Get Representation After a Truck Accident
When a roadway collision involves a semi, delivery truck, construction rig or other very large vehicle, victims often suffer catastrophic injuries. Commercial truck accidents account for a high percentage of highway fatalities, and even lower-speed collisions can leave people facing overwhelming medical expenses and long-term disability from work or permanent incapacity.
Attempting to deal effectively with insurance companies and recover fair compensation on your own is challenging after any motor vehicle accident. The challenge is even greater when a trucking company or other commercial entity is focused on defending its financial interests, safety record and reputation.
