Serious Truck Accident Litigation
While all motor vehicle collisions are unfortunate, accidents involving 18-wheelers are particularly gruesome. The average loaded tractor-trailer outweighs the average car by at least 20 times. The size and weight of a big rig causes tremendous injuries to the other driver. It is very rare to see a minor truck accident. If you or a loved one have been in an accident with a 18-wheeler, you need to work with a team of lawyers that is up to the challenge of handling serious truck accident litigation.

Obtaining Maximum Compensation
One of the key components of truck accident litigation is obtaining the maximum compensation award for our clients. While it might be easy to get compensation for the initial, obvious expenses, our lawyers fight to make sure you are compensated for every expense you will absorb – in the short term and long term – as a result of the accident.
We will fight to get you compensation for:
- Initial expense: After an accident, you will face the cost of medical care, including hospital stays, ambulance rides, surgeries, medication and other related expenses. You will also face the lost wages that result from missing work due to your injuries, as well as property damage to your automobile and property inside of the car.
- Long-term medical expenses: In addition to those initial expenses, there is a chance you will also have long-term expenses. These can include ongoing medical care and medication, adaptive technology if you have serious injuries, and other related expenses.
- Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering is a legal term that involves the less tangible losses you face as a result of a serious accident, including psychological issues like depression or PTSD, ongoing physical pain and the diminished quality of life.
- Other expenses: Our lawyers will fight to get you compensation for every nickel you have to spend as a result of the accident. We will look into everything from travel expenses for your medical care to the time spent dealing with the aftermath of the accident.
While most insurance companies will offer a settlement that will cover those initial expenses, they fail to cover those long-term expenses and the loss of your quality of life. The goal of our motor vehicle collision representation is to make sure you are compensated for everything you have lost.
