Wrongful Death



Trucking accidents are responsible for over 20,000 deaths or serious injuries each year in the United States. A truck accident lawyer knows how to establish liability for these causes and also how to handle aggressive claims processing by truck insurance companies. A civil lawyer does not know where to begin.

The main culprits are driver-induced reasons such as negligence, speeding, fatigue, and general failure to follow basic driving etiquette, to more severe DUI and hit and run charges. Some other causes of these accidents include improperly loaded cargo, maintenance problems, and poor road conditions.

Being on the wrong end of an 18-wheeler collision can turn your life upside-down. Victims of fatal or near fatal semi truck accidents face a long uphill battle against the large trucking insurance companies. Trying to collect for medical bills, lost wages, car repairs and pain and suffering can be an arduous task. The insurance company’s only goal is to pay out as little as possible. The recovery process for the victim can be emotionally, physically and financially exhausting. The defense teams consist of highly skilled attorneys and unyielding adjusters who are equipped with years of experience handling these exact types of claims.

The insurance companies use confusing paperwork, difficult procedures, and lengthy delays to try to discourage victims who try to handle their cases on their own. Do not attempt to seek payment on your own. You are not alone!
