Skilled Help For Those Injured In Truck Accidents

Trucking 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 the people in a car, light truck or SUV would suffer such severe injuries.

Common injuries caused in trucking accidents include:

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

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

Complex Investigations And A Sense Of Urgency

Building a strong case against a trucking company generally calls for a very thorough investigation. My decades of experience allow me to conduct highly effective investigations that can act as the foundation of a very strong case.

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