Tractor-Trailer and Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Tractor-trailer and commercial vehicle drivers and the companies they work for are required to follow special safety rules to keep everyone safe on the road. When they fail to follow these rules, other motorists are put at risk.
At the law office of Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, all we do is help people who have been injured in accidents caused by someone else’s negligence. Our attorneys are dedicated to advocating for victims and their families after they have been in an accident with a commercial vehicle or tractor-trailer.
Skilled Legal Counsel Can Make All The Difference
Due the size of these vehicles, tractor-trailer accidents can result in severe and fatal injuries. It is especially important to work with experienced legal counsel after being involved in a commercial vehicle accident. We will advocate for your rights and fight to help you receive maximum compensation under the law.
Our lawyers will evaluate the circumstances leading up to the crash to determine if the truck driver was negligent or if the trucking company can be held liable. Truck accidents can be caused by many operating errors, including driver fatigue, distracted driving, overworked drivers rushing to make their deliveries, or not checking and fixing safety issues on their truck before driving.
All of these factors can lead to a horrific accident. We will work hard to investigate the scene of the crash as soon as possible. We will inspect the truck and trailer and obtain any and all evidence. We will also get witness statements, review the driver’s logs and other documents from the truck company to determine the cause of the crash and who can be held liable.
Our law firm has a full-time nurse paralegal on staff who helps us evaluate your injuries.
It is vital to contact us right away. Evidence can disappear quickly after an accident — we will work hard to make sure that doesn’t happen.
