18 Wheeler Accidents

18-Wheeler and Large Commercial Truck accidents are NOT "car accidents".

Let me repeat:

18-Wheeler and Large Commercial Truck accidents are NOT "car accidents".

If you treat it like a car accident, you could lose out! You need an attorney who has experience in 18-wheeler and Commercial Truck litigation who will fight to make sure you recover all you are entitled to recover. So what are you looking for?


KNOWLEDGE--- When a Big Rig driver or company is negligent, a large truck can rain devastation down on fellow motorists and destroy lives and property. For that reason, they are heavily governed by a host of federal and state laws and regulations. Knowing if and how those laws and regulations are applied can mean the difference between winning and losing your case, or leaving huge sums of money on the table.

If you've been hurt by an 18-wheeler or large commercial truck, you need an attorney who knows the law and can put that knowledge to work for you.

TEAMWORK---Timely post-accident investigation is critical to the victims success against a negligent Big Rig driver and owner. A Big Rig's wreckage, and it's driver, trailer and cargo, are often moved out of town or out of state quickly, hindering investigation and making accident reconstruction more difficult. Often times, being able to examine the cab of a Big Rig just hours after an accident reveals critical evidence of the driver's true activities in the cab in the moments before the crash. Along with GPS tracking and a host of other electronic monitoring devices now found in modern 18-Wheelers and large trucks, evidence needs to be secured before it is compromised or lost.

You need an attorney with a seasoned team of investigators who can get on your case fast and protect your rights immediately.

EXPERIENCE---Commercial Trucks and 18-wheelers often carry multiple and complex insurance policies containing large policy amount which allows them to immediately hire investigators and large law firms whose sole purpose is to pay you a little as possible for their Big Rig's negligence.
