In addition to the emotional, physical and financial stress experienced by victims of truck accidents and their families, they must deal with the confusing and risky business of negotiating with insurance companies for compensation for their losses.

Commercial Trucking Accidents: Recovering Compensation
There may be several sources of compensation available for losses to those injured in a truck accident. These sources can include insurance policies covering the truck driver, the driver of the auto, the injured person’s health insurance provider, the trucking company, the manufacturer of defective equipment, the agency responsible for maintaining a defective roadway and others.
Our attorneys have over 35 years of experience handling these complex claims, and have the resources to effectively recover maximum benefits for our clients. We carefully examine accident reconstructionists’ reports, DOT records, records of the truck driver’s employer, and reports filed by law enforcement agencies to identify all responsible parties and prepare a strong case for a jury. Was there a tire blowout? Scientific experts can determine whether our client is entitled to file a product liability claim. Was truck driver error the cause of the wreck? Our client may have a claim for negligence or wrongful death. Whatever the results of the attorneys’ research reveals about the truck accident, they will fight for our client’s right to the benefits he or she needs and deserves.
