Skilled Help For Those Injured In Truck Accidents

Truck accidents often cause catastrophic injuries. A fully loaded semi can weigh 80,000 pounds, while the average car weighs around 4,000 pounds. It is easy to see with such a weight discrepancy why people in a car, light truck or SUV would suffer such severe injuries in an accident with a semi.

Common injuries in truck accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia, partial paralysis)
  • Back injuries
  • Amputations
  • Bone fractures
  • Crush injuries

With such serious injuries, recovery can take a long time and require extensive medical care. The costs of such care are often substantial. Because insurance companies are well aware of how expensive it can be to cover someone's medical expenses after a truck accident, they use all of their resources to fight these cases. It takes a skilled and experienced attorney to overcome the level of opposition insurance companies present in truck accident cases.

Complex Investigations And A Sense Of Urgency

Building a strong case against a trucking company generally calls for a thorough investigation. Our decades of experience at Evans Law allow us to conduct highly effective investigations that can act as the foundation of a strong case.

One key to a successful investigation is beginning as soon as possible. Trucking companies are required to keep records for only six months. After that, they can be destroyed. Those records may include past driving infractions, poor safety records and other issues that can clearly and persuasively show a trucking company's negligence.
