Truck Accidents

Hurt in a truck accident? Whether it was by a semi-truck, big rig, tractor-trailer or an 18-wheeler, I will fight your case for you, no matter how lengthy or complicated. Large trucks are dangerous. They need more time to come to a complete stop, have large blind spots on both sides, and carry oversized and overweight cargo. They also often carry loads that fall off or scatter debris in the road. They are more likely than smaller vehicles to flip or roll. Being on the other end of a truck-involved accident can be a very scary thing. Having to deal with tactical insurance companies and receiving fair compensation literally adds insult to injury.

I know the tactics insurance companies and their lawyers use to try to deny or delay compensation for your injuries. I settle many cases before trial, saving you time, worry and money. I am familiar with federal motor carrier laws and can interpret driver and maintenance logs to identify instances where mistakes or violations may have caused your injury. I also know that trucking companies train their drivers on what to do and say after an accident to avoid being held responsible. Let me handle your truck accident personal injury case, ease your burden, and level the playing field.
