Trucking Accidents
Motor Vehicle Accidents

These often have underlying systemic failures, like negligent hiring of drivers, routine violation of hours, or total disregard of training standards.

Injured by a Truck?

These typically involve negligence of the other driver. Sometimes the driving is reckless, like in DUI car crashes, but most of the time, it is just inattention to the circumstances which leads to the collision.

Auto Cases vs. Trucking Cases

How they differ and why it matters

Commercial trucks are bigger, heavier, and longer than cars. They have the ability therefore to crush car. Therefore, they are highly regulated to ensure public safety.

Commercial motor carriers must pledge themselves to rigorous safety protocol. The companies have significant truck maintenance, reporting procedures, and screening obligations. Their drivers need to have the knowledge, training, and skills before they are supposed to be permitted on the highways. In short, the purpose of the regulations is to ensure loads are run safely.

Most law enforcement are not trained or experienced in what to look for, ask for, or even trained on how to gather evidence in a trucking collision. This puts a victim at a loss after a truck wreck. Often, he or she gets rushed to the hospital and learns about the scene later from law enforcement.

Without getting the right information at the scene, who the relevant parties are.    Frequently, a driver and the name of his motor carrier are the only ones listed in crash reports. Loads frequently go from shipper, to broker, to motor carrier, to receiver, and sometimes to the insurance company.  All along the way there may be different owners or leasers of the truck and trailer.

Enter the attorney and trucking experts. Ideally, the attorney should be familiar with the nuances of trucking industry laws and regulations. An attorney should stay on top of the trending issues in trucking law and the transportation cycle. He or she should be knowledgeable to secure information necessary to prove the case and be diligent to get past the insurance company’s efforts to limit access to crucial evidence.

Most attorneys also lack the experience required to properly handle a truck-related accident.  That is where this firm comes into the picture.  If we accept your case, we are willing to litigate it.


"I was rear-ended in a car accident by a lady who had no insurance. I enlisted David's help. I wanted to be sure I got the medical help I needed to recover. He helped me navigate the legal world....I could just concentrate on getting better.... Best decision!"
- Cathy

"The insurance company was insisting that my lapse of time from pain after my PT made me ineligible for any additional treatment. Not only did David get the insurance company to cover all of my additional treatments to fix my back & neck again, but he got me several thousands of additional dollars on top of it.

David also helped me adjust my insurance plan cover me even better than before for very little additional money per month."
