18-wheeler trucks and other heavy commercial vehicles are in the business to make money, which means getting shipments delivered fast. These trucking companies place an importance on speed over safety, which can cause motorists to become unnecessarily exposed to danger on the road. When this negligence results in an accident, trucking companies and their insurance carriers are quick to deny responsibility and will minimize the value of claims submitted by injured parties and their families.
Experienced Advocates Who Put You On Even Footing With Large Companies
While any automobile accident could potentially lead to a serious injury, collisions with 18-wheelers and heavy commercial vehicles tend to be even worse due to the massive size of the vehicles involved. When a car and an 18-wheeler collide the injuries can be disastrous and, in many cases, life changing for you and your family. In these situations you will need an attorney who can quickly evaluate the facts of your case, establish how the trucking company and driver were at fault, uncover the full scope of your damages, and efficiently communicate the facts to a jury.

According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), 18-wheelers and other large commercial vehicles are responsible for 12% of all traffic fatalities, killing nearly 5,000 people yearly. 18-wheeler accidents that result in severe injuries or death are often caused by:
