Truck Crashes

Representation Of The Injured After Collisions Involving Semi-trucks

Crashes involving huge semi-trucks are some of the harshest kind. Injuries can be critical, and the claims are far more complicated than your run-of-the-mill car accident cases. If you are involved in a big rig wreck, you need to secure a stalwart attorney who will be on your side. Our semi-truck accident lawyer at The Law Office of Christopher Jackson has years of legal advocacy steeped in defending clients who were injured due to the negligence of a truck driver. You deserve to be compensated. Let us advocate for you.

Know Your Rights: Speak With Us Before The Insurance Company

If you have been involved in an accident 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. 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 accidents 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

Motor vehicle accidents 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.

Get Compensated For Your Losses

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.

Hiring an experienced semi-truck crash lawyer can ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the full amount of damages to which you are entitled. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will fight for you and represent the interests of you and your family.

  • review rating 5  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!
