There's No Time to Waste in Truck Accident Cases

Commercial transportation is a major U.S. industry with a vested interest in limiting corporate liability in truck accident cases. Many large companies maintain rapid response teams of trucking company attorneys, accident investigators and insurance adjusters who are on call 24 hours a day to respond immediately in the event of a serious or fatal truck accident. They have one goal: Minimize the ability of victims to seek the compensation they may be due.

Miller Weisbrod, LLP, represents victims of truck accident injury and wrongful death nationwide. We welcome the opportunity to apply our years of experience, skill and demonstrated ability to produce real results in difficult and complex cases involving:

  • Truck driver error & carelessness
  • Fraudulent logbooks
  • Equipment failure and negligent maintenance
  • Aggressive driving and speeding
  • Issues of corporate responsibility such as encouraging the use of onboard computers and texting while driving
  • Truck underride accidents due to lack of underride protection or defective under guards

If you were hurt or a loved one was severely injured or died in a trucking accident, immediate investigation and concerted legal action may be necessary to protect your right to seek maximum recovery. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Understanding the Impact of Serious Truck Accidents

Accidents involving passenger vehicles and semi trucks or 18-wheelers often unfortunately result in catastrophic injury such as head injury, spinal cord injury or brain injury as well as wrongful death. According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), a division of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 3,380 fatalities and 74,000 people injured in trucking accidents in 2009. Of these, 75 percent of fatalities and 76 percent of injured victims were occupants of other vehicles.

Large trucks were also more likely to cause multiple vehicle accidents. According to the study, 81 percent of all fatal large truck accidents involved more than one vehicle, as opposed to 58 percent for crashes between passenger vehicles.
