is that our experienced attorneys are skilled in the accumulation and/or development of any health care or disability benefits to which you may be entitled. This enables us to help you obtain the medical care and financial support you deserve quickly.

The Causes of Truck Accidents
Approximately 90 percent of all commercial trucking accidents are caused by the truck’s inability to stop in time. Other common factors in truck accidents include:
Driver fatigue caused by over hours driving
Fog, improperly marked construction zones or other dangerous road conditions
Truck driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs
