18-Wheeler Accidents ∙ Serious Litigation
Semi truck and tractor-trailer accidents present unique challenges in litigation, including:
- Aggressive litigation: Everything is heightened in a truck accident case. The trucking companies and their insurance carriers are well-funded and have a lot to lose in these cases, especially if the truck driver caused the accident, so they fight aggressively.
- Evidentiary issues: Our lawyers have a wealth of experience uncovering essential evidence in truck accident cases. Our detailed research can uncover discrepancies in driver logbooks, errors in procedures, negligence in hiring, instances of alcohol or drug use by the driver and other issues that strengthen our clients’ cases.

- Accident reconstruction: More than most motor vehicle accidents, truck accident cases usually involve tremendous wreckage. Our attorneys have experience examining truck accident scenes and working with experts when necessary to reconstruct accidents and bolster our clients’ cases.
