OUR ATTORNEYS WILL HELP SOLVE YOUR COMPLEX LEGAL ISSUES
Knowledgeable Trucking Accident Attorneys
We at Johnson Law Office P.A. are a truck accident law firm that aggressively represents those people injured in trucking accidents. While showing compassion throughout the legal process to our clients, we work hard to investigate all the circumstances of the accident and acquire all the evidence that can be used to our clients' advantage in their cases. It is with our top quality truck accident attorneys that you will have the best chance of winning your claim.
Since there are usually a number of parties that can be held responsible, commercial trucking accident cases can be much more complex than auto accident cases that do not involve commercial vehicles. We make sure our trucking accident attorneys seek out all the liable parties for you. Each responsible party may have its own insurance, which makes the case more complicated. These parties may include the owner of the truck involved, the driver of the truck, and whoever hired the truck. These complex cases require a knowledgeable trucking accident lawyer.
Our auto accident attorneys include a legal team of trucking accident attorneys who have in depth knowledge of how the commercial transportation rules work. They have complete knowledge of what rules the truckers and trucking companies must abide by. Our team also knows how to acquire proper evidence that will build your case and help determine who is at fault, what commercial transportation rules were violated, and how to proceed with the case based on those findings. There is no stone left unturned when we investigate your claim. We use the law to benefit your case.
Problems Involved with Trucking Accidents
There can be devastating, even catastrophic consequences when it comes to collisions involving semi-trucks, especially if the collision involves a smaller, more vulnerable vehicle. Typically, an average commercial semi-truck weighs more than 80,000 pounds, which is almost 27 times the size of an average non-commercial vehicle. Often such collisions are a result of speeding, driver fatigue, substance abuse, or overloaded freight. What this means, is that the accident should never have occurred in the first place.
In these cases, the truck driver's log book is investigated, as well as other information. This is where negligence often becomes a clear factor in the accident. It is highly doubtful that when you are involved in a wreck with a big rig, that you walk away unscathed. In most cases, people involved in accidents with semi-trucks are seriously injured or even lose either their own life or that of a loved one as a result.
While sometimes faulty equipment is the culprit of a semi-truck accident, far too often the real culprit is driver negligence. This is because unfortunately, the semi-truck driver fails to observe the strictly imposed state and federally imposed regulations. When this occurs, the state and federal laws become advantageous to your case. It is our job as your hired truck accident law firm to assist you in receiving full compensation for the pain and suffering you've endured, the medical bills, and the wages you've lost due to injuries, so you can eventually forge ahead with your life after healing from the injuries incurred.
