Our personal injury lawyers can leave on short notice to begin work on your tractor-trailer accident case. A trucking crash involves many complex factors. The tractor and trailer may have different owners. The cargo may have another owner. Tractor-trailer drivers and their companies are responsible for safety and maintenance of the big rig and for following federal regulatory requirements.

There is a lot of evidence that must be gathered as soon as possible after a truck accident. Photographs must be taken of the scene, and witnesses must be interviewed. Skid marks and debris need to be analyzed by an accident reconstructionist. The “black box” of the truck, which will contain information as to speed, driving hours and other information, must be preserved. Our law firm is known for prompt truck accident investigation and thorough trial preparation.

We have an MD on retainer to consult with us on accident-related medical issues.

Your biggest concern after a tractor-trailer accident is your recovery from accident injuries. We share that concern. That is why we have a medical doctor on retainer who can follow your medical treatment and work with your doctors to determine the full extent of your injuries. In most semi-truck accidents, injuries are serious and may require care for years to come. We want you to have the compensation you need to get through the tough times.
