Sophisticated Representation For Victims Of Tractor-Trailer Wrecks
Due to trucks’ size and the tons of cargo they carry, tractor-trailer collisions can be extremely devastating to the people in the smaller vehicle. The injuries and damages these wrecks cause can leave an individual or family facing extensive recovery as well as many medical bills.
From personal injury claims to wrongful death lawsuits, Sams, Larkin & Huff, LLP, handles all types of cases stemming from truck accidents. As former insurance defense lawyers, we know that the trucking companies and their insurers will resist liability or downplay your compensation. It is important to us that clients are protected and that we aggressively pursue compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering that result from the negligence of a truck driver or another party.
Investigating The Causes Of Trucking Accidents
We take the time to fully investigate your truck accident case to determine what caused or contributed to the crash. This enables us to understand who is at fault and responsible for compensating you for your losses. Semi and tractor-trailer wrecks occur for reasons such as:
- Driver fatigue (falling asleep at the wheel)
- Driving more hours than allowed by federal laws
- Overloaded or unbalanced cargo
- Failure to properly inspect and maintain the truck
- Failure to properly train a driver
- Negligent hiring of people who shouldn’t be driving trucks
- Defective truck equipment
- Driver speeding
- Reckless driving or distracted driving
- Truckers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Injuries in a truck crash can range from minor to serious, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries, broken bones, crush injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, burns, amputations, lacerations and abrasions. We work closely with our clients to detail all the losses and hardships.
