Page-Photos-Trucks

 

Every year there is a rise in the number of injuries caused by tractor trailer drivers.  Negligence in driving and failing to do a pre-trip inspection can turn these vehicles into 70,000+ pound killing machines.

 

The leading cause of accidents
involving commercial vehicles are:

  • Drunk drivers
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Negligent loading of items
  • Leaking air brakes
  • Flat tires
  • Defective truck parts
  • Negligent Hiring
  • Negligent Retention
  • Failure to comply with FMCSA

 

At Coleman, Chambers, Rogers & Williams, LLP, our attorneys are committed to helping victims injured in serious truck accidents. Litigation of truck accidents differs greatly from the litigation of car accidents. Many issues arise such as federal jurisdiction with out-of-state drivers, the possibility of suing more than one defendant, and commercial insurance being unable to cover demands in the millions. We will leave no stone unturned by analyzing maintenance records and driver qualification files. Our experienced team of lawyers have the experience of dealing with these bigger insurance companies and bigger corporations to put together a claim that will ensure the maximum amount of compensation available.
