Been in a truck crash? Know Your Rights: Speak With Us Before The Insurance Company
If you have been involved in truck crashes caused by a semi-truck company, our truck attorneys advise you to speak with a lawyer before talking to the trucking company's insurance adjuster. Bringing a truck accident claim against those liable for your injury may be difficult because there may be multiple insurance companies involved. Truck crashes require a knowledgeable trucking accident attorney will request the driver's log, fuel receipts, drug test results and any black box data or evidence to use in your case.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the most common factors in large truck crashes are:
- Driver fatigue
- Legal drugs
- Driving too fast for prevailing road conditions
- Failing to provide a proper lookout
- Road unfamiliarity
- Feeling pressure caused by the trucking company
Negligent hiring and supervision of truckers is also common. However, after an accident, a trucking company will pull out all the stops to defend itself. Because trucking companies are large, they have a lot of resources and attorneys on staff to minimize their damages and dispute fault. We recommend that you do not sign anything until you consult an attorney who understands personal injury law.
Fatalities Are Common
Truck crashes involving large tractor-trailers have a higher fatal accident rate per mile traveled than passenger cars and trucks. When a car and a truck collide, more than likely, the occupant of the car will be the one who suffers serious injuries, disability or death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 98 percent of the accident cases in which there is a death when a semi-truck and a passenger vehicle collide, the person killed is an occupant of the passenger vehicle.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, or your loved one was killed in an accident involving an 18-wheeler due to the truck driver's negligence, you have a right to compensation for your damages, including medical costs, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.

It was a process but, in the end I am happy with how The Law Offices of Christopher Jackson handled my case. And fought for the settlement I deserved.
My husband and I were very happy with the results of our case!!
Mr. Jackson was able to complete expungement on 4 charges while multiple other lawyers could not. I now have a 100% clean record. Thank You, Christopher Jackson!
My case was very close to home. Mr. Jackson was extremely understanding and patient with me. He made sure I was okay and didn’t push me to make decisions lightly. He made sure I understood everything and if I didn’t he explained things to me. His character showed that he was not just in this business for the money. He genuinely cares for his clients and their outcome with the case. Would definitely recommend him.
We hired Chris to help us when we were involved in an automobile accident and were injured. The other driver's insurance company was giving us the run around up until that point. Chris was able to make sure that all of our bills were covered and we received a fair settlement. His assistant Sheila was awesome to work with throughout the process as well. I highly recommend!
