When an 18-wheeler crashes into a passenger vehicle at freeway speeds, the surviving driver and passengers in the car are often left with severe and lifelong injuries. These accidents are usually tragic and devastating for everyone involved, including the truck driver. Trucking companies and their drivers sometimes engage in business practices that violate safety and occupational laws. The companies' policies endanger not only the public, but also their own employees and drivers. In these cases, unsafe drivers or companies should be held responsible for their actions.

When such a tragic accident happens, several local, state and federal agencies might be involved in an investigation. When we become involved in a case, we will also conduct our own investigation to protect our client's rights and preserve any evidence needed for legal action.
Tight scheduling, inclement weather and breakdowns require that drivers make up lost time — usually by driving too long or too fast. Although driving too far or too long is in violation of state and federal trucking laws, they continue to do so, often in impaired conditions. Drivers can fall asleep while driving or be unable to react quickly enough to avert dangerous driving situations. Other drivers might use stimulants or illegal drugs to stay awake.
By thoroughly investigating your case, our attorneys get to the bottom of the situation. Time and again, we have demonstrated that the driver and / or his company were at fault for an accident that severely injured our client. In many of our cases, we have been able to prove that our client was entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, wage loss and pain and suffering.
