You Need A Trial Lawyer After A Truck Accident

We Are On Your Side In The Fight For Compensation
What makes a truck accident different from other vehicle accidents? Commercial trucks are covered by commercial insurance policies with expensive premiums. The trucking company and insurance company will fight hard to keep costs down by denying fault for the accident. They do not want to pay out compensation to accident victims.
We will battle the trucking company for you to ensure that you receive the compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages and benefits, and pain and suffering. In wrongful death cases, we will also seek damages for funeral and burial expenses, the future income of the deceased and the personal loss of a loved one.
A few examples of our success in truck accident cases include:
- $1 million settlement — Truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and rear ended a car driven by a 50-year-old male, killing him instantly.
- $1.8 million settlement — Jury verdict: Young mother was in a car accident with a dump truck. Liability was disputed. The defense claimed that the plaintiff ran the stop sign and failed to yield to the truck.
- $500,000 jury verdict — Low-speed rear-end collision truck accident. Plaintiff suffered injury to his spine, and doctors testified he needed disk fusion. $5,000 in medical bills considered by the jury. Proximate cause disputed.
