Trucking Accidents

A collision with a large truck is a devastating event that can lead to lifelong consequences or even death. Semis, buses, tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers routinely carry loads that weigh between 10,000 and 80,000 pounds; when a vehicle of this size and mass crashes into an average car or SUV, it creates an enormous impact. Unfortunately, trucking accidents are as common as they are catastrophic: since the late 1970s, approximately 12 to 13 percent of all traffic-related fatal crashes have involved a large truck, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Nationally-Recognized and Award-Winning Trucking Attorney

The attorneys at Truck Wreck Justice practice with a primary focus on personal injury cases that arise from trucking and bus collisions. Our founding attorney Morgan Adams is a nationally-recognized and award-winning trucking attorney whose practice is completely concentrated in truck and bus accident law; he has spoken and written on trucking accident litigation in respected venues throughout the country, and other attorneys regularly hire him to enhance results for their clients in cases that involve large trucks and buses.

We Represent Trucking Accident Victims to Demand Justice

While the majority of commercial truck drivers abide by the law and drive safely and sensibly, some drivers engage in negligent behavior that violates traffic laws and safety regulations, and working conditions in the trucking industry sometimes encourage these dangerous decisions. Unreasonable deadlines can encourage drivers to break speed limits and work extremely long shifts against safety regulations. In turn, these grueling shifts can lead to fatigue, which is sometimes combated by drug use to counteract exhaustion.

Truck drivers and trucking companies together are responsible for creating a work environment in which safety comes first and where laws and regulations are respected and followed at all times. When they break this obligation, ordinary drivers and law-abiding truckers alike suffer the consequences. Our firm stands prepared to represent those victims and to demand compensation for injuries and personal hardship caused by negligent individuals and companies.

We Have the Resources to Handle Complex and Challenging Cases

Tractor-trailer wrecks frequently involve multiple vehicles colliding or even large “pile-up” crashes, which lead to complex accident scenes with large amounts of evidence to examine. Trucking companies often employ sizable legal teams and have insurance representatives who work to minimize the company’s liability and suppress efforts at a recovery. All of these factors combine to make large truck crashes an especially challenging and complex area of personal injury law.

At Truck Wreck Justice, our attorneys have a track record of success in handling these difficult cases. We have years of experience in trucking accident litigation and a wealth of techniques and resources that allow us to “level the playing field” and make successful recoveries on behalf of our clients.

Because of our firm’s primary focus on trucking accidents, we have an extensive national network of recognized experts who help us investigate and reconstruct these crashes. We have years of experience interviewing witnesses, gathering hidden evidence, and taking comprehensive photographs to create a full and accurate picture of the circumstances around a trucking accident. We use this information to craft efficient, aggressive legal strategies that address our clients’ needs and hold negligent parties accountable.
