Determining Fault in Catastrophic and Fatal Semi Accidents
Truck companies are known to devote substantial resources to try and limit their exposure to liability. Our firm's tractor trailer injury accident attorneys act quickly to evaluate accident scenes before critical evidence disappears. We review police reports and meet with eyewitnesses to understand liability factors. When appropriate, we consult accident scene reconstructionists to help us review property damage, especially if liability factors are unclear.
We take our approach a step further through subpoenaing records maintained by the truck company, including dispatch sheets, logs books, fuel tickets and maintenance reports. Our firm's investigative approach helps us determine where liability falls, including:
- Truck driver negligence — We aggressively hold truck drivers accountable for causing accidents related to any alcohol consumption, reckless driving and other factors which may have caused the accident.
- Truck company negligence — We will not hesitate to prove fault against truck companies who failed to follow industry regulations and encouraged drivers to speed or work with few rest breaks in order to hit their quotas.
Our legal team will incorporate as much evidence as possible to prove liability and the extent of your damages. We are committed to helping you or your loved one obtain a full financial recovery to cover medical bills, property damages, lost wages and in some cases pain and suffering.
