PERSONAL INJURY LAW: TRUCK ACCIDENTS
Injured in a Tractor-Trailer Collision?
If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, you may have the right to pursue compensation for medical bills and future medical care, lost wages and projected lost earnings, and other costs. You have the right to enlist an experienced personal injury attorney to guide you through the process and help you take on the insurance company.
We have more than 30 years of experience helping trucking accident victims in Alexandria, Fairfax County and throughout Northern Virginia get all the compensation they are entitled to. We can help you, too.
Federal Trucking Regulations
Federal regulations govern truck drivers and trucking companies. They govern everything from the number of hours spent behind the wheel before taking a break to how much weight a tractor-trailer can carry.
When these regulations are violated and a truck accident occurs, there is a separate kind of statutory negligence at play than that which applies to standard car accidents. Our knowledge of these regulations allows us to prepare strong cases and hold truck drivers and truck companies accountable for violations and resulting accidents.
Investigation of Trucking Accidents
In order to determine what federal regulations have been violated, we must conduct a thorough investigation of the truck accident.
- That means reviewing log books with an understanding that information in them may be falsified.
- That means working with experts to examine trucks’ black boxes that can show critical information about speed and braking.
- We do everything necessary to gather the information to build an effective case.
We take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. You are not required to pay anything unless we get results for you.
