A Commercial Trucking Accident Can involve Multiple Sources of Liability 

The trucking industry is subject to comprehensive federal and state regulations to make commercial trucking as safe as possible, given the inherently dangerous nature of having large, powerful vehicles on the road with much smaller vehicles. These regulations involve truck drivers, the companies they work for, maintenance personnel, cargo loaders, training officers, truck manufacturers, and other parties. When there is a trucking accident, we are dealing with much more than the driver.

Holding Negligent Parties Responsible after a Trucking Accident

Successfully obtaining accountability and recovering full damages on behalf of our clients involves competent legal representation, trusted expert testimony, and perseverance:


The first step in any case is meeting with you, learning about what happened, and evaluating the legal options for your case.


Next, we gather all records and evidence on the trucking accident, such as accident reports, photos, witness statements, medical records, the truck driver’s logbook, maintenance records, GPS data, electronic logging device data (a trucking equivalent to an airplane’s black box), etc.


Using the evidence gathered, accident reconstruction, and the help of experts in the various fields involved in each specific case, we can determine what caused your injuries.


Once the cause of the accident is established by evidence, we identify the party or parties liable for that accident.


Subsequent to determining liability is proving that negligence caused the trucking accident and the injuries or fatalities. Negligence can be recklessness (such as “road rage” or DUI), violation of trucking laws and regulations, defective parts, or any other duty of care for ensuring the safe operation of the truck and those around it.


Our attorneys accurately calculate all damages suffered. In cases of gross and severe negligence, seeking punitive damages that may be applicable to prevent the same harmful acts from occurring in the future.
