Taking On Trucking Companies Since 1979
The size of tractor-trailers, semi trucks, 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks make them especially hazardous in a crash. After a serious accident involving a large truck, you will almost certainly have painful and expensive injuries.

Why Hire A Truck Accident Lawyer?
Trucking companies have their own legal teams that they contact immediately after a crash. They do everything they can to place fault on you, even if the fault lies with them. Truck accidents also usually have issues of third-party liability. This means that more than one party and not just the truck driver could have contributed fault to the accident. Common sources of third-party liability include the manufacturer, the maintenance company or the cargo loaders.
