Cases We Handle

We use our in-depth knowledge and demonstrated trial experience to advocate on behalf of individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries caused by trucking accidents. We also represent families of victims of wrongful death due to truck driver or corporate negligence. Our experience includes cases involving:

  • Fraudulent logbooks:
    The truck driver's logbook is often the key piece of evidence used to determine the cause of a trucking accident. Our lawyers are skilled in obtaining and analyzing logbooks for any evidence of wrongdoing or tampering by the individual truck driver or the company itself.
  • Truck driver fatigue:
    Truck drivers are required by law to rest for defined periods of time between driving shifts. We pay special attention to the history of a particular driver for over-hours driving whether due to personal gain or company pressure.
  • Distracted driving:
    From using onboard computers when behind the wheel to texting while driving, distracted truck drivers can cause devastating and catastrophic accidents. We thoroughly investigate the driver — his or her background, qualifications and experience, and state of mind and health — to determine if a pattern of wrongdoing or recklessness exists.
  • Excessive speeding:
    Traveling at excessive speeds in a tractor-trailer is not only unlawful — it is dangerous and puts other motorists at high risk for catastrophic injury or death. Like any driver, truck drivers have the responsibility to follow the rules of the road. We seek to hold them accountable for speeding and any other unlawful conduct such as drug or alcohol use while on the job.
  • Truck underride accidents:
    Trucking companies are required to ensure all 18-wheelers and big rigs have underride protection to prevent smaller cars from slipping underneath the trailers in an accident. When they do not, individuals have a greater risk of suffering from decapitation, severe head injury or death.
