Truck drivers are held to a higher standard than other drivers on the road. They are professionals who often carry enormous loads across great distances. When commercial drivers are careless, the potential for damage and injury is huge. Unfortunately, many deadly accidents occur each year because truck drivers are not paying attention to the road.
If you or a loved one was hurt by an inattentive truck driver, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your injuries and losses, including wrongful death. Our firm helps clients reach the best possible case results using strong legal knowledge, extensive trial experience and tenacity in holding negligent parties accountable for their actions.
