18-Wheeler Accident Attorney
Because of their immense size, tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles that get into accidents can cause devastating injuries and property damage. Thousands of people sustain serious injuries or are killed in truck accidents in the U.S. each year.
Often these accidents are preventable. Through my personal injury practice, I can help individuals injured in truck accidents and their families obtain compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of future income, ongoing rehabilitation, wrongful death and other damages.
As a former criminal prosecutor, judge pro tem and court commissioner and a practicing lawyer for more than 35 years, I understand better than most attorneys how truck accidents damage victims’ lives. I am a tenacious courtroom litigator who is unafraid to pursue aggressive lawsuits against negligent truck drivers, their employers and their insurance companies. For more than 16 years, I represented insurance companies in personal injury litigation. This experience game me valuable insight into how insurance adjusters and insurance attorneys think about and evaluate cases.
Retain me, and I will investigate and identify the specific causes that led to your injuries, including:
Equipment malfunctions due to inadequate maintenance by the employer or driver
Failure by drivers and employers to take required rest periods and time off the road (driver fatigue)
Drug or alcohol use by drivers
Poorly secured loads
With the assistance of accident reconstructionists and other experts, I can determine how your accident happened and which parties should be held liable for your serious injuries. If a loved one died as a result of injuries sustained in a fatal truck accident, I can help you recover survivor’s damages for your loss of companionship, funeral expenses and loss of future income. Whether before a jury or in negotiations, I can represent you from a position of strength and seek the maximum compensation due to you.
Contact me for a free consultation to discuss your circumstances and options. I look forward to speaking with you. More on this website
