Big Rig Accidents

You’re driving on the road late at night. You notice the bright lights of a large 18-wheeler approaching from behind. As you slow to stop at a red light, you notice they aren’t. You punch the gas, turn the wheel and to try and get out of the way. But it’s too late…

The Facts:

Every year, there are around half a million “big rig” accidents across the US.

The death rates from big rig accidents outweigh that of any other type of motor vehicle accident.

It is estimated that 5,000 people die every year from big rig accidents.

Insurance company lawyers do all they can to not make mistakes. So should your lawyer.

In the truck driving profession, time is money, and that can lead to shortcuts. Shortcuts lead to mistakes. And just one mistake could cost you millions.*

Accidents involving big rigs are often caused by the following:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Negligent truck maintenance
  • Overloading or shifting loads
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failure to comply with safety regulations
  • Debris or obstructions in the roadway
  • Weather

We’ll come to your home or your hospital bed, or you can come to our office or meet wherever you like. Whatever the venue, always consult with an attorney before making a commitment.

Also ask if the attorney feels you have a case, and make sure they give you the reasons for their answer. A reputable attorney should be honored by your interest in them and be willing to provide the initial consultation at no charge. We certainly do.
