My Approach in Semi-Truck Injury Cases

There is no substitute for thorough preparation and hard work on every single case. From start to finish, we do everything with the goal that we will get you every single dollar of compensation to which you are entitled. In truck accident cases, the insurance companies for the trucking companies will downplay serious injuries and not offer a fair settlement unless they can see that your case is well-prepared, and know that your attorneys will take the case to trial, if that is what it takes, to get full and fair compensation. That also means that those insurance companies need to know that they are dealing with an attorney who is experienced in truck litigation and trucking accidents. Litigating trucking accidents is not the same as litigating car accidents. We know about the trucking industry, know about both the state and federal laws that govern the trucking industry, know about the records and documents that trucking companies and drivers are required to keep, and know about the reporting requirements of trucking companies – just to name some of the intricacies of trucking litigation.
