18-wheeler trucks are massive. Semi-truck crash cases are different than all other motor vehicle accidents because a crash involving a semi is more than likely to cause a catastrophic injury or even wrongful death. Although the trucking industry is vital to many businesses across the country, there are many truckers trying to make deliveries ahead of a deadline. This is a recipe for disaster when fatigued truck drivers are out on the road operating such a massive machine. There are regulations that dictate how long employees can drive without a break. We will hold the negligent parties accountable.
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of an accident which involved a truck, the lawyers at the Law Office of Keith Shot will help you get your life back on track. You may be able to recover compensation for your lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress and medical bills and we are determined to make sure you get it.
It is in your best interest to contact an attorney as soon as you are able after a truck crash for two main reasons.
- There is a deadline entitled the statute of limitations which limits how long we have to bring a claim on your behalf.
- The insurance company for the trucking company or other party which caused your accident will quickly realize the potential for a lawsuit and will start investigating soon after the accident. Our track record of dedication and aggressive representation speaks for itself as we have successfully represented numerous victims of truck accidents; however, we can not help you unless you take the first step in giving us a call.
We are equipped to handle any sort of trucking accident case. These are complex cases as for example, the trucking company that employs the driver may play a role. The truck and trailer may be owned by separate parties and could also have different insurers. Also, the accident could have involved a defective truck part, which would then involve the truck part manufacturer.
