If you have been involved in a serious trucking accident, such as with a big rig or 18-wheeler, we strongly recommend that you retain legal counsel as soon as possible. Accidents like these are life changing. We are here to make your story heard and secure the compensation you need and deserve after this type of collision.
We have proven our ability to get results for truck accident victims. In one case, we were able to recover $2,409,257.38 (net recovery to client) in a wrongful death case involving an 18-wheeler.
The massive size of big rigs increases the risk of catastrophic damages in the event of an accident. Our goal as truck accident lawyers is to advocate for the money you and your family need to move on after a tragedy like this - money to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional damage.

How federal guidelines pertain to your claim
Unlike other automobile accidents involving passenger vehicles, commercial truck accidents involve big rig trucks that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and can even surpass these weight limits when negligent truck drivers improperly load their trucks. To promote safety, the federal government imposes strict regulations on the trucking industry, and truck drivers / trucking companies are obligated to adhere to these regualtions.
Regulations enacted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) include the following:
- Truck drivers must follow specific work hours and mandatory break periods, or risk drowsy driving accidents
- Truck drivers must properly maintain their vehicle with mandatory inspections
- Truck drivers must properly load their vehicles with appropriate loading techniques
- Truck drivers must adhere to a zero tolerance policy for drug or alcohol use while driving
- Truck drivers must be thoroughly trained and educated on commercial driving responsibilities
Serious accidents, injuries, and fatalities occur when commercial truck drivers fail to operate their vehicles responsibly. If you or someone you love has been involved in a serious truck accident, we are ready to help you.
