We act fast while taking a meticulous, detail-oriented approach to investigating truck accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, and accidents involving catastrophic injuries. In addition to gathering and preserving records, data, and evidence, we also conduct interviews with witnesses, police officers, and emergency response personnel as necessary. In many cases, an accident reconstruction expert needs to be retained early in the process to inspect vehicles and interpret the data. Our team knows that accidents on the road can involve more than just driver error or negligence, which is why we examine all aspects of the collision, including the condition of the roads and whether the vehicles involved were properly inspected and maintained for safety. We will determine who owns the offending vehicle, who the driver works for, who is the shipper, and other important factors that may reveal who is at fault. You can rest assured we will identify all liable parties in order to maximize your recovery.

When you suffer injuries in a truck or commercial vehicle accident, you need to act quickly to preserve critical evidence. You should assume the potential defendants in your case are already working to protect themselves: Trucking companies often have rapid response teams that head to the scene of a collision while the injury victims are being evaluated in the emergency room at the nearest trauma center. Those teams often include defense lawyers and investigators who collect evidence, take photos, interview witnesses, and download data from the truck’s black box. Responsible parties in other types of cases involving catastrophic injuries also tend to devote significant resources to escaping accountability whenever possible.
You need someone on your side who can fight to protect your interests. When you work with our team of seasoned attorneys, you level the playing field and benefit from our experience, skills, and resources. We will be there to answer your questions and provide tailored guidance throughout each stage of the legal process, and we will help you ensure you do not miss any crucial deadlines for taking legal action.

Consequently, hiring an attorney can dramatically increase the odds of you securing a favorable settlement or verdict.
